Following on from the success of last year’s poetry vs burlesque mash up at the Dylan Thomas Festival, we’re exceedingly pleased to be doing it all again with our friends at the Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea, November 7.
Wordy Shapes Of Women is a night of burlesque and poetry and seeing as it’s Dylan Thomas’ 100th birthday this October, we thought we’d do something extra special, with acts such as ‘Love In The Asylum’, ‘A Child At Christmas’ and a parody of the writing shed on tour being created specially for the festival.
Our all-Wales line-up features Lilly Laudanum who will be going ‘crazy’ for Thomas, literally, with a new act themed directly on one of his poems. Our Lilly regularly performs around the UK, ans is best known for her Queen Victoria character which appeared in last year’s show.
Award-winning Tickety Boo, title holder of Best British Solo from Dublin burlesque festival as well as other accolades, will be making her international debut in November at the Amsterdam Burlesque Award, but before she nips across the pond she will be letting loose her mosquito as she enters Fern Hill.
Primrose Proper has been giving the writing shed a bit of rock ‘n’ roll treatment. She tells us that the shed will be on it’s best behavior having got into trouble recently during its tour across the UK, throwing TVs out of hotel windows and demanding a heavy rider…
Bluestocking resident bus pass powered burlesquers Boris And Doris Von Sneeze have created a new act specially for the Festival, you’ll just have to wait to see what ‘Father Christmas’ brings!
Also on the bill are newcomers Bailey Blue and Mae Breakheart whose acts you will love, and the night would not be complete without our Double Ds team compare DeeDee DeLa Rouge and Dawn…
