Fifi Fantôme & La Viola Vixen’s Cabaret of Curiositease is a baroque chamber of burlesque, circus and dark sideshow.
It’s been a long time since I wrote about burlesque but guys: just because I’ve not written about it, doesn’t mean it’s not happening. It is, in fact, happening, and on Friday May 11th there will be a performance at Toast Hawaii that’ll be Berlin burlesque at its nipple-tasseled best.
Why haven’t I written about Burlesque in so long? Maybe a got a girlfriend. Maybe I got Netflix. Who knows. But after I received an email from Fifi Fantôme about this upcoming show, I took my old corset directly to the dry cleaners.
As part of Berlin Burlesque Week 2018, Cabaret of Curiositease will bring that weirdo factor back to Berlin burlesque scene. The: what the hell did I just see? factor. Because, let’s face it, we’ve all seen performers slowly taking off silk gloves before.
The event will include drag, circus, neo-burlesque, and sideshow, featuring performers such as Billie Rae, one half of Berlin fetish factory Bad Bruises, plus some of their House of Red Doors extended family, Fifi Fantôme, Curly Gumbo Lee, La Big Bertha, Wild Whiskers, Ariane Kat, and Dunja, a two-time Guinness World Record hula-hooper.
