The Glory Box…Paradise

Moira Finucane - Image by Jodie HutchinsonThe legendary, genre-busting, globally acclaimed seductive and subversive cult-hit Salon storms into Melbourne en-route to Buenos Aires via London and Hong Kong.

Finucane & Smith’s annual winter showcase of the best and the wildest – seductive spectacle, live art exotica, wild child circus and jaw-dropping cabaret – is in town for 5 weeks only and this year we are in paradise.

Watch the feathers fly as Queen Provocateur Moira Finucane and the world’s most addictive divas unleash their latest exotic and inimitable Franken-routines in the atmospheric warehouse of fortyfivedownstairs.

From vicious swans to visceral rock, demented disco to the darkly gothic, Shinjuku striptease to German expressionist fan dancing, take the plunge into The Glory Box…Paradise!

Flying in from London, the infamous red hanky stripper Ursula Martinez (La Soiree, La Clique, Your Emails My Stories) with a whole new bag of tricks; plus much awarded circus wild child Jess Love (Candy Butchers, The Little One Said) joining Glory Box favourites Tokyo Terawatt Yumi Umiumare, Parisian dance siren Holly Durant and backroom ballerina Lily Paskas.

Also this year’s bumper line-up includes guest star bombshell songbird & Circus Oz ringmistress Sarah Ward (Yana Alana, Sista She) as she’s never been seen before!

After setting 110,000 audience members worldwide in raptures, and critics raving from Budapest to Paris, Stockholm to Tokyo, The Glory Box is ready for table seating, literary lounging, cocktail swigging, red hanky stripping, wild dancing, rock’n’rolling, demented disco, plus surprise pop up stars, and much much more!
