Well, we here at Bluestocking Lounge are having a very special month in February! Did we tell you it’s our 5th birthday? That means our February show is going to be extra special! so we have on the bill a fun, lively and explosive bunch of showgirls from the West country, a group we’ve been promising a date to for years – but were just waiting for the right show… It’s time to meet the Flaming Feathers!
Ask anyone who has seen the Flaming Feathers over the past few years and they will tell you they are a joy to behold! cheeky, sparky and electric routines that are a joy to behold. They certainly liven up any evening. Performing professionally across the UK and abroad for a number of years, these beauties from Bristol count 10 in their troupe and have been hitting all kinds of events, including carnivals, cabaret shows, museums, cruise ships – even a farm! One memorable run in Exeter saw them can-can their way through A Dark Victorian Cabaret – a halloween production themed on a ghost theatre
Led by Claire Phillips, aka GoldieLox, the troupe are all hand picked and trained and are professional, proud and passionate about what they do. Loaded with more glitz than tea at the Ritz, their repertoire consists of highly polished dance numbers that are both upbeat and cheeky and certainly put the swing into any occasion…
Specialising in showgirl and vintage dance styles, you can expect to see them shaking their tail feathers to classics such as the CanCan (classic French and modern), 1920s-style charleston, swing, jive, tap and Fosse (the choreographer responsible for re-imagining Chicago).
Some of their high-profile work has been seen at The BBC, Go with Glow, Koko London, The Bristol Museum, The Royal College of Art London, Sounds Commercial, High Tease, Serene Events, Kinky & Quirky, Coco Boudoir, St.Pauls Carnival, The Charleston Charlies and many more. They will be hitting the Bluestocking stage as a four-piece and we just know you are going to love them!
See the Flaming Feathers at Bluestocking Lounge’s Mad Love show, February 14 at Swansea Grand Theatre Arts Wing. Get there early to grab one of the VIP tables (we don’t charge extra for these so these are fist come, first served!) You can read more on the ‘Feathers at http://www.theflamingfeathers.co.uk/
