Briefs: Close Encounters

Briefs are back with a brand-new show. They've come from the future to test the limits of masculinity and decency with their iconic brand of circus, drag, burlesque and comedy. Expect interstellar aerials, incredible artistry, sharp social commentary and warp-speed strippers from outer space. Prepare yourselves for a close encounter. 'Spectacular' ***** (Time Out). 'Raunchy. Ridiculous. Raucous. Remarkable' ***** (Gay Times). 'Political, edgy, and high camp, Close Encounters is circus boylesque at its most radical, at its most political, and its most entertaining. Not to be missed!' ***** (
