Feats of daring, illusion, seduction and sedition are performed by a luscious troupe of gorgeous performers in a smouldering burlesque. Comedic, politically astute and poetically informed, it's more than the adrenaline of circus, the titillation of burlesque, the charm of comedy or the heart of theatre. Salacious and subversive, we gently undress ideas around modern and historic sexuality for your fulfillment.

As part of the NZ International Comedy Festival, Burlesque as You Like It will play in the Cadbury Crunchie Concert Chamber, in the Auckland Town Hall, opening Tuesday May 11th and running for five nights, until Saturday 15th May.

Hand picked for their individual talents the troupe uses circus arts, comedy, singing, dancing, balance acrobatics and more to undress ideas around sexuality, both modern and historic.

The Dust Palace Crew is Nisha Madhan, Mike Edward, Eve Gordon, Ebon Grayman, Ascia Maybury, Callum Edwin Stembridge, Colleen Davis, Sarah Houbolt, Geof Gilson, Campbell Farquhar and Tui Gordon.

"Burlesque as you like it - The Blush Review” plays the clown slipping on lacy undies covered in whipped cream, the archeologist, digging up the past for us to investigate through modern magnifying apparatus, and the provocateuse, balancing
'sexy' and 'intelligent' on the sharpened blade of a knife.

“...daring, juicy, ironic, provocative and very funny cabaret style commentary on modern and historic sexuality...”
Edna Heled, Rodney Times
