About the show:
Hot Box premiered in the 2013 Melbourne International Comedy Festival at The Butterfly Club accompanied by Cameron Thomas and directed by Scott Gooding. It was the first year in the Butterfly Club’s new inner-city location. Hot Box had a return season at The Butterfly Club in July of the same year before shipping to the UK for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and a short season in London.
Melbourne cabaret sensation Karin Danger has been delighting crowds with her wicked tunes for eight years. Hailed by The Scotsman as “genuinely delightful and deliciously dark” Karin returns to sing about beauty, makeup and everything that’s “so hot right now” in her new show HOT BOX.
We all wear clothing, even if we don’t want to. Some of us wear makeup, Karin definitely doesn’t want too. HOT BOX tackles the everyday struggles of a shabby tracksuit girl in a nip-tucked Kardashian world.
Using a full banquet of performance styles including storytelling, standup, dance, character, sketch and mime HOT BOX is a one-woman musical extravaganza featuring Karin’s award-winning songwriting skills. The ten new songs written for HOT BOX include a jazz lament of the perils of dating outside your age bracket and a wheezing hip hop anthem familiar to anyone whose attempted a Pump class.
HOT BOX premieres in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival before jet setting off to the Edinburgh Fringe. Last year, Karin was shortlisted for the People’s Choice award in Edinburgh Fringe as well as winning the Victorian division of the National Cabaret Showcase.
Directed by Scott Gooding, and part of the trio of shows that Vicious Fish Theatre is bring to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
