Princess Theatre, Woolloongabba
Since the beginning of time, humankind, gods and goddesses alike, have all looked up to the stars in an attempt to draw meaning from the Universe. In doing so, prophecies, myths and tales have been told; tales of monsters, mermaids and other mythical creatures. Of powerful goddesses, and vengeful gods, of heroes and beautiful maidens. Tales of a decadent time, of love and lust, of bravery and sacrifice. Tales and legends that birthed the star constellations of the Zodiac signs we know today.
A fusion of circus, burlesque, dance & contemporary storytelling, ORACLE and her haunting, powerhouse vocals guide you through the 12 zodiac myths, explored thematically through live vocals, world class circus acts, mesmerizing aerials, steamy burlesque numbers, interlaced with ballet, contemporary and commercial dance.
A cast of 18 performers will deliver elite specialty acts and choreography, set to a soundtrack of classic anthems, hit songs, ballads, covers and cinematic masterpieces. The handmade costumes, providing an injection of high fashion into the mix, pay homage to some of the biggest names of the fashion world.
ORACLE creator Bass Fam said, “It is nothing short of a miracle that we have reached this point. This show was set to be performed in July/August 2020 but we had to cancel due to the pandemic. We had to recast and re-audition and find a new venue. And then cancel & postpone auditions due to lockdowns – it has been quite the journey. Now we have a stunning cast of 18 performers from all around Australia, performing tales of zodiac mythology that have inspired me from a young age.”
