By popular demand, Petrasexual is back this November at The Butterfly Club.
A cabaret that evokes discussion about sex, in a venue at the end of a Melbourne laneway with its cocktail bar full of conversation-starting kitsch. The pairing of venue and performance is a perfect adventure for those on a first date, or wanting a memorable night out with friends. And for those visiting Melbourne for the Spring Racing Carnival, it’s also a great opportunity to get a taste of what the Melbourne arts scene has to offer.
Petrasexual, part of The Butterfly Club 2016 Curated Spring Season, examines a society which often has a narrow definition of sexuality, gender and ‘acceptable behaviour’. Through a hilarious and emotive narrative, Petra reflects on her own less-than-romantic experiences that led to an understanding that everyone’s got their something. At times raw and emotive, it’s also a clever and funny perspective on society that leaves you with a sense of empowerment and pride in your sexuality.
With soulful piano by Adam Rudegeair (The Bowie Project, Lake Minnetonka), who has provided musical direction in both seasons, Petrasexual now welcomes Ben Christensen (Frankie Wants Out, The Bird Conference) to the trio on double bass.
Paired with a bespoke cocktail inspired by the show and crafted by The Butterfly Club’s incredible team, Petrasexual is a smart, sexy and sensational night out for one, two, three or more … there’s no judgement here.
Show contains brief, partial nudity, and a little bit of blue language.
