IT'S CABARET FOR THE UGLY AND BANANA SKINS FOR THE RICH.
IT'S A CREAKY BOAT FULL OF THEATRICAL REFUGEES LOOKING FOR A GOOD TIME.
IT'S A SONG THAT DANCED, A DANCE THAT'S FUMBLED AND A FUMBLE THAT'S SUNG!
WHAT THE HELL?
Lunacy has a name...
The Angry Mime is a regular performance night in Brisbane, Australia. We focus on clown, new vaudeville, contemporary dance, spoken word, experimental works and the completely strange.
It is an intimate night where audiences are invited to watch performers have fun with their craft. It's done for the joy of theatre and performance - a unique opportunity for local performers to meet and play, and for audiences to share their joy.
The Angry Mime will hold 4 events in 2017 and will be hosted by Backbone in their new venue in East Brisbane. Our first event is just around the corner - see more...

History of The Angry Mime
Originally The Angry Mime was started in 2000 in a small warehouse space in Newstead. Back then as now it was a performance space for various disciplines including clown, mask, dance, vaudeville, puppetry and anything experimental. The original Angry Mime was founded by Andrew Cory, Tony Kishawi, Julieanne Hanson and Nigel Pearn. After the first year the performance night moved to Brisbane Powerhouse where it ran for 5 years as a monthly event in the Stores Building. During that time a number of people came on board as organisers and significant helpers. They are: Darryl Rosin, Dan Johnson, Aaron Veryard, Dan Eady and Trent Baumann.
But then we went away.
AND NOW WE ARE BACK!
