HOT IN HELLSINKI- Burlesque Spring Partee

Helsinki Burlesquen vuotuinen kevätrieha uudella nimellä ja hiukan uudella fiiliksellä. Paikkana perinteikäs Ravintola Kaisaniemi.
Glitteriä ja rokkia, kansainvälisiä tähtiä, kotimaisia konkareita ja kirsikkana kakun päällä aivan uunituoreita tulokkaita.

Esitellään tässä vielä esiintyjäkaarti kuvin joita ei välttämättä FBssä sensuroimatta sulateta

ABOUT KITTEN N’ LOU:A marriage made up of one part “polished, clever, and glamorous” (Dita Von
Teese) from Kitten LaRue and one part “hilarious dance magic” (The
Stranger) from Lou Henry Hoover could be none other than Kitten N’ Lou!
This “camp, show-stopping couple” (The UK Daily Mail) uses burlesque, drag,
dance, and theater to make performance that has been called “brilliantly
deranged” (Time Out New York) and “genius” (The Huffington Post). Kitten
N’ Lou were crowned Most Comedic at the 2014 Burlesque Hall of Fame,
honored as 2014 Artists of the Year by City Arts Magazine, and most recently
voted the #1 burlesque artists in the world in the Burlesque Top Fifty by 21st
Century Burlesque. Known for their signature brand of highly choreographed
comedic camp extravaganzas, this dynamic duo has dazzled audiences
across the globe, headlining festivals such as the Helsinki Burlesque Festival
and Viva Las Vegas. They recently debuted their two-person show
OVEREXPOSED at the Fringe World Festival in Perth, and are kicking off their
US tour at Joe’s Pub in NYC. You can find both of them starring in The
Atomic Bombshells, the burlesque supertroupe Kitten has Produced/Directed
for a decade to critical acclaim. Lou has been recognized with numerous
grants and awards for his work as a choreographer in the US, including most
recently the 2016 Emerging Artist Award in dance from the University of
Michigan. Kitten N’ Lou collaborate extensively with drag artist
BenDeLaCreme as DeLouRue Presents. Kitten N’ Lou recently made their
television debut with Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett on the PBS Great
Performances special Cheek to Cheek. !!
