Queensland Cabaret Festival 2017

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse, QPAC and Queensland Cabaret Foundation

After three successful 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, Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) and Queensland Multicultural Centre this June.

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, a mix of music, song, dance, comedy and movement.

Many think of cabaret as an evening stroll down a Paris cobblestone street, falling into a small wine bar and listing to Edith Piaf covers. However, it is so much more. Originating in the city of love, it has evolved and taken over performance spaces across the world, offering intimate, heartfelt performances, soulful recitals and comical narratives.

Queensland Cabaret Festival 2017 invites you behind the red velvet curtain to discover the scintillating world of cabaret! From spine-tingling home-grown talents, to international sensations, this year’s Festival tells stories of love, loss, passion and fame. Performing across three venues this year, immerse yourself in the sublime acoustics of QPAC’s Concert Hall, feel the heat with the intimacy of Brisbane Powerhouse, then discover new and exciting local talent at Queensland Multicultural Centre.

Whether you want an evening soaked in nostalgia or a contemporary romp of music re-imagined, this year’s Festival will connect with your musical soul and leave you singing out for more.

Brisbane Powerhouse thanks our Queensland Cabaret Festival sponsors Ernst and YoungSofitel Brisbane Central and JCDecaux.
