What we're about

This is a social group dedicated to exploring all the strange, obscure, weird, wild, absurd, bizarre, avant garde, unconventional entertainments that Melbourne has to offer.

BEWARE! This ain't no brunch club. There will be NO trivia nights at the local RSL. This group is not for the faint of heart - it is for people who are fun, adventurous, and ready to hit their wild button. All ages (18+), all genders, all sexual orientations, all types - anyone who wants to explore an alternative, bohemian, experimental, wild-at-heart side of Melbourne is welcome!

We want this to be the place where everyone can just come as they are and mingle with people who are like them AND who are NOT like them. Let your hair down! Go wild! Be open minded, be non-judgmental, expand yourself, challenge yourself and, most importantly, BE yourself.

"And now," cried Max, "let the wild rumpus start!" - Maurice Sendak, Where the Wild Things Are

OUR TRAFFIC LIGHT SYSTEM

Our events (like our members!) are each wild in a different way.

Some events are artistically wild, challenging us to explore new and unusual forms of art, music, burlesque, cabaret, poetry, theatre...and all varieties of bohemian performing arts events. We call these "GREEN EVENTS"

Some events are socially wild, and involve activities that challenging us to open up and risk truth in order to make genuine, non-superficial connections with each other. We call these "YELLOW EVENTS"

Some events are just plain WILD and only suitable for the truly adventurous!! These events challenge our self-imposed limitations and the socially constructed concepts of "normal". If an event "May contain nudity and adult themes" we will mark them as a "RED EVENT!"

WHERE WE DRAW THE LINE:

There are no drugs and no sex parties! We do not include things in our event that put our members at risk, break the law or fail to meet with meetups defined policies and guidelines. Each member is responsible for their own behavior and is expected to treat members, venues, entertainers and staff with courtesy and respect.

TICKETS:

Our events are audience funded so almost all of our events are pre-purchase only. (no tickets at the door). This enables us to cover costs of our events without risk. We are unable to offer refunds, however, if you purchase a ticket and then can't make it, you can post on our message board that you are looking to sell your ticket.

TEMPLE OF LILITH: Erotic Theatre / Social Event

Hares and Hyenas

When a lone priestess evokes the ancient spirit of Lilith: the First Woman, you and a room of strangers become entangled in a web of myth and seduction!

Referencing ancient Kabbalah, modern poetry, and visual art through the ages, this show explores the contradictory and ever-changing face of the mythical character, Lilith.
