Quippings Risky Business Show

The Quippings troupe is unleashing Risky Business. Risky Business is a cabaret game show featuring songs, tattoos, menstrual blood, secrets and tango! This show is for International Day of People with Disability and we are reclaiming this day as ours!

There will be no DisabiliTea, no charity, no pity; instead, expect fierce and funny and defiant. Kath Duncan, Risky Business' producer and Quippings' cofounder, said, "This is our riskiest show yet! Our biggest cast and our wildest ideas break out all over the Spiegeltent stage." 

  • Friday 1 December 2017 at 7:00pm, Melba Spiegeltent
  • Circus Oz Home, 35 Johnston Street, Collingwood, Victoria 3066

Risky Business' director is Suze Smith a director, theatre maker, and movement researcher. She's an independent artist and Project Manager at VCA.

Established in 2010, Quippings’ work centres on the lived experiences of Deaf and disabled embodiment and all works are written and performed by the artists themselves. Quippings operates from within the social model of disability.
