Cabaret show to kick-start NAIDOC Week

Black Magic

Barang Regional Alliance and Naughty Noodle Fun Haus will team up on July 2 to present the annual 1st Nations Australians Contemporary Cabaret, NAIDOC Nylon, to kick start NAIDOC Week 2022 on the Central Coast.

NAIDOC Nylon sold out and brought the haus down the first time around.

Then COVID hit and the show went into recess – but it’s back this year and Naughty Noodle and Barang want everyone to enjoy the stereotype busting line-up of Faboriginal + Torres Strait Islander entertainers.

Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! is this year’s theme, encouraging all Australians to champion institutional, structural, collaborative, and cooperative change while celebrating those who have already driven and led change in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities over generations.

This new variety cabaret will explore stories, creativity and ideas in bold new ways from performance art to live music, burlesque to drag.

The Central Coast has the fastest growing Aboriginal population in Australia and this year’s showcase is heavily focused on shining the spotlight on creative contemporary local talent including singer songwriter Corrie Hodson, award winning published poet Brooke Scobie and drag queens Diva D-Lish and Khandii Kum Loudly.

For the first time, Black Magic, a dance trio who are NAISDA students and are inspired by the black girl power movement of the ‘90s will be on stage.

Chel Torres

Felicia Foxx, named by SBS and NITV as among the top 20 Indigenous people to look out for and leader of the 40th and 41st Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parades, as well as Chel Torres will also appear, with host for the show Gadigal elder, Nana Miss Koori.

Mandatory dress code for the evening is  red, black and gold glamour.

The show will be at the Naughty Noodle Fun Haus, Ettalong, on Saturday, July 2, with doors opening at 6.30pm and showtime 8-10pm.
