After a sold out National Tour in 2019, a world wide pandemic, and after a sold out encore season in Brisbane in 2021, an award winning debut at Adelaide Fringe, and a sold out return Melbourne season at Her Majesty’s Theatre as part of Midsumma Festival, MATADOR comes back for one more shot at love to end 2021 at The Atheneum Theatre, Melbourne!

Inspired by a tale as old as time, MATADOR is a fiery fusion of burlesque, dance and jaw-dropping circus acts. Set across a fiery Spanish sunset, this is a thematic tale of forbidden love, carnal desires, passion and pain, a tale of a love torn bull & the seductive Matador!

The show takes us on an emotionally charged journey through love and it’s many faces; from the first moments you lay your eyes on that someone special, the butterflies, the flirting and sometimes, the doubt. A journey of self-discovery, identity and sexuality, of lust, sex and passion.

The show also explores the trials and tribulations of love, from the pain of unrequited love to the effects of infidelity on a relationship. MATADOR is a celebration of love, friendship and the bonds that hold us together.

Comprising a colourful cast of 14 incredible performers, MATADOR features non-stop entertainment from start to finish. High energy commercial dance pieces, beautiful, touching contemporary and ballet acts as well as steamy Latin numbers intertwine with saucy burlesque acts, pole dancing and hair raising aerial and circus acts.
