About This Festival

‘an exquisite hour of cabaret’ - The Plus Ones

Black-humoured, visually opulent, and dripping with satire, this cabaret will tempt your sweet tooth and traumatize your funny bone.

Direct from its world premiere season at the Melba Spiegeltent, Melbourne, Anya Anastasia is accompanied by Bec Matthews (Circus OZ, Yana Alana) on percussion to present an electrifying live performance.

We witness Anya’s transformation through exaggerated iconic archetypes in the feminine form, deftly evolving through characters from Marie Antoinette to a feisty she-devil. The show explores decadence, pleasure, hedonism and sardonically unfolding reflections upon potential earthly consequences.

Though dripping with satire, TORTE E MORT
 unashamedly celebrates all these extremes of the
psyche and humanity.

Anya Anastasia has performed her original shows in Prague, Berlin, and around Australia and New Zealand to rave reviews, and inspires a cult-like following.

‘You should know this if you didn’t already: Anya Anastasia is a major, major talent.’ - Stage Whispers 2015

Anya’s latest show has been directed by two iconic mainstays of Australian performing arts scene, Helpmann and multi- Green Room award-winning performer Sarah Ward (Yana Alana), and devisor of circus, Sue Broadway.
