Support The Round to support local LGBTQIA+ artists

Two performing arts groups will use the Round's Residency during Midsumma Festival to develop a work with a public showing in our Studio Theatre. Come along to see a fabulous new work, or better still, come along on Friday to see both!

Piera Dennersteins - Pursuing Pleasure: The importance of doing what feels good (cabaret)

Opera singer turned curvaceous cabaret cantatrice Piera Dennerstein (Finucane & Smith, ‘Blue is the Colour’ Midsumma 2022) shares the intimate truths of her body and mind in this sexy, silly and deeply human debut solo show. Using the exceptional versatility of her voice in everything from Puccini to Cardi B, in ‘Pursuing Pleasure’ Piera explores how leaning into the pleasurable is a powerful political act. Presented by Whitehorse City Council and The Round Midsumma Residency Program

  • Fri 2 Feb 8pm. Tickets $35 Full | $20 Conc
  • Sun 4 Feb 2pm. Tickets $35 Full | $20 Conc 


"Piera Dennerstein’s vocal capacity ... is extraordinary"
"Powerful ... vibrated the windows and added fervour ... magnificent"
