It might seem like the Polytoxic crew are pretty quiet but the opposite is true! The Polytoxic team is made up of independant artists so keep an eye out for all the works each of the Polytoxic crew are in! Checkout Natano Faanana in Casus circus, or Fez and Mark jettsetting around with Briefs, Lisa on her sweet ride with Hot Brown Honey and Leah setting up shop in the U.K. with Terror Australis! And keep posted for when this killa team gets in the same room again! #polytoxic #aiga

<3 <3 love this from Liquid Interactive on their experience of The BackUp Service!!

"... we spent the rest of the night focusing on the ancient art of lip-syncing.

Brisbane-based dance troupe Polytoxic brought their backup service for the night: six classic songs, three hot backup dancers, a trunkful of costumes and enough champagne to get everyone stage-ready.

We had appearances from a prematurely-intoxicated Robert Palmer, a jubilant male Dolly Parton, a Tina Turner who left nothing on stage except his/her sweat, an almost hypnotically sexual Vanilla Ice, a Weather Girls act that should have been called Inflating Men, and finally Meat Loaf and Bonnie Tyler in some kind of Ziggy Stardust conceptual art version of Total Eclipse of the Heart."

BRISBANE. Get earlybird tix to Leah Shelton's Terror Australis at BRISBANE POWERHOUSE - use code word ROADKILL for $20 tix!

Come hitchhike with the psycho siren.
#freegoon

Brisbane’s own psycho-siren Leah Shelton returns with her award-winning show, Terror Australis.

This f**ked-up outback contiki tour is a frothing hot mess of black comedy, anti-burlesque and hills-hoist pole dance. Trapped inside a sweltering pulp film mash-up, Shelton trawls through the roadkill of the Australian national identity to reveal a litany of brutality and paranoia, drenched in sweat and beer.

Welcome to a sunburnt country where cars rule, hitchhiking kills and dingoes eat babies.

WINNER, John Chataway Innovation Award, Adelaide Fringe 2016
NOMINEE, Performance Award, Melbourne Fringe 2016.

7:30pm, 3-5 NOVEMBER 2016
TIX FROM $23
VISY THEATRE, BRISBANE POWERHOUSE

Polytoxic is a tiny independent arts company, and we first got a break through the help of other small organisations who dared to support us ... and of course all our lovers and followers and friends!
But sadly many of these organisations are now threatened or extinct due to funding cuts.

Help us make some noise about the value of the arts!

How awesome that The BackUp Service has been nominated for the 2016 Australian Dance Awards!

Our little party-starter (where we fulfill our wildest dreams of being backup dancers for a headlining karaoke superstar from the audience) has taken us to Perth, Darwin, Adelaide, Brisbane, Mackay ... oh, and New York.

Here's to body rolls and spirit fingers forever.

Go team! Lisa Fa'alafi Leah Shelton Nerida Matthaei Liesel Zink
