The Australian Burlesque Festival will unite both performers and fans from around the country this spring for its 2017 tour, Tropical Tease. Part of a month long national tour, Saturday, October 7 is the date that Perth’s Astor Theatre will fill with the theatrical neo-burlesque performances and the avant-garde glamour of local headliners Penelope Pop, Les Sataniques, and the Tipsy Twosome.

This year features also homegrown talent such as festival co-founder and director Dolores Daiquiri, Honey B. Goode, Miss Bettie Bombshell and Ruby Slippers, plus international acts La Viola Vixen (Berlin), Andromeda Circus (Spain), and Burlesque Noumea Troupe (Noumea) to name a few.

Reaching its eighth consecutive year touring, the Australian Burlesque Festival is renowned internationally for both its enticing showcases and educational workshops, giving local fans the opportunity to take home the tricks of the tease from the best international and local stars of the industry.

Originally established in 2009 by early co-founders Chaz Royal, Sapphira and Rosy Rabbit, the show debuted in 2010 to sold out audiences across the country, with 2017 anticipated to be no different. The Australian Burlesque Festival is now the biggest celebration of the art form in the southern hemisphere.

The Australian Burlesque Festival’s Tropical Tease hits the Astor Theatre on Saturday, October 7. This show is 18+ event, and may contain nudity.
