With our Our Friends Eclectic show hitting Swansea Grand Theatre Arts Wing in just a matter of days, we thought it was about time you met some of the performers you’re going to be seeing… Starting with Aurora Galore!
We have to say, we’re really excited to have Aurora in Swansea… She is a very unique performer – like no other you will have seen on our stage. Her routines are clever, creative and just bursting with electricity!
Performing on stages since the age of five, Aurora entered the burlesque scene in 2010 and since then has racked up a number of awards, including Stockholm Burlesque Festival’s best tasseller in 2013, the title of Miss Paris Burlesque Festival in 2012 and Most Innovative Performer at this year’s prestigious Burlesque Hall Of Fame in Las Vegas. She is currently voted number one burlesque performer in the UK and voted in the top 15 burlesque performers worldwide by readers of 21 Century Burlesque magazine.
Inspired by a whole spectrum of influences that range from a love of Haute Couture and avant garde fashion to turn-of-the-century Circus Freaks and a wide range of dance styles, her performances vary from dark, outlandish dance acts to fire breathing finales and burlesque parodies. For more info on Aurora Galore, head over to her website http://www.auroragalore.com – she also sells cute little Aurora Ts, hoodies and bags, there too!
We cannot wait for Saturday to see her in action! Doors open at 7.30pm – get there early to get the best seats in the house!
