Splore is celebrating their 20th birthday and to do so, they’re putting on a killer fest. Emma Vickers, Splore’s Performance Director, puts it rather succinctly “We are celebrating everything! Our mantra is “Nothing is impossible!”. Each year performance at Splore grows and we are very proud to have developed the performing arts from small beginnings to a world class multi-disciplinary show on its 20th year”

Headlining Splore is Chris Oh!, an ex-shy Kiwi who has redefined himself with his sultry moves and perky bottom. This acclaimed burlesque performer has won accolades worldwide and leaves women and men breathless—and a tad confused—with his act.

The dedicated performance zone, the Living Lounge, will be a showcase of skill and talent. Over the weekend the Living Lounge will be invaded by dancers, tricksters, aerialists, and loopers and soaked in comedy, burlesque, and just general tomfoolery.

On Saturday night, the Living Lounge turns into “Club Hedonista,” which celebrates the fabulousness and eccentricities of Splore and the theory of Hedonism, “pleasure—the satisfaction of desires—is the highest good and proper aim of human life.”

Tickets have unfortunately sold out.
