French Café is a show within a show: a dance-theatre work set in a French cabaret bar.

French Café

A Sprung!! Integrated Dance Theatre Production

Fri 25 & Sat 26 March 2022


$20 - 36 + transaction fee

Theatre, Lismore City Hall


Join us in a late night bar for French Café, a dance-theatre cabaret created by the Sprung!! ensemble.

This remount of the highly successful 2019 season at the Brunswick Picture House introduces some new characters, dramas and love to the already colourful performance.

At French Café, there is hope of finding love, even for the most fringe members of “French” society. Set to a soundtrack of French classics, the characters dance their way through awkward first meetings, the eruption of deep traumas, and sensational bring-the-house down cabaret numbers.

French Café is a sexy soiree that gets bent and ends in high drama.

Oh wow. Wow wow wow… we both feel so much better about
life after seeing your show. The humour, intelligence, subtlety
and charm of every single person just shone through, I was
weeping at the end.“ – Ed Ayres, ABC Radio (French Café 2019)
