CHEEK AND TONGUE IN BIG SMOKE
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.”
