"There is no exquisite beauty without some strangeness in its proportions" Edgar A Poe
Inspired by the works of the great Edgar Allan Poe, Raven Productions Australia is a unique company of actors and performers who merge song, burlesque and abstract performance art to bring to life his tales of the macabre, morbid, quirky and often comical.
Since establishing in 2013, our productions have played at Sydney’s famous Slide Bar and Vanguard Theatre to sold out audiences and toured to The Adelaide Fringe in 2015 where their production of Edgar’s Girls received 4 out of 5 star reviews.
"Raven Productions Australia's collective stage presence commands the audience with vivid scarlet lips and bold personas to match” ...Rip It Up Magazine (Adelaide Fringe Festival 2015)

Now comes perhaps the most interesting Burlesque propositions so far, a tease where gothic literature is the stimulus. The Grotesque and Arabesque is a theatrical fusion of song, burlesque and circus celebrating the work and influences of the master of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe.
