I am a copywriter and cake eater with a funny name squeezing delight from life in the Perth Hills with two invigorating teenagers, a cyclone of a toddler, and some geese. You can get to know me at
Event: -
It's a Romp with Pomp
.... and some nudity thrown in!

Meet 14 of history's most notorious Femme Fatales in this historical and hysterical show - Herstory.

Australia's Queen of Burlesque will take you on a journey from Lady Diana to Lindy Chamberlain, Marilyn Monroe and Jackie Kennedy Onassis.

Romp with Pomp!

Imogen Kelly will be our star, and you will get to see her shining bright in most of her glory.

Besides being Australia's Queen of Burlesque, she's been crowned Miss Exotic World, World Queen of Burlesque and is an accomplished circus performer and film writer.

Who better to introduce the audience to a more exposed side of history's judged women?

We will even be treated to her signature act; "Let Them Eat Cake" (guess who?)

Let Them Eat Cake!

Herstory is brought to Perth after sell out seasons in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. Kelly has also headlined at burlesque festivals across the world in New York, Helsinki, New Orleans, Dallas, Austin, Toronto, Hamburg and Berlin.

She's also a survivor and passionate breast cancer advocate who is living proof a double mastectomy is no cause not to be in the spotlight.

The show couples its raunch with narrative, dance, aerials, magic, interactive projections, puppetry and short films.

Come along if you need a little raunch and dance in your Fringe World experience. With nightly shows at 10pm this is the ticket to finish off the night with!

Herstory runs at the 18 venue De Parel Spielgeltent from 27th - 31st January.
