ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE COMPANY.
In the past 24 hours members of our company have been exposed to suspected positive COVID cases. We have had safety policies in place which we have been strictly adhering to all season, so this has come as a bit of a shock to us. We can’t risk coming to Brisbane today, especially with the growing case numbers in Victoria and the explosive nature of this outbreak.
This is heartbreaking for us. As a company we have been in a bubble since Christmas to ensure that we can keep our cast, crew and audiences safe and to ensure that we can continue to create art and transport people to a magical world where they can escape the stress of the current world we live in. And we have succeeded in doing this here in Melbourne with 5 incredible shows and standing ovations every night!
Brisbane audiences, we hope you can understand how difficult this decision was for us to make. Our bags were packed, we were meant to be on a plane this morning, and our set was already halfway to Brisbane when we found out… so we’ve had to prioritise your safety as well as that of our cast and crew and postpone our season. We are working with the venue to find another date this year. We WILL come to The Princess Theatre, and you will experience the magic that is Oracle.
As soon as new dates have been locked in, your tickets will be automatically transferred to the corresponding day within the new season dates. Please hold on to your tickets… audience members who came to see the Melbourne premiere will tell you it is worth the wait.
Until then, stay safe and stay tuned for new dates in the coming days.
Sending love and light,
The Bass Fam Creative ORACLE family
The team at Bass Fam Creative have crafted yet another feast for the senses, with something in ORACLE for those who dare to dream!
From the creative team behind the award-winning MATADOR and the critically acclaimed MANSION, comes a fusion of circus, burlesque, dance & contemporary storytelling: ORACLE – and it is one for the gods! At the newly opened Princess Theatre 13 to 16th January 2022.
Since the beginning of time, humankind, gods and goddesses alike, have all looked up to the stars in an attempt to draw meaning from the Universe. In doing so, prophecies, myths and tales have been told; tales of monsters, mermaids and other mythical creatures. Of powerful goddesses, and vengeful gods, of heroes and beautiful maidens. Tales of a decadent time, of love and lust, of bravery and sacrifice. Tales and legends that birthed the star constellations of the Zodiac signs we know today.
Delivering these prophecies and myths, a maiden – a warrior, a saviour and an empath, a beauty robbed of sight but blessed with vision. The voice of the gods, the light in the dark. She is ORACLE.
Let ORACLE and her haunting, powerhouse vocals guide you through the 12 zodiac myths, explored thematically through live vocals, world class circus acts, mesmerizing aerials, steamy burlesque numbers, interlaced with ballet, contemporary and commercial dance.
With a diverse, talented and let’s face it downright attractive cast of 18 performers, ORACLE brings you elite specialty acts and choreography, set to an epic soundtrack of classic anthems, hit songs, ballads, covers and cinematic masterpieces. The handmade costumes, providing an injection of high fashion into the mix, pay homage to some of the biggest names of the fashion world.
ORACLE creator Bass Fam said, “It is nothing short of a miracle that we have reached this point. This show was set to be performed in July/August 2020 but we had to cancel due to the pandemic. We had to recast and re-audition and find a new venue. And then cancel & postpone auditions due to lockdowns – it has been quite the journey. Now we have a stunning cast of 18 performers from all around Australia, performing tales of zodiac mythology that have inspired me from a young age.”
The stars have definitely aligned! Don’t miss ORACLE this January.
