VERNON, BC— With more glitter stains and ballsy attitude than ever before, Australia’s drag sensation Briefs Factory brings their hot new show, Dirty Laundry, to the Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre on June 3, 2023, at 7:30PM. The 2022-23 SPOTLIGHT Special Presentation Series will come to a close with one of the biggest spectacles of the year.

After ten years of selling out festivals worldwide, the Briefs boys make their Okanagan debut with Dirty Laundry, a glitzy party cabaret that cannot be missed! Led by co-founder Fez Faanana, aka Shivanana, the Briefs misfits give you a night of astounding circus skills, gob-smacking comedy, unapologetic truths, and ridiculous showmanship. Each artist leads their own signature act, from a bubbly burlesque routine with soap suds to a wildly athletic aerial dance number with miles of leather.

Briefs Factory has received rave reviews around the world. Out in Perth called Dirty Laundry “hilarious, jaw-dropping and heartfelt” (five stars). FRINGEWORLD named it “the perfect blend of flesh, acrobats, dance, ‘boylesque’ and brilliance.”

“This will be a night to remember!” said Artistic Director Erin Kennedy. “Expect high energy, sky-high stunts, and screaming laughter – this show is a party from start to finish!”

The Performing Arts Centre theatre will be transformed for the event with a catwalk thrust out into the audience. VDPAC’s servers will also be mixing up feature mocktails and cocktails with local libations from Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery.

Briefs Factory is an Australian creative collective who manufacture, cultivate and present evocative, irreverent, physical performances. Best known for their flagship project Briefs, the company’s work also includes Hot Brown Honey, Club Briefs, Brat Kids Carnival and Slumber Party. Inspired by circus, drag, dance, burlesque, music, comedy and the ever-changing world around them, Briefs Factory is dedicated to developing and touring their brand of award winning, genre-defying, political party punk around the world.
