Canberra's Burlesque Variety Favourites come to Melbourne

Published by: JazidaProductions | 5-Apr-2019
After two years of sold out shows in Canberra (packing in audiences of over 200pax), Decadence and Debauchery is coming to Melbourne for the first time, delivering vintage striptease with a modern twist. This burlesque variety show is filled with decadent performers sharing debaucherous behaviour. The incredible and eclectic cast supports diversity in the burlesque world by bringing together women of colour, queer performers as well as intercultural artists in a high-quality, professional production. Decadence and Debauchery is a burlesque variety night happening at 8pm on Easter Sunday (21 April) at 24 Moons in Northcote, where the audience can enjoy drinks live music, sideshow acts, comedy and burlesque, at a very affordable price! At its core, burlesque is about the art of tease and that is exactly what people can look forward to!
