Review: Atrocity

Atrocity is the latest offering from the talented cast of the Burlesque Bar as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival. A full throttle roller coaster ride of emotions takes you through extremes of fear, horror, disgust and humility while exploring it's theme- Beauty. Truth. Horror.

Bar residents Madame Natalia, Miss Nic and Scarlet are lead by Anton De Lorde and the show features new comer, Dominic Bradbury.

Patrons are seated theatre style before the famous checkerboard stage and the show begins with the three female characters, Forma, Veritas and Atrocitus silently entering through the crowd.

Chapters of Atrocity include references to current and historical social culture. Although morally challenging, the exposure of these themes through the medium of Burlesque is refreshing in the current Melbourne burlesque scene.

There are of course, not enough words to truly describe the violent expression which Atrocity offers. It must be experienced to be believed. You can visit the Gig Guide to find more information on how you can be part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival audience for Atrocity.



The last slice of the Cheesecake!

It's with great sorrow that we say goodbye to the Queen of Burlesque, Sarah Lea Cheesecake.

After seven years in the spotlight, the burlesque beauty has announced her retirement from the stage to embark on her new career in make up artistry.

Sarah bid her fans a final farewell at Red Door Burlesque on 29 August 2010 with her signature rope act. The audience cheered on as Sarah perfectly executed the best performance of her career.

We were lucky enough to capture the performance to share with all of her fans. You can watch the video here.

Here at DQ, we wish Sarah all the best in her new career and marriage, and savor that last slice of the Cheesecake!
