The Big Tease Soirée showcases some of the best Australian and international burlesque performers. See them strut their glamorous stuff across our stages, bump’n’grind across the dance floor and tease their way into your hearts.

The Big Tease Soirée celebrates the golden era of vintage tease, sizzling cabaret and variety entertainment.

Don’t miss a glamorous night of elegant classic tease and alluring modern burlesque that will dazzle, delight and stimulate the senses!

We acknowledge this event will take place on Larrakia land.

About the Venue
Opened by the Administrator of the Northern Territory in 1986 ‘on behalf of the people of Darwin’, the Darwin Entertainment Centre is the premier entertainment and convention venue in the Top End of Australia. Located in the heart of the city in the Mitchell Street entertainment district, the Centre is close to all amenities and easy to access.

The Centre can accommodate almost any kind of performance or event, large or small, and has played host to major national and international acts as well as Darwin-based artists, local Eisteddfod competitions, and school concerts.

Facilities include the Playhouse, a large, traditional proscenium arch theatre seating approximately 1000, and the smaller, more intimate, Studio Theatre which seats 290 in theatre mode, or 200 in cabaret configuration. There is also an Exhibition Gallery and Rehearsal Room. Access for the physically disabled and audio enhancement facilities in both theatres ensure that the Centre remains accessible to all.
