Underground Disney 2018 (Burlesque Underground)

May 18, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

The Burlesque Underground in association with StMP presents...

"... Underground Disney 2018 ..."

"Once upon a time..."

There was adventure in the great wide somewhere...it was shining, shimmering, splendid...and it took us to infinity and beyond. We knew that what lay just beyond the river bend was the dreams and wishes our hearts made upon the second star to the right...and that even we poor unfortunate souls could find our way and go the distance, with no worries for the rest of our days.

And then some fucker told us to grow up...and ruined it. The bastards took our tuppence, spat in our bean curd and threw off our groove, hurling us into adulthood and responsibility and dishonouring our cows (among other things).

But this May, the Black Family and their associates take it back to basics...in a journey to the past set to kick you right in the childhood.

With live Disney-inspired, motivated and mangled performances by the Burlesque Underground’s darkest and most depraved denizens, plus an exclusive after-party where you can join in the fun and rub shoulders with the Australian burlesque industry’s most notorious family, Underground Disney is an evening of adult entertainment laced with childhood fancy, morally bankrupt melodrama and twisted black comedy tributes that will leave you wondering where your conscience got to.

So bat your eyes, pucker up your lips and get set to reach for the sky. Or head for the bar.

Hakuna Ma’Vodka.

It means no memories, for the rest of your night.

You’re playing with the big boys now.

You ain’t never had friends like us ;)

But hold onto your hearts . . . Literally . . . It’s gonna get messy.

Featuring live performances by the Black Family and associates finest artistes, plus an exclusive chance to rub shoulders with some of Melbourne's wickedly elite, this is one night to leave your inhibitions at the door and get in the mood for a whole lotta love.

Dress (or undress) to express in Disney inspired couture and costume, sharpen your talons and get ready for an evening of sinfully dark Cabaret, Burlesque and Erotica theatre in the Adult Playground!

The Underground . . . It's burlesque with bite.
