After wowing audiences across the globe The Dark Party are set to do their first show on Australian soil in three years at an exclusive show at Ballaarat Mechanics Institute this December on the 15th.
The Dirty Brothers Sideshow consists of Dirty Shep, Dirty Pat and Dirty Gordo and their show The Dark Party premiered in Melbourne in 2008. Since then it has gone on to be Australia’s greatest sideshow export, and has taken the role of visual gothic theatre at its very best!
Within the show, The Dirty Brothers smash the boundaries of traditional trick based performance and comedic theatre by placing sideshow stunts into emotional theatrical contexts! Rattling the cage of modern circus, these stunts become secondary to the artistry, characters and scenarios brought to life through the use of new and old fashioned theatre techniques.
Driven by a powerful soundtrack, not a word is spoken throughout. The whole piece evokes a silent movie about a trio of melancholic, pathetic hobo clowns. The Dark Party is surreal, sublime and just plain funny, you won’t want to miss this!
It all goes down at Ballaarat Mechanics Institute (117 Sturt Street, Ballarat) on Saturday 15th December. Tickets via Try Booking
