Brisbane Festival – Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fashion Freak Show

Gala Opening Night – Friday 30 August 2024

PARIS – LONDON – MILAN – LISBON – OSAKA – BRISBANE

Jean Paul Gaultier is set to shake up Australian audiences when his stunning creation, Fashion Freak Show — fifty years of pop culture through the eyes of fashion’s enfant terrible — takes up residence as a sensational centrepiece to this year’s Festival. An explosive combination of musical revue and fashion show, the production depicts the sensational life of Jean Paul Gaultier against a backdrop of his generation’s most defining political and cultural changes.

An Australian exclusive season, this extraordinary cast of actors, dancers and circus artists take to the stage and play outlandish, passionate, larger-than-life, rude, sexy, sassy creatures and personalities in a world filled with excess, poetry and magic. Fresh from sellout seasons in Europe, it’s now Brisbane’s turn to bear witness to this Australian exclusive season.

This project is supported through the Giving Program by Courtney Talbot’s JPG Syndicate. Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fashion Freak Show is presented by Brisbane Festival in association with TS3 (A Fimalac Entertainment Company), RGM Productions, TEQ and Avex Entertainment.

Season Run – 31 August to 16 September 2024.
