The surprising, subversive and supremely sexy adult circus BLUSH is set to sizzle this summer at Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC).

Following previous QPAC’s summer hits like Club Cremorne and The Kaye Hole, the award-winning “circus for grown-ups” will push the boundaries and scandalise with an immersive experience in the intimate Cremorne Theatre from January 5.

Audiences will be seduced and entertained with acts including lush operatic cabaret, gravity-defying acrobatics, daredevil fire-spinning, a Cyr wheel love story and more.

BLUSH director Elena Kirschbaum said the idea behind the show was to make a sexy circus cabaret, something “fun, spectacular and a great night out”.

“BLUSH is a show that joyfully celebrates different sexualities and relationships, and female sexuality without shame or judgement, and without taking ourselves too seriously,” Kirschbaum said.

“The show has been running for five years now and has toured around Australia and the UK. We are thrilled to be bringing it to QPAC this summer.”

The cast includes Christine Ibrahim, Paul Westbrook, Jessie McKibbin, Sophie Seccombe, Chris Carlos and Lyndon Johnson.

The acclaimed adults-only circus has previously won Best Circus at Adelaide Fringe in 2020, as well as Best Circus honours at Adelaide Fringe 2018 and Fringeworld 2019.

BLUSH opens at QPAC on January 5. Tickets are on sale now.
