Comfort Zones

Next Wave
Description:
Ever wanted to see an opera singer hula-hoop?
Ever wanted to hear a dancer ... talk?

Well, now's your chance!

Taking place inside the legendary Witches in Britches theatre restaurant (home to Melbourne's only full-sized polystyrene dragon), Comfort Zones features the curdled cream of Australia's performance underground.

It's a game of artistic musical chairs, with fake cobwebs and haunted zombies, where we ask our artists to make the ultimate sacrifice. Theatre-makers, musicians and god-knows-who-else will all relinquish the safety of their personal practices, devising short performance works that are as far from their speciality as possible.

Comfort Zones culminates in a rockin' all-night after-party with a CTJ (Cassette Tape Jockey) in the Dungeon Disco. It's got a bed of nails -on the ceiling.
