CHEEK AND TONGUE IN BIG SMOKE

The Courier-Mail - - NEWS - JA­COB MI­LEY

WALK through the doors of Bris­bane’s Tivoli tonight and you can ex­pect to see some­thing dif­fer­ent, unique and a lit­tle bit tongue-and-cheek.

Af­ter mak­ing its Toowoomba de­but overnight, the Aus­tralian Bur­lesque Fes­ti­val has moved to the cap­i­tal city and is set to treat the Bris­bane au­di­ence to an evening of glam­our, cos­tume and theatrics.

“It’s in­ter­est­ing to watch. It’s a fun, sassy form of en­ter­tain­ment,” di­rec­tor of the fes­ti­val, and also per­former, Dolores Daiquiri said.

The show will fea­ture in­ter­na­tional and lo­cal per­form­ers.

“It’s quite a va­ri­ety of per­form­ers that are on the stage,” Ms Daiquiri said. “We have some acts that are re­ally slow and sul­try, and other acts that are big, high en­ergy and high im­pact and some funny acts as well.”
