Darwinites can expect a steamy dry season this August as Darwin Festival today announces that the Aurora Spiegeltent is headed to the Top End with a season of Strut & Fret’s saucy new production BLANC de BLANC.

Follow the glittery path from Festival Park to the Aurora’s pop-up address on Parliament Lawns where, for the duration of the Festival, BLANC de BLANC will serve up the finest cabaret and acrobatic talent from around the world – expect big moves, great tunes, lots of skin and more than a few surprises.

Following sold out seasons at London’s West End, Brisbane Festival, Adelaide Fringe and the Sydney Opera House, the Darwin premiere promises night after night of titillating acts designed to infatuate, illuminate and delight.

Darwin Festival Acting Artistic Director Felix Preval said, “It’s been 5 years since we’ve had a Spiegeltent at Darwin Festival and we’re incredibly excited to be bringing one back with this sensational new show. BLANC de BLANC has been described as ‘champagne cabaret’, every act is a cheeky toast to the iconic party tipple. It’s a fabulous fusion of vintage glamour and high-end circus, and promises to be one hell of a party.”

BLANC de BLANC is directed by Scott Maidment (LIMBO, Catina, Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour), choreographed by Kevin Maher (who has choreographed for the likes of Justin Bieber, Britney Spears and Madonna), with costumes by James Browne (All Saints, Australian Idol).

The full program of cabaret, theatre, comedy, dance, visual arts, words and ideas, music and family fun will be announced on Wednesday 21 June.
