INTERNATIONAL Burlesque stars to shine in Christchurch

INTERNATIONAL Burlesque stars to shine in Christchurch

Internationally and nationally acclaimed burlesque stars are going to be spreading their rhinestones across the stage for a one-night only show in October for the New Zealand Burlesque Festival tour.

The 2nd Annual New Zealand Burlesque Festival will be shimmying its way to Christchurch for its Tour show on October 18th at Twiggers Addington Raceway. Local burlesque babe Ruby Ruin who won the coveted Queen of the festival title at the 2013 festival, will be featuring alongside the World Queen of Burlesque 2013, LouLou D’Vil from Finland. The power packed line-up will not end there, as joining the cast will be sideshow strongman “The Baron” (Finland), NZ’s godmother of burlesque Eva Strangelove who is returning from the USA to perform, and internationally acclaimed performer and winner of Miss Burlesque NZ 2013, MisRed Delicious.

MisRed, who by day is known as Kerry Rodda, along with her husband Danny, is the co-producer of the Festival. “We’re incredibly excited to be bringing this talent fuelled show to Christchurch. Ruby Ruin is a fabulous burlesque entertainer and is really starting to make her mark on the international burlesque world. We are so honoured to have her alongside our guests including the best burlesque performer in the world LouLou D’Vil. Loulou is entrancing, energetic and a classic beauty; everything that burlesque is. We can’t wait for the audience to experience burlesque at its finest”.

The R18 show will be a glamour filled evening, with ticketing options of general admission or VIP which includes nibbles and wine. Full information for the show and other Festival events can be found at or EventFinder.
