Moira Finucane y Jackie Smith's biography | au Australia


Named “national treasures” in their home country of Australia, the house of Finucane& Smith creates legendary salons, intimate theatrical spectacles and provocative variety; hijacking myriad art forms, engaging unique and extraordinary artists and pecking the eyes out of old-style entertainment genres to create indelible visions of liberation, humanity, power and desire. Acclaimed in ten languages, winning 8 Green Room Awards and the Patrick White Playwright Award, Finucane& Smith are driven by the artistic frisson of playwright and director Jackie Smith and volcanic live artist, magic realist and creator Moira Finucane, with a stable of artists drawn from around the world – from singers to circus sirens, butoh to ballet dancers, live artists to performance provocateurs – whose only commonality is their unique edge, their love of the audience and the thrill of the human. Finucane& Smith’s genre-defying “Glory Box” fuses demi-monde nightclub with jaw-dropping cabaret, insolent and exotic live art, circus and sideshow, butohand disco, grand guignoland backroom ballet in a seductive spectacle.
