In Flagrante is Mary Jane O’Reilly’s modern and beautifully deviant take on the burlesque revival; six dancers caught in the act with a fetish for leather, nudity in public and a wild equestrian spirit.

This work takes Mary Jane back to her roots as choreographer and artistic director of the seminal Limbs Dance Company, whose signature style was their highly developed sense of satire and superb technical execution, with a genius for slapstick physical theatre.

Mary Jane’s eye for comedic and satiric juxtaposition makes In Flagrante a heady, exhilarating and very sexy romp through some deliciously dark territory.

A tableau of femme fatale pop iconology, from objects of fetish in bridles and pony tails to Eve as a latter day cigarette girl, a subversive North Korean police woman directing traffic, to the glamour Vargas girl cartoons of WW2 bomber nose art - set to the album ‘Ballroom Stories’ by uber quirky Austrian cabaret group Waldeck.

The result is a truly unique experience, and catnip to its large and widely appreciative audience.

"If you’re a contemporary dance fan you’ll adore the captivating choreography and precise physical and cerebral execution. Be prepared to be surprised - if not a little shocked. If you’re not a dance fan you’ll love the gorgeous sculpted dancers, the humour, music and daring minimal costumes. A fresh look at burlesque, in all it’s slick, naked darkness and glory."
