Decadent and sophisticatedly saucy, Britain’s love of Burlesque has been re-ignited. There’s one weekend in Birmingham this September that will be filled with decadence and breathtaking performances, strictly for over 18’s only.
Enchanted Burlesque – Sirens & Scoundrels will take to The Old Rep’s stage with awe inspiring sights on a seven foot shoe and gravity defying athleticism on a four and a half meter high Chinese pole.
A mere two days later The Glee Club plays host to High Tease. Having toured internationally The Ministry of Burlesque is a showbiz favourite and their seductive showgirls have even entertained the glitterati at the Cannes Film Festival.
Witty, sultry and more than a little extravagant; Burlesque is more than just a striptease, it’s an uproarious cabaret spectacular. Even the audience is encouraged to dress up for the occasion in vintage, dandy, eccentric and theatrically dangerous attire. LB
