Dangerous Curves Ahead
New York City’s luscious burlesque girl-gang Dangerous Curves Ahead bring their Spring 2011 Tour through the Northwest for the next two weeks. Pairing up with local performers on each stop, Dangerous Curves Ahead: Burlesque On the Go-Go features the Big Apple’s GiGi La Femme, Anita Cookie, Clams Casino (Most Comedic, Most Innovative @ Burlesque Hall of Fame 2008), Minnie Tonka, and Darlinda Just Darlinda. Attendees of BurlyCon 2010 may recall New York School of Burlesque Instructor Darlinda Just Darlinda’s excellent trio of classes: “Picking Up The Stripper Droppings”, “Shimmy Up The Burlesque Ladder”, and the unforgettably titled “Performance Art Burlesque, or What Did She Just Pull Out of Her Pussy?”
Darlinda Just Darlinda and her co-conspirators are veteran performers with scads of Golden Pastie and BHOF awards among them. They’ll be work-shopping in some cities as well as appearing in a handful of noteworthy side events. Portland will see the ladies shaking their moneymakers April 13 with Baby Le’Strange and Hai Fleisch of burlesque collective Rose City Shimmy; the infamous TUSH! Burlesque will pony up their best moves the following night in Olympia.
Seattle gets the ladies for multiple days, starting with LET MY BUNNIES GO! at West Hall Friday, April 15. Billed as a “Passover and Easter Burlesque Extravaganza”, the show features special performances from none other than Miss Indigo Blue and Heidi Von Haught. For tickets, click HERE.
