I first met Claire over a conversation about the Regent theatre being pulled down. At first I thought she was just another bleeding heart on a crusade. .. but after a few minutes I recognised that she really loves Brisbane and its history. Not long after that I realised she was a multi-talented artist and music lover..
Her most recent project "Slowdive" has a Powerhouse week long run and looks funtastic.

Brisbane-based choreographer, Claire Marshall, who has worked with the likes of Darren Hayes, Megan Washington, Powderfinger, Kate Miller Heidke, The Sleepy Jackson, John Butler Trio, The Living End, Little Birdy, Savage Garden and more, continues her exploration of the Fortitude Valley’s club district.
This is Claire Marshall’s penultimate development of Hey Scenester, which sold out in January.

Slowdive sees the Visy Theatre transform into a night club where performers and audience share the space.

Slowdive is a look at the good, the bad, and the ugly side of club culture, and human behavior in the increasingly busy and often absurd scene in Fortitude Valley on a Friday or Saturday night. Set in the early 90's in an underground scene, Slowdive shifts between the strangely compelling and the somewhat disturbing as it explores the agendas of the DJ, bar staff, club owner, and punters.
