4–5 February 2022

The Tiger is known as the King of all animals for a reason; brave, banisher of evil, an all round bad*ss. And what better way to call in the Year of the Tiger with this fearless ode to Asian Excellence. The Monkey King Themselves, Charlie Chapstik/Daddy Charles, is here to bring another expectation subverting Variety show. Hot on the heels of their sell out Mama Complex Cabaret, The Monkey King cabaret is here to demolish archaic stereotypes and representation of Asian culture. So often, representation of Asian culture in media is one dimensional, catered to a western taste and “orientalised” for theatrical effect. This show is not here to be palatable or performative; it is simply a joyous gathering of talented human beings, sharing their stories and their art. A celebration of culture, the Lunar New year and the multifaceted kaleidoscope of Asian identifying artists in CBR and beyond, Beneath the Tiger Moon is nothing less than unapologetic toast to brilliance. Join us for our inaugural showcase; two nights of drag, burlesque, classical Chinese dance, Lion Dance, song, boylesque, dance, a martial arts display, poetry, storytelling, visual art. After this jam packed show, join us in civic square for a truly incredible performance to begin your Lunar New Year the right way. Courtyard Studio is wheelchair accessible, this event AUSLAN interpreted and we are happy to help with any and all access enquiries. Please contact charliewanproduction@gmail.com if you have any further questions. Above all else, all Charlie Wan productions are a safe and inclusive space. We are a haven for QTPOC, friends & allies. Please join us for an event filled with love and leave all disrespect at the door. The Monkey King Cabaret will be held on Ngunnawal land. We would like to acknowledge the Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of this land that we come together to dance, sing and love on and pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging. Always was, always will be, aboriginal land.
