Renowned and respected Brisbane based Choreographer, Theatre Director and Dance Teacher Jacqui Carroll is bringing A Salon of Larrikins to QPAC this January, with four performances at the Cremorne Theatre.

A Salon of Larrikins brings together an inter-generational cast in a vaudevillian farce to explore the history of the Cremorne Theatre. The new Cremorne has recently undergone a face-lift and this production will provide an opportunity to celebrate the history of the South Bank area, drawing on the stories of the area and former theatre which was a variety house featuring local acts and talents.

The audience will have the opportunity to see independent artists at all stages in their careers creating and collaborating. The dancers represent senior, mid-career and emerging artists and this collaboration represents cross art form collaboration of music, dance and theatre. This inventive and versatile cast will be joined onstage by musicians from Camerata, Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra, who are delighted to be part of this project. “At Camerata, we believe in supporting opportunities for the independent sector to intersect with the ensemble and this project addresses this desire, as well as encouraging our senior Brisbane artists to continue to create work of relevance and have a voice contributing to the shape of our community,” said Camerata’s Executive Director, Adam Tucker.
