DASH BARES ALL FOR CABARET….. So we are told!
Dash Kruck talks with Damien Lee about his return to Brisbane with his one-man show I Might Take My Shirt Off for Cabaret @ the Cremorne as part of QLD Cabaret Festival. The show premiered at MELT Festival earlier this year at the Brisbane Powerhouse to sell-out audiences and rave reviews. He plays Lionel, a shy accounts clerk for a medium–sized flooring company who is struggling to deal with the recent break up with his long-term boyfriend.
As a result, he has started seeing a terrifying German therapist that has encouraged him to express himself through the art of cabaret – the only problem is that he doesn’t really know what that is. Lionel draws on his limited knowledge of the style and formidable Wikipedia skills to hilariously stumble his way through his hour on stage. After covering sex, booze, boys and mythical beasts he finds that maybe he's not so bad at expressing himself after all. It’s Lionel’s first time. You promise to be gentle, right?
Dash is a Queensland Theatre favourite having won the Matilda Award for Best Actor for QTC’s A Tribute of Sorts in 2012 that he co-wrote and he has also just finished playing the lead role in QTC’s Brisbane. He has performed extensively with QTC, La Boite, Harvest Rain, Gold Coast Arts Centre and Oscar Theatre Company and this is his first cabaret.
