What did Ken and Barbie do when you weren’t looking?

Babushka present a crazed and cutesy cabaret all about our first childhood BFF, the doll. Ramping up their range of talents, the Babushka gals will nurse dolls, break dolls and become dolls in their typically surprising arrangements of everything from Queen and Guns 'n' Roses to Destiny’s Child and Offenbach.

Prepare to be seduced, comforted, tickled and burped through a dark musical comedy experience, drawing from opera, 80s pop, nursery rhymes and rock’n’roll. Take a stroll down the cynical side of memory lane and see the world through your Dolly’s eyes.

We yearn to be Barbie, cuddle our Cabbage Patch baby, stick pins in Voodoo dolls (but not in blow-up dolls), and sometimes we behave like baby-dolls ourselves. Babushka beckons you into the Barbie Dream house for a very grown-up play-date... Batteries sold separately.

“...lambasted the audience with raunchy wit, sly humour, sexy asides, and fabulous vocals…” Absolute Theatre

“Babushka don't do things by halves, these girls go ga-ga for femme.” Scenetr

Doll has been developed in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse and assisted by the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts’ Fresh Ground artist-in-residence initiative, made possible through Arts Queensland.
