QVWC x Melbourne Fringe Festival Opening Launch
The Queen Victoria Women's Centre’s is excited to announce a program of events as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival 2023! The program will showcase new comedy and theatre by some exciting women & non-binary performers.
A Brutally Honest Fairytale, With Cinderella dead, Prince Charming is forced to marry a stepsister whose foot just will not fit the glass slipper. Full of music and slapstick, this show is a loving feminist satire of fairy tales.
Becoming Ghosts, How can we reconcile with past ghosts? In this visceral new dance work, movement artist Ate Cheska draws from horror and folklore to confront the things they both fear and revere.
Broke[n],A comedic look into existing in a society built for others as a burned out (not so) former emo kid
Cupid Reincarnate, Delightfully silly anarchy! A camp clown cabaret exploring desire, excess & love.
FLUSH, is a history of tinder, hook-ups, situationships, dreams, nightmares and hallucinations. Hot, wet, icky, romantic, tragic, comic, biblical, cinematic. It’s me, raw and unfiltered; living in a climate crisis, drowning in the dating pool.
Packing, Marigold is moving out and you've been hired to pack her stuff. Can you curiously explore her studio, handle her personal objects and sort through her belongings to piece together Marigold’s story? This is a one-person interactive and immersive show.
Talk Dirty in French, A tantalising lesson in the language of love. Explore seductive phrases, laugh out loud and foster sexy connections.
The Vegabus: Tales of an Uber Driver, A comedic storytelling perspective of a queer/trans uber driver, through a multitude of stories, personalities and experiences along the ride.
Twenty Minutes to Nine, Life's a party. At some point we have to leave; some of us just choose when. A raw, honest, funny and heartfelt account of loss and friendship. Nominated Best Performance 2017 Melbourne Fringe. Storytelling, spoken word and live musical soundscape.
Undress me, I’m Yours, A Burlesque Comedy Cabaret about the two F words… feminism and f**king. Maddy sheds one layer of clothing at a time and shares her hilarious sexcapades. It's a show that educates and thrills, proving that orgasms aren't just for men anymore!
Water Dripping on a Stone, We are all Wildflowers innately in need of our freedom in order to flourish but our time is being exhausted and the only relief we are given are distractions to the problem. Water dripping on a Stone is the influence that ideas can have on our lives.
Whale, a raw and poignant show that's part comedy, part theatre and a lot of storytelling. It tells the true story of Courtney, a fat & funny lesbian, and her journey from boy crazy, hyper feminine ‘pick me’ girl to a woman who doesn't give a f*ck.
