Discover the water-soaked wonder of SOAP

A fusion of modern circus, comedy, cabaret and bathtubs, it’s unlikely you’ve ever seen a show like SOAP before. Just another addition to this year’s impressive Brisbane Festival program, SOAP transforms a typical stage into a bathroom, providing its eight acrobats with a floor of tubs to use as props throughout the performance. The steamy production will also include some opera and a little romance, with a love story woven into the plot. Directed by Markus Pabst and Maximilian Rambaek, this will be the first time the German show will have been performed in Queensland. @ QPAC, September 18–22 more

Storytime turns sour with Twisted Tales

The thought of a fairytale might conjure up images of sweetness and light, but if you take a peek into the pages of a Brothers Grimm or stick to the original Hans Christian Andersen, you’ll find that fairy tales were originally a combination of wickedness, magic and intrigue. more
