AFTER three sell-out years, the search is on again for the Northern Rivers' most original, bizarre and talented professional, semi-professional and closet community performers for Ukitopia Arts Collective's annual Cabaret 360.

Auditions will be held on May 7 and 13 in Uki for young and old performers from dance, circus, music, comedy, physical theatre, performance poetry, wearable art and more.

Cabaret 360 Director Hamilton Barnett said the event, now in its fourth year and being held on 8 and 9 June - had really cemented itself as a feast of performance, proving itself to be a place to come and experience a diverse array of highly entertaining performance.

"We're looking for five minute acts and we usually feature 20 to 30 acts in what's become a slick production, as we transform the Uki Hall into a theatre in the round," Mr Barnett said.

"We really encourage people to audition, and work hard to try to support them to bring out the very best in their performance.

"While music and visual arts are really well represented in the region, Cabaret 360 is a rare opportunity for other performance acts to be involved.

"It's also an ideal opportunity for professional performers to do something a bit left of their usual field, such as the well-known musician who performed wearing nothing but balloons, which was a real highlight from the first Cabaret 360."

Mr Hamilton said this year's cabaret would be strictly M-rated so performers and audience members needed to be over 15 and preference would be given to original, contemporary pieces.

Auditions for Cabaret 360 will be held on Monday May 7 at 6pm and Sunday May 13 at 4pm in Uki.

To audition or for further information contact Hamilton Barnett on 0439 021 233 or email cabaret360@gmail.com.
