Presented by Joel Devereux in Partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

Part of

MELT Festival

If you’re looking for a Goddess, then you clearly don’t Nomi! Joel Devereux presents tribute to the 1995 cult classic Showgirls that is more satisfying than a doggy chow and Cristal lunch.

With an all-star boylesque and drag cast (who are full of brown rice and vegetables), they’re ready to serve up some tantalising tease in celebration of the once notorious flop, now eccentric cult masterpiece.

Put on your favourite ‘Versayce’ dress and come enjoy this gender-bent tribute to the best worst film ever made; a ticket costs less than a private dance at the Cheetah Lounge.
