Sexy, Spectacular… Unmissable!
Enter the seductive world of Burlesque Circus, Dance and Cabaret, showcasing over 100 artists from New Zealand and
overseas. Heavenly Burlesque transforms The Paramount into a world of live original performance and music limited to 3
The performance world explodes with wild, fruity, ideas, dreams and images that collide and captivate. Reinvestigating
Burlesque allows for an exploration and playing with ideas of "body politics" – sex, gender, courtship, media imagery,
and social/ cultural expectations.
Once through the front doors the journey into elaborate worlds of performance begins. Firstly in the Bar / café area the
audience will encounter installations, music and theatrical antics, then the cabaret show starts as doors open to the
main stage which will host an incredible line up of amazing acts incorporating dance, circus, comedy, music and
contributions from the best of the fringe. Short sharp acts no longer than 10 minutes means the show is a thrilling
roller coaster ride that guarantees something for everyone! When the main stage show ends the party is just beginning in
the bar with bands and DJ’s till late. All included in the ticket price! A complete festival experience in the one
location. Heavenly Burlesque has it all!
More! More! More! Galore! Hula Hoops, Fire-eaters and Slick Tricks, songs, comedy and high aerial work to dazzle and
dancing girls to astound you.
