About

Moira Finucane is a writer, director, performer and creator of volcanic and magic realist worlds … legendary salons, literary variety and intimate theatrical spectacles, internationally renowned for her arresting mix of provocation and entertainment.

Finucane has defined and redefined cabaret around the world – from Budapest to Tokyo, Hong Kong to Stockholm, Ljubljana to Sydney Opera House. She is the black matter of burlesque; a bower bird across artforms, pecking the eyes from culture to create indelible visions of humanity, joy, power and desire.

One half of the legendary House of Finucane & Smith, she has won 15 theatre awards including six Green Room Awards, the Australia Council’s coveted Theatre Fellowship and the once-in-a-lifetime Contribution to Cabaret Award.
