The second SenseUs event in Brisbane proved to be very successful with around 200 industry guests in attendance.
On arrival at the Brisbane Powerhouse guests were struck by the sight of two performers on four metre high sway poles. Once inside “Charlie Chaplin” ushered them to the registration table. Early arrivals then took the opportunity to check out the Powerhouse bar that overlooks the Brisbane River.
Once inside the main theatre of the Powerhouse a variety of roaming performers interacted with the guests accompanied by the gypsy jazz tunes of Fox Lane. The delicious food by Zen Catering was accompanied by some great cocktails by Bar Alto (the Powerhouse’s in-house bar)
The focus on this event was to enable the guests to network in an event that brought together the best in entertainment, décor, production and catering.
The ambience was kept low key to enable the networking to proceed at a leisurely pace, punctuated by a few highlight performances. Jack Chambers danced his way through a Bob Fosse inspired number. Jack won the first season of So You Think You Can Dance. Then a contrast in dance style from Brisbane based dance crew THE D. These boys are what Hip Hop is all about – slick, seductive, perfect unison, funky and extremely good looking.
The highlight was probably the duo doing the Perch Pole act watching this performer shimmy up a four metre pole balanced on her partner’s shoulder was quite impressive and then to see her perform on the pole certainly sets a challenge to traditional pole dancers.
Dr Rhythm sure knows how to doof a microphone and assisted by some loops and effects pretty much performs as a one man band.
To end off the night Vegas Please showed some originality in their choice of covers and soon had many of the guests on the dancefloor.
Throughout the night guests visited The Ultimate Selfie studio to create some great selfies that were uploaded direct to Facebook by the EventPix team. Check them out here.
