AND now for something completely different! The Sweet Tease burlesque boys and girls are ready to surprise, tantalize, and delight longtime fans through a summer show with a twist.
“Typically all three of the co-founders decide the theme [of a show],” explains Anita Narcisse (Erin GO Brahless onstage).
“As far as acts, we have a working list of act ideas for each theme,” she says. “We are always open to input from the rest of the troupe as well, when it comes to act ideas within the theme.”
But for SPF15 (Something Pretty F%*@#ing...), they’re bucking the rules with no theme to be seen! Rather, individual Teases have brought their own ideas to the table, doing “whatever they like” for an act, “whether it be something they have been dying to do, an idea they’ve had, a concept they’ve been developing on their own,” Narcisse offers.
SPF provides some seasonal context, as Rebel Belle, Magnolia Minxxx, Erin GO Brahless, Vesper Von Havoc, Sadie De Sade, Edie Bellini, and Jack N’ Thacox each offer “Something Pretty F%*@#ing Fun,” “Sacrilegious,” “Badass,” “Seductive,” “Elusive,” “Bizarre,” “Ridiculous,” “Fascinating,” etc.
Each performer is in charge of their every twist, turn, wink, sequin, and shimmy—it’s certainly going to be fun to see their individual personalities shine through in a whole new light (so hot, perhaps, we better slather on some sunscreen).
Athens punk quartet SHEHEHE always put on a great show; they’ll open the night.
