Porcelain Productions presents:

Where performance art, gothic subculture, surrealism and experimentation come to play.

Disclaimer: This is NOT the Moulin Rouge!

The Burlesk of The Surreal provides an inclusive and safe space for local and interstate emerging, established and well known performers to bring their strange and unusual desires and ideas to the stage for our weird and wonderful audience!

It is a place to celebrate our differences and let our freak flags fly!

These performers will help you expand your idea of idea of sexy, while pushing the boundaries of burlesque with their uniquely creative, sometimes dark, sometimes experimental, often hilarious and always unusual performance art!
