In Flagrante - neo burlesque

BY Phil O'Reilly | 07-May-2018
Dealing up lonely North Korean traffic girls, wet nurse fetishes and steam punk super heroines, In Flagrante takes burlesque to a whole new level.
Now back for a second short season, In Flagrante blindsided Melbourne audiences and critics last May with a brand of ‘neo’ burlesque never quite seen before. Described by Australian Stage’s Lee Bemrose as “…the whole thing, all these little stories, it was all so good” In Flagrante takes burlesque in a unique new direction of its very own, fusing super slick contemporary dance influenced choreography with hyper sexualised deeply funny vignettes that mock patriarchy in fiendish and extremely original ways.

Auckland based In Flagrante - neo burlesque, is the creation of MaryJane O'Reilly a contemporary dance choreographer so has a deeper layer of meaning and a much richer movement vocabulary than the more traditional form of the genre. A real critical and audience hit last May in Melbourne and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival it was described by UK's Fringe Review as a "sexy, thought provoking sensual experience' In Flagrante's one hour show is a tightly woven suite of fiendishly funny, deeply satiric, and ultra slick short works that attack patriarchy and female stereotyping in entirely and surprising ways. The show traverses the divide between traditional burlesque and more theatrical audiences who are looking for a deeper narrative, but still want their socks blown off.
