Australia’s tiki scene has been slowly gaining traction, as the tikiphiles are finding each other. Now comes word of a tiki event in Sydney, at the Sugartime cabaret at 24 Oxford St., in Darlinghurst, Sydney. The event will feature several burlesque performances with tiki themes, and a velvet painting of a live model will be created during the night. Another highlight is a live tiki carving by Marcus Thorn of Tiki Beat. There will also be a performance of a Cook Island hula by a dance troupe, and the decor of Sugartime will be turned tiki for the evening. According to the invite, “Polynesian dress essential.” This sounds like just the sort of event that Australian tikiphiles have been looking for!
