Australia’s own psycho-siren Leah Shelton returns to Melbourne with her award-winning show, Terror Australis.


This f**ked-up outback contiki tour is a frothing hot mess of black comedy, anti-burlesque and hills-hoist pole dance. Trapped inside a sweltering pulp film mash-up, Shelton trawls through the roadkill of the Australian national identity to reveal a litany of brutality and paranoia, drenched in sweat and beer.

Welcome to a sunburnt country where cars rule, hitchhiking kills and dingoes eat babies.
