Queensland Cabaret Festival 2017
After three successful and sizzling years, the Queensland Cabaret Festival is returning in 2017. This year boasts an impressive selection of international and Australian performers ready to set stages alight at Brisbane Powerhouse, QPAC and Queensland Multicultural Centre this June.
Born in Paris, the city of love, the intimate and provocative art of cabaret has evolved into one of the most captivating live performance genres – an eclectic mix of music, dance, drama and comedy. Cabaret comes in many forms, but at its heart, it is a form of storytelling. It can be stunningly beautiful as well as thrilling and hilarious. It’s an ever-changing evolution of ideas and performances, which is what makes it so darn appealing.
This year’s festival is brimming with internationally acclaimed talent including iconic Australian singer-songwriter Paul Kelly with Irish chanteuse Camille O’Sullivan, Grammy award-winning jazz guitarist Bill Frisell, star of stage and screen Alan Cumming, The Cat Empire’s front man Felix Riebl and the world-renowned Sierra Boggess on her debut Australian tour.
