Galentine’s Day? Desperation Day? Whatever you want to call it; the Sass and Tease Collective have been hard at work over the holidays to put together what they are calling (Almost) Valentines!
Too loved up to leave the house on Valentine’s? Not loved up enough? Come along on Friday the 13th of February as the Collective serves up some sugar and spice with a hearty (see what we did there?) dose of cynicism for good measure.
Join the collective and their guests for a night of indulgence free from saccharine sentiment* hosted by the silver tongued man in a three piece suit; Jacob Harlem and featuring local burlesque beauties; Ivy Ambrosia, Ursula Wolfe, Lily Lovecat and local boylesquer Captain Spitfire.
Joining them on stage are;
Tiffany Blue; Three time winner of Australian Burlesque Community award for ACT people’s choice
Abel Fox; 1st runner up in the Australian Burlesque Festival’s 2014 Baby Bombshell’s competition
Peppa Mint; Canberra Burlesque Idol 2014
The cerulean chanteuse; Belle Bleu
AND joining them from Sydney the unholy union of Holly Bennett and Simone Craswell; Fancy Piece! A queer performance duo with a reputation drenched in blood and glitter.
For those inclined to be glamorous there will be prizes for best dressed.
Advance tickets through Eventbrite.
