The Briefs Factory boys are back, with the world premiere of 'Sweatshop' – gathering a labour force of performers as they manufacture a conveyor belt of high-quality circus treats, cultivated by a warehouse of sweaty, motivated mischief makers.

It's an evening of laughter, death-defying acts and entertainment, making its world premiere at Queensland's Redland Performing Arts Centre (RPAC) before jetting off to the iconic Edinburgh Fringe in the UK.

Briefs Factory is an Australian, award-winning collective, known for creating and presenting evocative, irreverent, physical performance. Their productions are inspired by circus, drag, dance, burlesque, music, comedy, and the goings-on of the world around them. They've taken their signature stylings around the world.

Here, Performer and Briefs Co-Creator Mark Winmill lists five totally un-skippable '90s classics ahead of the world premiere of 'Sweatshop' at RPAC.



One

'No Scrubs' by TLC. For the ever-inspiring outfits and style that Lisa 'Left Eye' gave the world.



Two

'Ride On Time' by Black Box. As soon as that first vocal kicks in it transports you straight to the dance floor.



Three

'Fantasy' by Mariah Carey. Whisking you away in a romantic haze of young love.



Four

'My Lovin' by En Vogue. Catwalking down to the shops in your own silver sequin film clip.



Five

'Tell It To My Heart' by Taylor Dayne. For the enormous inspiration of the teased and crimped fringe.

'Briefs: Sweatshop' plays Redland Performing Arts Centre (Queensland) 15-16 July.
