This summer as fires raged through Gippsland, homes were burnt, native flora and fauna destroyed, and livelihoods torn apart, a bunch of cabaret stars made the call.
We’ll give a Phoenix to Gippsland for Christmas.

Before the embers died out we rang Bruthen Arts & Culture, a finer bunch of folk you’ll never meet, & we offered them a show, no two shows, no a whole weekend of fun engagement. There were tears on both ends of the line. Then COVID-19 hit, & they said of course you can’t come now. We said we’re coming!

THEN ACF BOOST STEPPED UP MATCHING $ FOR $.

This weekend shindig is free, for the whole area. A whole weekend of Christmas fun. Finucane & Smith’s red hot Dance Hall, with cabaret queen Moira Finucane leading a shindig like no other. Yumi Umiumare’s globally acclaimed pop up tea shop will serve all, Maude Davey’s fortune telling salon, Paul Cordeiro’s dance workshops, and there’ll be a Christmas market, a BBQ, local guests, dancing, laughing, and singing.

A FREE PARTY FOR GIPPSLAND.

But we need your help to get us there.

The communities hit by fires have now been hit by COVID-19. Everything’s cancelled, no one is visiting. The empty eskies are still empty.

It’s a triple whammy, and they need our help more than ever.

Now, EVERY DOLLAR YOU CONTRIBUTE WILL BE MATCHED! Through the generosity of Creative Partnerships Australia’s ACF Boost, up to $4,880.

You’ll be providing the best Christmas present ever. People will come from everywhere, hey you can even come yourself, and stock up on local goodies! Every penny is tax deductible. And you’ll be helping stellar independent artists who’ve also lost a lot lately.

Support a Phoenix today!

BUT HURRY! WE ONLY HAVE TILL MAY 31st!

Every penny will be used to get some of Australia’s finest cabaret divas to Gippsland.
Every penny will be matched by ACF Boost, up to $4880.
And every penny will help pay for the tour, AND you’ll be supporting artists who’ve seen every gig cancelled but are still 100% committed to helping the communities of Gippsland!

Christmas will come early this year with your help.
What a stocking filler!
Buy a Phoenix for Gippsland for Christmas!

“Bruthen and our surrounding communities fell in love with this mob when they brought us Caravan Burlesque in 2012, and Dance Hall in 2018. The mind-blowing madness, the hilarity and the simply amazing performances left us all grinning from ear to ear for weeks afterward. We are dying to see them back in Bruthen!
Our community needs this more than ever now; the terrible fire season’s had an impact on everyone in East Gippsland. Please help to make this happen. If you can, please make a donation to help get them back to Bruthen.”

My practice originated in the celebration of dance and cultural expression, and over 20 years I’ve developed a highly respected producing practice of diverse aesthetics, cross-cultural exchange & collaboration.

Kath Papas Productions engages diverse artists, collectives & companies – whose work intersects with the burning issues of representation, gender, sexuality, spirituality, extinction and climate.

My practice springs from our role and geographic location within the Asia Pacific. I have taken Victorian artists & collaborations to Korea, Japan, China, Malaysia, Indonesia and South America. My work with independent artists and companies includes Yumi Umiumare, Sandra Fiona Long & Mainteater, Kate Hunter, & acclaimed indies Finucane & Smith Unlimited. With F&S, for over a decade, I have worked across all aspects in the company’s work addressing freedom, hope, humanity, justice & environment. Recent highlights include Finucane’s award-winning The Rapture: Art vs Extinction series (Berlin, Prague Quadrennial, Denmark, USA, Slovenia), Dance Hall & Exotic Lives of Lola Montez.
