“One of Australia’s best cabaret voices” (Miss Friby), Sophie deLightful is classy yet brash, heavenly yet devilish, and all the time brimming with sparkles and glitter. In a world which judges all too quickly on swipe-left likability, this Melbourne-based cabaret performer and producer aims to teach that you shouldn't always judge a book by its dreadlocked cover.
Adaptable and reliable, Sophie has entertained audiences at festivals including Wide Open Space (Alice Springs), Rainbow Serpent (Victoria) and Boom Town (England). She has also produced her own sold-out productions under the Sophie deLightful Presents banner and works with a number of organisations as Creative Director for ongoing, cabaret-related projects. With her most recent Power Pussies series, she toured Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane and Adelaide and earned 5-star reviews as well as award nominations.
As part of the Circulation circus tour, Sophie deLightful will be offering workshops for people who love the spotlight - but don’t exactly know how to use it. Fine-tuning methods in audience interaction and the age-old art of heckling, these workshops aim to prepare budding MCs and hosts in bringing their own style to the stage while ensuring that the show must go on.
Also offering workshops in general cabaret and burlesque skills, Sophie deLightful can direct your desires from the slightly sexy to the downright devilish. Who do you want to be? How do you want to create that character? Where do you want to take them?
Group workshops and 1-on-1 consultations available.
