Moira Finucane, one of the world's greatest performance chameleons, hailed as "transcendent" by audiences across 5 continents and described by critics as "exquisite", "the volcanic physical presence", "mesmerising", and in Australia as a “national treasure”, creates a transcendent solo world ; a performance visitation from lands only glimpsed in dreams.
ABOUT FINUCANE & SMITH
The Australian art-house of Finucane & Smith Unlimited has become internationally famous for Exquisite Theatrical Spectacles that hijack cabaret & high art, burlesque & drama, dance & the literary, circus & sideshow; engage unique & extraordinary artists; smash boundaries between high & low art, populist & exclusive, outsider & heritage, to meld indelible visions of humanity.
From Provocative Variety to Literary Salons, Surreal Indoor Carnivals and full length dramas, epic solo works of Gothic Rapture & sumptuous feasts in magic realist Cantinas, Finucane & Smith are passionate artists and arts-workers - the exquisite, the unique, the outsider, the delicate: artists that are transcendent and seek a better humanity. Led by environmental scientist, human rights practitioner turned performer/creator Moira Finucane & remote country dreamer turned playwright/creator Jackie Smith, we create theatrical & performance rapture – the physical, emotional spiritual visceral transportation of people and culture.
Finucane & Smith collaborate with incendiary companies and artists around the world; working in national galleries and amusement parks, in the desert under the sky, in grand old theatres and antique musical halls, mixing artists, audiences and artforms in unexpected and powerful cocktails, they create worlds “so beautiful it hurts to leave them”; their work is infecting – moving, visceral, mystical, funny, dark and joyous.
