The Street Theatre are putting on a show, as the Street Theatre often does.

Bijou a Cabaret of Secrets and Madness will feature music, political anthems, nursery rhymes, dance, and also romance.

Sounds pretty wonderful really.

In a Parisian café bar in 1932 we meet Bijou. She is one of the night people, captured in Brassai’s revealing photographs of depression era Paris. Frayed at the edges, they recall the glory days of the Belle Epoque, the mad excitement of the 1920s, as they drink, sing and scratch for survival while the world moves inexorably towards another world war.

Bijou is assisted by the The Street Theatre’s Hive and Made In Canberra programs.

Bijou’s Creative Development and premiere season were supported by the ACT Government’s Arts Funding program.

Thursday 29th August – Saturday 7th September @ 7:30pm
Sunday 1st and 8th September @ 4pm
