Briefs slams together a beef-caked and disorderly line-up of Australia’s finest performers and mischief-makers in a circus-infused variety show for the not-so-faint-hearted.

In the perfect setting of The Idolize Spiegeltent at Prince Alfred Park, Parramatta, this ragtag team of skilful buccaneers reinvent vaudeville and circus, dance and clowning, in an evening of wicked humour, absurdity and blatant displays of flesh.

Raw and savvy, they mix political conscience and theatrical rule-breaking with heaps of clever parody and good old entertainment.

A night out at Briefs – part of this year’s Sydney Festival – is variety in the truest sense. It even features a meat raffle!
