Featured Video - Glory Box To Cuba!


The Australian art-house of Finucane & Smith Unlimited has become internationally infamous for their exquisite Theatrical Spectacles that hijack cabaret & high art, burlesque & drama, dance & the literary, circus and sideshow and meld them into subversive, erotically charged visions of humanity, power, liberation and desire.

From Liberation Variety to Literary Salons, Surreal Indoor Carnivals and full length dramas their work is strangely populist and ultra intelligent.

They believe art can change culture and change lives and they take their art to people around the world.


Extraordinary…powerful…when burlesque is good, it is transforming for performer and audience and has a unique ability to enter the mainstream without losing any of its power to subvert… this art form has life in it yet


Sexy, potent and in-your-face … explosive, irreverent and confronting


Seductive, utterly subversive and bursting at the seams with monstrous talent  

SUNDAY AGE, Melbourne

From the sublime to the subversive, the hot to the hilarious… outrageous and unforgettable


If I have to choose either to die or not see this show, I rather die! My last night of living should be with full of happiness and pleasure!!


Moira Finucane is the beauty queen of the damned

HERALD SUN, Melbourne

Stunning, powerful, emotive…Like David Lynch’s ideal of vaudeville

4ZZZ, Brisbane

Transgressive, razor sharp and explosive

NOVI, Croatia


Glory Box

The legendary, indefinable, genre-busting, burlesque-eats-its young Salon that has critics raving and festival audiences around the world in raptures.



Carnival of Mysteries

From the world’s pre-eminent purveyors of provocative variety and intimate spectacle comes the freakishly beautiful, seductive, surreal indoor carnival of mysteries.

The Flood

From Patrick White Award winner Jackie Smith comes The Flood: An Australian Gothic. When the waters rise, the monsters break the surface.


Salon de Danse

Whirl into Finucane & Smith’s decrepit dance hall, dipped in acid green and noir black, a mesmerising physical display from a wild pack of dancers & physical artistes.


The Feast of Argentina Gina Catalina

A supper show… sumptuous food… stupendous stories



The ‘beauty queen of the damned’ unleashes the Gothic in all her wicked ways.


Caravan Burlesque

The pop up Parisian Salon of sultry songs & underdressed sirens, Bollywood love gods, circus stars, backroom ballerinas and gothic queens…
