Get your tassels and feathers at the ready... we are delighted to announce that the fabulous Talulah Blue will be returning to Barefoot Festival to host her spectacular Burlesque & Cabaret Extravaganza on the Saturday night, showcasing some of the best names in Burlesque & Cabaret entertainment.
Talulah Blue - International showgirl and fire eating follie. With a history of classical dance training, and natural charm, it makes for a beautifully conducted, fun performance.
This burlesque darling has graced stages across the world, starting her journey on the Britains Got Talent stage, she has since performed at cabaret clubs in Hong Kong, Formula 1 in Abu Dhabi and various other middle Eastern and European destinations.
Cece Sinclair - Cece is a very passionate and high energy burlesquer ready to take the world by storm. Influenced by dancers of the golden era of burlesque, Cece blends together the vintage glamour of the classic striptease with her dynamic ideas and diverse influences.
With a love of performing that began at an early age, Cece has stage experience and training in a number of performance art forms from classical vocal training to Shakespearean acting. After years of performing arts training, Cece has spent the last 6 months under the wing of the highly accomplished Lady Wildflower and is now ready to venture further into the captivating world of Burlesque. Having made her debut at the Hebden Bridge Burlesque festival with her fierce, sassy, yet elegant style, this seductive caramel siren is not one to miss!
Mortimer Moonbender - Brussels finest country-side gentleman. With a wealth of theatrical experience and performances under his vintage belt, he became a Boylesque performer like no other. His British humour, lanky and alluring persona; this is the most refined tease and twerk you'll ever lay your eyes on.
Stage Door Johnny - has been involved in theatre since the age of 15 and has a degree and Masters in Theatre and Performance.
After seeing the many shows at The Candybox in the Midlands, amongst them the famous St Valentine’s Day Mascara show, he was inspired to come together with friends to hold their own burlesque night in Lichfield. Their first show under their newly formed production company, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, was called From Russia With Love and Lichfield didn’t know what had hit them! Since then he has gone on to hold many Kiss Kiss Bang Bang shows and has branched out to Très Très Cabaret where he aims to bring decadence, delight and perhaps a touch of debauchery.
"Historically, in times of austerity and depression the burlesque and cabaret scene has a resurgence, and I think it's because audiences want a reason to get glammed up and have an extravagant night out and a bit of a splurge, when they might be economising in other areas. It's the modern day Cinderella story: we spend our lives in the daily grind of jobs and running households, but for one night, you get to go out in a stunning outfit and experience things you've never imagined. I guess that makes me your personal fairy godmother! So put your cares aside for one night and let your hair down!"
