The only way to end the party
New York City's award-winning burlesque duo are heading to Fringe World 2013 to present their eye-popping acrobatics and banana-flavoured insanity!
Trixie is a freakishly strong, bendy burlesque beauty who gets into compromising situations with Monkey, her hilarious, hairy, boylesque co-star.
For the first time in Perth, they present their greatest acts, cultivated during a decade on the road in America.
For discerning audiences who like their entertainment both brilliant AND stupid, Flipping and Stripping will feature trapeze, striptease, shenanigans and a monkey in a tutu.
Perth audiences will be delighted with the duo's irresistible blend of high level circus training, brilliant comedy and electric onstage chemistry. Their original mix of circus and striptease has been called "the only way to end the party" and has earned them titles such as Best Burlesque Duo 2006 and Monkey's King of Boylesque 2010 title at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas.
Trixie and Monkey have shows on the 11-16 & 18-19 February 2013 at the De Parel Spiegtent, Perth Cultural Centre, Northbridge.
Shows (8 Shows only) are at 9.45pm. Tickets cost $25 - $30 and are available from FringeWorld.
