2014 La Soirée Cast Announced

November 4, 2013 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

La Soirée and Sydney Opera House are pleased to unveil the line-up of international stars who will surprise and delight Sydney audiences this summer. Outrageous, sexy and hilarious, La Soiréeis an ever-changing feast of the finest cabaret, burlesque, circus and contemporary vaudeville acts from around the globe.

An original member of La Soirée, Miss Behave is the last female sword-swallower in the West. The husky voiced courtesan of comedy will leave you squirming in your seat with her legendary sideshow acts. It just wouldn’t be La Soirée without her.

Armed with her cult striptease act and its mischievous disappearing hanky, British cabaret star Ursula Martinez will make her long awaited return to The Studio. With a performance that shifts between the high and low brow, audiences can expect to emerge from this performance with a surprising awareness of anatomy.

Two of the cabaret world’s finest aerial artists, Canada’s Hugo Desmarais and Britain’s Katherine Arnold will send shivers down audience member’s spines with their gravity defying acrobatics, seductively spinning above the audience in their custom-built ‘The Cage’. A double display of strength and artistry, their electrifying and sultry aerial performance will dazzle with their Australian debut performance.

Making their Australian debut, two of Sweden’s most successful contemporary circus artists, David & Fofo
(David Eriksson and Fouzia Fofo Rakez) will amaze with their inspiring performances with ping-pong balls, juggling, acrobatics and trapeze work. With a dynamic romantic chemistry that has been established over the last ten years, their sometimes odd, always high-energy works will be an unmissable new addition to the Sydney season.

Hailing from Elcho Island off the coast of Arnhem Land, YouTube sensations The Chooky Dancers will be joining La Soiree for the first time. The Chooky Dancers became overnight internet sensations when their contemporary dance version of the traditional ‘Zorba the Greek’ went viral. With over 2million views worldwide, the young dance troupe fuse traditional Aboriginal and contemporary dance, comedy and clowning, resulting in an uplifting, inspiring performance.

Channelling the great operatic divas and church-singing jazz mamas, Australia’s fastest rising cabaret star Yana Alana will join the La Soirée crew with sassy charmer and Australian hula hoperJess Love.
