Trixie wrote and co-starred in four immersive circus-cabaret shows designed to tour Australian festivals, which all feature magical and luminous SPIEGELTENTS! Trixie’s love of circus history made these venues particularly special, as they are each unique, vintage, Belgian-made circus tents built from the late 19th until the early 20th century. They are the jewels in the crown at every Fringe Festival Down Under. The tents are built with wood, stained glass, mirrors and brass; creating an enchanted carousel feeling that is completely intoxicating! From 2012-2016 these shows also earned 3 nominations for Best Cabaret at Fringe World Festival in Perth and 2 nominations in Adelaide.
2012 FLIPPING + STRIPPING
Trixie and Monkey’s first hour long variety show featuring their best material including Total Eclipse, Gypsy Little- the Sexual Psychic, Kama Sutra and the early debut of Trixie’s Banana Peel. Premiered at the Harvest Music Festival and went on to Perth and Adelaide.
2013 VELVET BANANA
A more polished presentation of Flipping and Stripping that also went home to a month long run on Fridays at Slipper Room soon after its grand re-opening after renovation.
2014 BOTTOMS UP
An actual circus theme for the two circus rebels! Audience participation antics included Monkey mixing a martini in this g-string and pouring it down his butt crack into an audience member’s mouth, and multiple chances for them to spank the monkey. Also included Trixie’s flea circus featuring Dita Von Fleas, a flea trained to splash around in a martini glass.
2015 THE TIME IS RIPE
Featuring Trixie and Monkey’s foot balancing fan dance as a bride and groom and Space Monkey with messy and wild audience participation throughout, the show was loosely constructed as a wedding and reception. Nominated for Best Cabaret Show at Perth and Adelaide Fringe Festival.
