  • GHOST SALON (on-demand)

    Recording of live performance on 7/11/20 at The Flying Nun, Darlinghurst

    In the shallowest hour of the night a faint outline appears. They outnumber us. They watch us fret and obsess. But tonight, they strike up the band. Ghost Salon is a lush evening of hilarious and haunting cabaret. A luminous view into those who’ve been left in the dark. Part seance, part confessional, part spectral hooley. All welcome, dead or alive.
