FLUX VARIETY NIGHT Fringe World reimagined

Flux

Fringe World reimagined? Yes please! If you, like most of Perth, miss the wonders of Fringe, and yearn for a taste of the best entertainment our fine city can offer, sate your appetite at Perth’s newest variety night, Flux. Dished up by fabulous local couple-about-town Bobbie Sox and Ava St. James, Connections Nightclub is set to host a cavalcade of the brilliant and the beautiful this Friday night, as they pop the Flux cherry in inevitably flashy fashion.

Planned to run every 2 months, Bobbie Sox explains that, “the main aim is to give performers from any genre a platform to try new material or bring out an old favourite. We are really trying to focus on the diversity of the artists as well. We want to give people from all backgrounds, ethnicities, lifestyles somewhere to perform and have the art lovers of Perth a place to see a range of performances and performers that they might not come across. Hopefully they’ll be pleasantly surprised.”

Featured acts include some of the who’s who of Perth entertainment, from a vast array of genres:

SUGAR DU JOUR

Whats on the menu? Sacre Bleu! It’s Sugar Du Joure! She is the crystalled countess of comedy burlesque in Western Australia. With tassel skills so sweet they will give you a toothache and our reigning First Runner Up of Miss Burlesque Australia 2016. She has shimmied far and wide, from the dusty stages of Pannawonnica, to the windy shores of Geraldton, and even merry ol London. Currently bound and gagged for her maiden voyage to France in May for the 1st Annual Bordeaux Burlesque Festival. Ladies and gentlemen, she is the Storm in a G Cup, the breast in the West: Miss Sugar Du Joure.

ADAM PETER SCOTT

Adam Peter Scott has performed all over the country, winning awards, hearts and minds along the way. He’s best known as the host of the live quiz show Trivia Death Match, has performed sold out and critically acclaimed shows at the Fringe World Festival three years in a row, most recently the meta-comedy disasterpiece Sophie Joske: Household Name. The point is he’s pretty good, alright?

KENJAI: GODDESS OF THE HEAVENLY BOOTY

Kenjai, Goddess of the Heavenly Booty is the holy trinity of pinup queen, burlesque starlet and hood rat. She swaggered onto the scene in 2014 with Australia’s first hip-hop cabaret “Burlesque Beats” and has been ruling the streets ever since. Described as having “unashamed swagger”, this big booty burlesquer has quickly risen through the ranks. She is the State Winner of Burlesque Idol Australia 2016 and was awarded the title of “Best Powerhouse Performer” at the Burlesque Idol Grand Finale.

ADAM O’CONNOR-MCMAHON

At the tender age of 4, Adam Mac found himself lost in a ball pit. He soon realized his only choice was to juggle his way out. After hours of juggling, Adam was finally free! Unfortunately, he was left with a horrible juggling habit that he has struggled with ever since. Adam is a juggler, acrobat and clown who is guaranteed to leave you in stitches (but not necessarily the good kind).

COUGAR MORRISON

Cougar Morrison is the androgynous-Adonis about town. This sassy New Orleans native, often described as “the love-child of Piaf and Bowie” has been hailed as a “cabaret MUST-SEE!” Since falling onto the drag-scene more ferociously than he does on a juicing carrot, Cougar has climbed ranks – winning the title of Pop Princess 4 and nominated for best new talent, best cabaret and performer of the year at the Proud Awards. Just like syphilis, it is futile to resist Cougar. Let him tighten his corset, pull down his pants and warble his way into your hearts.

MC SOPHIE JOSKE

Sophie ‘Ace’ Joske is the hostess with the mostest. The mostest what? Wit! Charm! Booty! She’s a one-woman charisma machine who isn’t afraid to get weird. Ever since her debut solo show ‘Become a Functional Adult in 45 Minutes’ sold out like a pile of hot biscuits at Perth Fringe World in 2015 she’s been delighting, confounding and (unintentionally) arousing audiences in many glamorous locations: Melbourne! Sydney! Broome! A dance studio in a community centre! She’s just finished a sold out, extended run of her new show Sophie Joske: Household Name and she is hungry to get her grubby little hands on the sumptuous smorgasbord of variety that shall be Flux Fridays.

Flux starts this Friday April 28 at Connections Nightclub. Tickets from www.trybooking.com.
