As you already know Montreal has a fantastic and exploding burlesque scene. The newest group of ladies to be throwing their nipple tassels into the ring are Cirquantique. Their show, titled ARENA, will be taking place this Friday and will be their first official production. But I’m sure you will recognize these fine ladies, as Cirquantique, is a collaboration between award-winning burlesque performer, Lady Josephine, and professional circus performer, Esmeralda. (Both of whom are performers in the Blood Ballet Cabaret as well) These two exquisite ladies are being joined by seasoned event producer, Simon Skelling.
If women taking their clothes off wasn’t enough to get you out to this event, the show has a sexy theme! The ladies will be baring it all a la ancient times, with the show being set when togas were all the rage. Burlesque performers will showcase artistic, narrative-based striptease acts inspired by marble statues, greco-roman mythology, legendary queens and goddesses. Renowned circus artists will present combat acrobatics, ﬁre manipulation, aerial ropes, diabolo, and trapeze stunts.
As well the event will be taking place at the historic Bain Mathieu, a former bath house converted into a unique theatre venue. (It’s gorgeous!) Lastly the event is hosted by the infamous Plastik Patrick. He’s sexy, surly and sure to put your knickers in a knot.
