Miz Ima Starr returns to the MAC stage to accept the ultimate cabaret challenge – singing seventeen Sia songs in sixty minutes!
Accompanied by Amanda Hodder (on piano and occasional dance break), “Sia Sia Wanna be Ya!” is an emotional lucky dip – with not one single power-ballad, diva-moment left under-sung.
Together, the ladies excavate a lifetime in daredevil drag to unearth a femme-focussed celebration of the joy and power of women in music.
Thanks to Sia’s exceptional back-catalogue, the show mixes a decade of the Aussie musical juggernaut’s own hits with some of the 30+ Top 20 tracks she’s penned for the likes of Rihanna, Celine, Eminem, Xtina, Ne-Yo, Guetta and Beyonce.
Songs include ‘Pretty Hurts’, ‘Loved Me Back To Life’, ‘Let Me Love You’, ‘Perfume’, ‘Double Rainbow’, ‘Diamonds’, ‘Elastic Heart’, ‘Titanium’ and ‘Breathe Me’.
This two-night-stand at MAC follows the smashing debut of “Sia Sia Wanna Be Ya!” at Festival of Voices 2016 – and arrives hot on the day-glow-sequin heels of the show’s debut Melbourne season at The Butterfly Club.
Prepare to swing from the chandeliers and elasticise your heart with Tasmania’s own drag-tastic starlet!
