Miss Burlesque 1919
Just a quickie tonight for my friends at Miss Kitty’s. Do you love costumes, glamour and a bit of frivolity or are you sad that Dark Mofo is over and are looking for something fun to do? Then go along to The Moonah Arts Centre tomorrow night. In fact, better still, wear your own sequins, victory rolls and red lipstick and join in the fun. There’s champagne on tap too.
I bet you didn’t know burlesque dancing was a competitive event. I didn’t either until I went along to Burlesque Idol a few months ago. I was worried that it might be a bit sleazy but it was clever, witty and hugely creative. Far from being exploitative, many participants say that it’s also truly empowering. A bit later I’ll write something about the history of burlesque and its recent revival, but that’s all I have time for now.
Doors open at 7 pm. Show starts 7.30 and tickets are $20
