DANGEROUS GOODS is an unapologetic and hot-as-hell cabaret of provocative performances, jaw-dropping physical feats, and powerful acts of rebellion.
Featuring a world class lineup of circus, aerials, drag, burlesque and power vocals, iconic performance renegades Polytoxic bring you an unforgettable evening of high-octane entertainment that is fully-loaded and flammable AF.
Polytoxic has a long history of making work that starts with a party and ends with a call to arms. DANGEROUS GOODS is about lighting up ‘dangerous’ ideas – such as self-determination, gender politics, cultural inclusivity, diversity – and exploding them within a cabaret world of satire and humour, female strength and body sovereignty.
Polytoxic will do what we do best! Give audiences a highly entertaining, hilarious night out, alongside some delicious, thought provoking conversations for audiences to take with them as they leave.
This is cabaret for the brave new world, with a crew of diverse, multi-talented, super-powered femmes ready to blow minds and shift paradigms.
Handle with care… or ya might get burned.
