Sisters return with Crackup Variety Night

Oct 28, 2016 | Front Page Feature, News

Colourful country gals The Crackup Sisters will continue their yearlong ‘mixed-bag’ tour of comedy, whip cracking, acrobatics and story-telling around the North Burnett in November.

Returning to the region, the ‘sisters’ will take their performance art and community development experience to local community halls with a crack-up sisters variety show including local support acts as part of their ‘Norming Arts and Culture into Everyday Life’ project, intended to make art accessible, real and relatable across non-traditional sectors, including health, sport and recreation, using art as a vehicle to help with recovery. This exciting new initiative will help support the community, and build capacity, resilience and connectivity through creative mediums.

The Crackup Sisters will be appearing at various locations across the region with an aim to engage with people of all ages, artistic and cultural interests while building stronger communities.
