Perth International Cabaret Festival (PICF) is Western Australia's first curated cabaret festival and features a star-studded line-up of local heroes and national treasures.
Across 7 days with exclusive performances from Meow Meow, Lior, Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse, Michael Griffiths, Steven Oliver, Perth Cabaret Collective, Carlotta, Louise Anton, Rick Steele, Fiona Choi, Dean Misdale and Jamie Mykaela just to name a few. PICF also includes free events; masterclasses, talks and workshops, there’s something for everyone.
As the inaugural cabaret festival, His Majesty’s Theatre in cabaret mode provides the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable program of winter delights. With signature cocktails, wine and grazing platters available, see several shows and stay for a whole night of delectable entertainment.
Cabaret is a melting pot of evolving forms of story-telling intertwined with music that can’t be pinned down to any one discipline. A good cabaret show isn’t just titillating, it’s transgressive; upending everyday ideas about art and bodies, politics and sex, it’s provocative as well as pleasing.
Cabaret is intimate, immediate and breaks all the rules! Join us for cabaret in the West End.
Perth International Cabaret Festival runs from 19 - 27 June 2021.
