Inappropriate Nudity, Underwater Halloween, Little Egypt’s Speakeasy & Cirque du Soleil on Arts Monday
Today’s guests: Lucian McGuiness, Samuel Hilton, Harley Oliver, and Alevtyna Titarenko.
My first guest: Creator and Musical Director, Lucian McGuiness discusses Little Egypt’s Speakeasy – a live rhythm and blues burlesque concert drama, which tells the tale of exotic dancer, Little Egypt, and her infamous club in 1950’s USA. With a cast of Sydney’s hottest performers, Little Egypt’s Speakeasy is comedic narration, dance and burlesque, and rhythm and blues in a completely transformed Django Bar that puts the audience straight inside 1950s America and Little Egypt’s Club. Grand Moustache’s production of Little Egypt’s Speakeasy has evolved from its smash hit show Little Egypt’s Burlesque.

My next guest: Artist, Harley Oliver chats about ‘Inappropriate Nudity’ an exhibition which challenges expectations, exploring nudity in unexpected situations.
“I’m interested in what happens when the nude is painted slightly out of its usual context. The nude becomes naked.”
Harley’s collection includes provocative and striking paintings of today’s celebrities, early explorers, 1930’s beach-goers, and the Queen of England.

TOTEM is a fascinating journey into the evolution of mankind -traces humankind`s incredible journey – from our original amphibian state to our ultimate quest for flight. Along the way, it also explores our dreams and infinite potential, and the ties that bind us both to our collective animal origins and to the species that share the planet with us.
