well, wow what a busy weekend we have had here at http://www.aboxofburlesque.com/ !! we took a break from "a box of burlesque corset parties" to hit torquay for ruby slippers retro romp!! and romp we blooming did!! me and toni carter at "Classy Chassis Clothing" shared a stall and room for the weekend and though we were there to make money we seemed to pass alot of it over the bar too!! but who could resist letting their hair down with a fantastic line up like Pippa the Ripper, The Flirtinis, Mr B the Gentleman ryhmer and Anna Fur Laxi all in one weekend!!! awesome time was had by all and peeps really got into the spirit! though toni was kind enough to buy me a bucket and spade we never got to frolic on the beach but theres always next year!
what i was most impressed with was the running of the event and particularly the organisation of the burly night! it was a fab night, very welcoming to all manner of audience, there was nothing uncomfortable about it, just straight up cabaret in the best form possible. the audience were a medley of ages and persuasions..from die hard vintage lovers to hen nights, all throwing themselves in to the spirit of the night and everyone was welcomed with open arms!
thats what i want for my night!! Mama-Sutra presents "a box of burlesque"...a night of comedy burlesque! i want to appeal to everyone, i want to open my doors to audiences steeped in the scene, fresh burly enthuiasts, the curious and the confused!!! i want ladies, men, both, neither! i want hen nights and nuns on the run!! come one, come all to a night of top entertainment!!
taking place in the heart of birmingham city centre, at Highlight in Bar Risa on june 16th our first night has fantastic performers Kiki Kaboom, Fanny Divine, Felicia Noir and pole dancer Lulu LaRocca...i want something to be happening all night so hope to mix in other demonstrations/performances too!! theres an awful lot of preparation but it shoud be Fabulous!!!
