Hot, Delicious, And Subversively Glamorous Jessi Lewis

Melbourne based performer Jessi Lewis partners with Brisbane’s New Globe Theatre

Following their highly successful international collaborations.

Jessi Lewis will once again team with Lismore’s award-winning artist Ana Wojak.

This new work will stage in Brisbane’s New Globe Theatre.

The pair presents ‘Crossfade’, a collaborative exploration into dress-ups, gender, transgression.

The assumed roles and which society thrust upon us.

In a contemporary world obsessed with appearances and the superficial.

It works with costume stimuli from which layered vocabularies of movement and image emerge.

Presented in a narrative of rich episodic tableaux.

Jessi Lewis and Ana Wojak promise something hot, delicious, and subversively glamorous.

Crossfade highlights the commonality between these uniquely different artists.

Creating a through-line that assumes a deeper connection which ultimately binds this performance.

Most importantly, Jessi Lewis and Ana Wojak come together to showcase this amazing performance

Crossfade will be staged Thursday 24 March at the New Globe Theatre, 122 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley. Tickets are available online at thenewglobetheatre.com.au $15 pre-sale/$18 on the door.
