Heresy n Heelz

Heresy N Heelz Twisted Cabaret Special, 13th August 2011. Review: Carey Armstrong

Saturday 13th August saw the Heresy N Heelz Twisted Cabaret Special provide a night of mesmerising burlesque at The Venue, Derby. The entertainment was presented by the effervescent Liberty Pink, who lit up the stage with her hilarious sense of humour and sultry voice, instantly building a rapport with the crowd.

The eclectic mix of acts at the show led to a jarring contrast between performances. The crowd were kept on the edge of our seats as our brains were led roaring with laughter from Alabama Booms hilarious rapunzel parody (complete with very long hair.. and not where you would expect), to sensual, tactile performances from Alexandra Hofgartner.

It was fantastic to see a male burlesque act courtesy of Mister Mistress, who strutted his way across the stage oozing glamour and confidence. The highly acclaimed Vivid Angel lived up to her reputation of ultimate showgirl and sideshow star with sex, gore and slapstick; one minute swinging weights from her eyelids, then writhing around on top of a blow up doll with a giant vagina strapped to her stomach! The impeccable choices of music accompanying the acts throughout the evening just served to heighten the experience.

An excellent selection of stalls open during the night provided a further feast for the eyes, with the local Derby Octopus Tattoo studio displaying their artwork, and mad artist Doctor Geof doodling away at his stall; beware, for once you have seen his posters, you realise you will need to buy at least five of them to plaster on the wall of your Victorian time machine (or if you're not in possession of one then your living room wall).

All Girls Are Magpies had a selection of their sparkly, beautifully hand crafted nipple tassels on display (including specially made Heresy N Heelz themed sets), alongside fine corsetry and beautiful evening wear from Scarlet-Tayla and the Burlesque Salon. Lipstick Effect lingerie store brought along a fine selection of Yes Master and What Katie Did underwear, and new brand Zombie Teeth showcased their simple and eyecatching collection of tees and mini skirts.

The night went by in a flurry of glitter and glamour, and the next Heresy N Heelz can't come soon enough! If you missed out this time round, be there for the Halloween horror spectacular on October 22nd, see you there!
