PsYcHoMaNtEuM 2018 (Burlesque Underground)

July 20, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

The Burlesque Underground in association with StMP presents...

"... PsYcHoMaNtEuM 2018 ..."
"Look to your neighbours...to your friends,
Look to your daughters...to your wives,
You must release them to our care...you are endangering your lives,
Let us relieve you of your burden...from the fear you’re living in,
Protect yourselves from their corruption,
From their wickedness and sin..."
- Emilie Autumn 'We Want Them Young.'

Step right up...ladies and gentlemen may I have your attention please...come see the finest oddities of ostracized anomalies, the broken, the beaten and the bereft, here for your entertainment, astonishment, and apathy.

Delve into the most fractured of minds and traverse a wonderland of the wretched, where the past, present, and future collide in a cacophony of demented despair, reflected in a cracked mirror of tormented souls and half-remembered nightmares.

But don't be afraid, within the hallowed halls of hysteria, a precious collection of delectable heathens awaits...to bare their bodies and their souls as they pick apart the bare bones of their minds for your scrutiny and stricture.

And your host, Belladonna Black, is always eager to lend a hand.

The Burlesque Underground brings you it's 25th major production and the third in the Asylum Trilogy, with a raw and relentless exploration of the human psyche...and the demons that lie therein.

But don't worry, they won't bite.
Well...they might.

They're rather hungry tonight.
