Brisbane Powerhouse and Brian Lucas presents
Created and Performed by Brian Lucas
Wed 24 Oct - Sat 3 Nov 2012
Returning after a highly successful inaugural World Theatre Festival 10 season, Performance Anxiety draws parallels between the anxieties of a performer and those we experience while ‘performing’ in our day-to-day lives.
Whether ‘performing’ be in the bedroom, boardroom or the supermarket checkout queue, nationally acclaimed performer/ choreographer Brian Lucas holds a mirror up to our anxieties revealing reflections which dazzle and provoke.
Performed in an intimate cabaret setting, you’ll be able to sit back, wine in hand and absorb the tales of the terminally stressed, the people under pressure, and the heroes on their small crusades. Brian combines dance, movement, physical imagery, voice
and sound to create an intriguing and confronting performance.
“A seamless 90 minutes of lacerating performance that often had you with your mouth hanging open at the sheer bravura of the Beast…an undoubted master work” - Real Time
“One of Australia's most commanding actor-dancers" -The Australian
Duration: 90 minutes with intervals
Please note: this show is recommended for people aged 15 years and older due to coarse language and nudity. A hazer is used in this performance.
