Briefs: Close Encounters Review

Briefs: Close Encounters

The Mothership has landed at Leicester Square Spielgeltent

A review by Charli Bruce

We headed down to Leicester Square Spiegeltent to check out the Briefs boys – A masculine troupe of seriously gorgeous guys from Oz. They are led by their beautiful and highly sassy emcee, Shivannah, who had the whole place in stitches with her brilliant sarcasm and cheeky puns.

Briefs: Close Encounters takes you on a journey through space in The Mothership to the future where there is a place for everyone, their key message is kindness and acceptance, not just for minorities but, for every individual on the planet.

The show is seriously amazing and I couldn’t have been more mesmerised or in awe than when I was watching them. The boys bend and blend the rules with their out of this world circus skills, raucous comedy, drop dead gorgeous drag, and their trademark punkish swagger.

The show itself is a glittering extravaganza, with the costumes, music and staging being so on point. Not only can these boys dance, but they can also move their body’s in ways I didn’t think possible. The acrobatics, ariel performances and humour behind the show is truly joyus to watch.

I absolutely loved the show and I would love to go to see it again as it was that great. It was a fun-filled night that had me watching with my eyes wide open in admiration for the show as a whole, I was left with a huge smile on my face by the end of the night and needed to tell everyone I came into contact with about how great it was.

The Briefs boys are at the Leicester Square Spiegeltent until the 3rd of January 2019 and I highly recommend grabbing yourself a ticket before they leave.
