Briefs: Burlesque with Balls
In 2010, Briefs transitioned from the late night performance club to a complete performance ensemble when the company was engaged to create its first ‘official’ full-length work. This all-male ragtag team of skilful buccaneers contort vaudeville, circus, boylesque, dance and clowning, in an evening of wicked humour, absurdity and blatant displays of flesh.
Since then, Briefs have swaggered, shimmied, swished and swung all over the World, selling out in London, Berlin, Paris, Auckland, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide.
