In Flagrante : Neo Burlesque

A real hit at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, "In Flagrante", in Latin, translates to "In blazing".

In Flagrante: Neo Burlesque presents the audience with 4 original slick & contemporary dance performances. Energetic, lithe, perfectly controlled nouveau Burlesque performers. From Apocalyptic Madmax, burlesque women prevails, through to themes from a Roman equine empire.

Frequent intriguing costume changes, enhanced the slices of performance, instantly evoke different moods. The score draws to David Lynch's otherworldly 'Snake Eyes' and Nick Cave's beautifully brooding 'Water's Edge'.

We were offered a clever montage of sub-themes - both contemporary, & old school. Individually each pushed the envelope of female sensuality with a subtle display of agile toned performance artist.

The visual language expertly took our minds to new interpretations of the feminine yet tensile mastery of burlesque & performance art.

A standout was the provocative image incorporating rope props & stylised S&M.

In Flagrante takes burlesque to a new direction, fusing contemporary dance with hyper-sexualised comedy vignettes. It promotes female empowerment, sexuality and acceptance of women of all shapes and sizes. An appreciation at seeing these performers comfortable in their own skin.

Neo-burlesque is a fusion of sex and comedy, as well as being all-inclusive to people no matter what sex or gender. A must see show!
