Four performers are draped over an outdoor seating bank in an oval. The sky above them is overcast. Each performer is heavily laden in costumes of layered fabrics, soft toys, tulle etc. Their body shapes are dwarved and faces obscured by the strange costumes and extravagant hats.

Fart Fabulous

Fat Fruit

Farts happen!

Fart Fabulous is a farty party for the whole family. Brought to you by the ensemble behind the hit variety show Fu*k Fabulous, this playful, punk, variety show is bursting at the seams with world class circus, drag, dance, visual art and live music. If Fu*k Fabulous is the queer club at 2am, Fart Fabulous is the all ages extravaganza.

This multi-generational bonanza fit for grands and grandkids alike, offers a bold vision of a queer new world that embraces difference in all its messy glory. The all-star cast are there to remind audiences again and again, that bodies have folds, bodies make noises, bodies come in all sizes, shapes and genders, all of them are valid, and all of them fart.

Fart Fabulous is one jam-packed hour of queer celebration, rebellious performance, hilarity, anarchy and hope. It’s a ripper, it’s a buster, it’s a blast!

Project Partners & Acknowledgements

Fart Fabulous is produced by Performing Lines, and supported by RISING. A preview performance was originally presented with The Flying Fruit Fly Circus as a part of Borderville Circus Festival.

The Fart Fabulous ensemble acknowledges and respects all LGBTIQ+ elders and communities who have forged a path for us to be here. Especially to those who fought for their right to be fabulous. Fart Fabulous celebrates those queers who are not visible, those who were never invited to the party and those who were, but either couldn’t get into the venue or chose to stay at home.

Fat Fruit acknowledges Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognises their continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and to Elders both past and present.

In everything we do, we acknowledge that we live on Aboriginal land and constantly learn from the wisdom of First Peoples.

Where we are and the history that precedes us informs how we work and how we move forward.
