Broad Encounters today announced the remarkable multi-disciplinary cast of the brand new immersive
theatrical epic Love Lust Lost ahead of its first preview next week on 8 September 2023 at The Austral, Collingwood.
Trained in aerial acrobatics, circus, physical theatre, music, ballet, contemporary dance, theatre and improvisational comedy, the eight-strong cast will showcase their diverse skills in an intoxicating new 360-degree sensory experience that places the audience at the centre of the action.
Leading the interactive journey is Sandro Colarelli as the charismatic Captain Anderson, fresh from his role as Tony Goochera in Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis. Cabaret artiste Meg Hickey joins him as Salacia along side internationally acclaimed aerialist Bri Emrich as the Captain’s daughter, Sandy.
Skilled musician Chloe Towan plays Sandy’s confidant, Claude, physical theatre specialist Sho Eba plays the mischievous Trink, interdisciplinary performance artist Kristian Santic plays The Chef who knows too much, contemporary dancer Jeremy Lloyd plasy Chan, the Narcissist, and hip-hop and street dancer Callum Mooney plays the mystical Sea Creature.
Love Lust Lost creator, producer and co-writer Kirsten Siddle shared her excitement to have found such a uniquely accomplished and multi-talented cast to realise her ambitious vision:
This show is bigger and more demanding than anything we have attempted before, so I’m ecstatic to have found such an incredible cast of performers, each with such wealth of experience that is both specialist and spans so many art forms. I’m really in awe of what they bring to this show, and I love that we can showcase so much of it in this epic production. Each day of rehearsals just gets more and more exciting.
Following on from the success of underground gothic hit A Midnight Visit, which attracted more than 67,000 people throughout Australia and ran for an impressive 16 weeks in Melbourne, Love Lust Lost tears up the rule book of conventional theatre and delivers a whole new world to explore in a performance that melds music, spoken word, dance, circus, soundscapes, scent and spectacle to dazzling effect.
A mix of circus and cabaret, performance art and storytelling all lie ready to be unearthed.
Venue: The Austral, 200-202 Johnston St, Collingwood
