Hot on the (high) heels of last year’s silly season smash hit, the world’s hottest all-male boylesque stars BRIEFS are headed back to Q with a brand new show that promises galactic glamour, astro-athleticism, and interstellar aerials!

Formed in 2008, BRIEFS transitioned from a late-night club act to an acclaimed performance ensemble and has been glitter bombing the globe ever since, with sell-out shows in London, Berlin, Paris, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide.

The company’s new show, Close Encounters, promises ‘dizzying thrills that are out of this world’ with a rocket-fuel blend of dancing, tumbling, juggling, acro-balancing, trapeze, hula hooping, lip-syncing, sequins, feathers and frocks.

Q has your end of year knees-up sorted with deliciously naughty cocktails, luxury briefs-wearing ice-creams, and especially themed canapes ready to be devoured while you delight in the on-stage antics.

So grab your gals, your pals, your workmates (heck anyone!), get your party shoes on and shimmy your way to Q for a fabulously entertaining night of hilarity and athleticism infused with glitz, magic and the odd hoola hoop.

In the words of Time Out London’s discerning editors, “no one else does enormous, gloriously perverted fun quite like this.” In the words of Shivannah herself, “don’t be jealoussssssss”, get your tickets now.
