Cello - 22 Hurly Burly burlesque.

Jan and I went to a burlesque evening last night in Derby.It's the second time we've been to the event which is run bi also gave us the chance to take a couple of friends along .The evening started with a singer called Des O'conner (no, not that one!) who played his Ukulele. singing some gloriously outrageous songs, he was an instant hit..then we were treated to a contemporary dance version of 'Little Red Riding Hood' which was full of dark menace and had a great twist at the end. Then a selection of burlesque dancers lead by Cherry De Ville. I particularly liked a dance on the theme of the Tooth Fairly which was wonderfully dark and menacing and performed by the stylish and beautiful Beatrix Von Bourbon. A wonderful sure you'll see the results of the inspiring performances affecting my work here!
