Le Freak is sideshow as you've never seen before - revolutionised from the inside!

Join the sideshow revolt! Le Freak is back bigger and better! Hot on the heels of two sell-out seasons, world-class, award-winning trans, queer, disabled and sex worker performers sharpen their swords and stilettos to take down capitalism. In this show, joy is a radical act and the weird and silly become profound with new thrilling and dangerous stunts that dare you to look away.

Featuring award-winning circus and sideshow artists: Themme Fatale, Elle Diablo, Sarah Birdgirl, Dale Woodbridge-Brown, Bella de Jac, and Bubbles the ferret. Get ready for a thrilling journey of sex, danger, and fear (that only a text from Centrelink inspires).

This show takes a look at how circus and sideshow has long exploited marginalised performers, and in this show they take back the power to create the show they want to make.

Le Freak has it all: sideshow, swords, stilettos, sequins and the circus reimagined.
