PRETTY PEEPERS: THE UNTRADITIONAL CABARET
Will be in Perth from: 29/1Will be leaving Perth on:3/2
What word best describes your show?
Psychedelic* OK, now you've got 50 words - please elaborate on the above.
A creative, humorous and demented trip into the underbelly of the human psyche. It's burlesque with brains, campy comedy & absurd theatre brushed with the beautiful,the dark,the joyful and the sparkly.
Dismantling of archetypes,gender and sexuality
- Where have you performed the show?
Melbourne fringe festival and home town runs throughout Sydney.* How did you get into performance?
From being an exhibitionist in nightclubs and staging spontaneous happenings in the early 90s I was asked by a promoter if I would like to get paid and actually do a performance. I was also working as a stripper and the two mediums kinda fused to create the style and genre I perform in now. A hybrid strip art that was to eventually be known as burlesque.* Career highlight?
Starting Australia's 1st burlesque club, Gurlesque ran for 10 very successful years.* What does "fringe" mean to you?
Apart from a hairstyle it's a fabulous way to connect with audiences and artists from all over the world. Kinda like a pickup joint of creativity for artists. Hubba Hubba !!!* Know much about Perth? (Visiting acts)
I've never been to Perth and can't wait to spread the love and my legs for the west coast
- Why is your show at Fringe World a must-see?
It will be a spectacular showcase of east Coast bent theatrical burlesque/vaudeville that is totallyunique to the world. It's a Sydney style ,a unique story telling and social satire wrapt up in glitter, kitsch, color and pizazz. I can actually promise wouldn't have seen anything like it :-)
