I attended the lauch of Risqué Revue at Slide, Darlinghurst last Thursday with a spectacular display of aerial artistry and showgirl glamour, transporting Sydney guests to Paris for the night.
Slide hosted a lavish cocktail party on Thursday 10th March to launch a new season of its renowned production Risqué Revue - a multi-act theatrical experience that pays homage to famous European cabarets like the glittering Moulin Rouge.
Turning on the glamour of the cabaret, Slide on Sydney’s famous Oxford St, is a dazzling art deco sanctuary where guests mingled and partied to the theme of ‘Paris Chic’.
Guests including the cast of hit TV show Here Come The Habibs, socialite Monika Tu, and Adam Williams who sipped cocktails and sampled canapes on the private mezzanine area.
I was part of the mezzanine level and it was enjoyable to have cocktails and canapes prior to watching the show, and the drinks were flowing during the show too.
The opening night performance of the European style cabaret captivated the audience with seductive semi-nude acts of both genders, and a dazzling array of performances.
Now entering its third year, Risqué Revue is one of Slide’s flagship production shows. Set in the heart of Paris, the acclaimed production features beautiful choreography by Sydney Dance Company’s James Taylor, magnificent aerial routines, live vocals, exquisite costuming, and an infamous bathtub aerial act.
