Earlier this month, Reunion Park landed on the Burnley Circus Site. This outdoor, pop-up space celebrates Melbourne’s thriving culture scene, and has delivered some amazing live music shows. Now, they’ve released a full comedy and performing arts program, so you can get your laughs on during the comedy festival season. Expect cabaret, circus, burlesque and more, from Thursday March 31 to Sunday April 10.
As part of Melbourne International Comedy Festival, these shows will complement Reunion Park’s current music program. Here what you can expect:
Enjoy an evening of drag, burlesque and circus that you’ll never forget at Blunderland. This show was a staple of New York’s underground queer nightlife scene, and are now in Melbourne ready to get arthouse-weird and outrageously naughty.
Enjoy vintage aesthetics without suffering from vintage values at Cab Suave. This show is all about queer representation, venue accessibility and fun for all. Feel transported back in time at this film noir circus show, as Dick Johnson investigates Cabaret Suave. This story features a fabulous queer cast, and one token straight white man.

Splash Test Dummies
Feel surprised and delighted by these world-class circus artists. Roll out your beach towel and get ready for laughs, as you watch the Dummies perform thrilling stuntwork, dexterous juggling, slapstick comedy and more.
