Featuring stars of the Vienna Boylesque Festival
Directed by Imogen Kelly
Hosted by Yana Alana

Over two spectacular nights, the inaugural Bent Burlesque will feature the crème de la crème of international and national queer burlesque artists. This is going to be Sydney’s number one event to experience the ever-bending and outrageous world of fabulous queer burlesque. Featuring direct from the Vienna Boylesque Festival, Jacques Patriaque (Vienna), Mr Gorgeous (New York) and Isaiah & Johnny (Portland USA) in a fruit cocktail of some of the very best and emerging artists of Australia’s bent burlesque scene, including Australian circus superstar Jess Love. Your host for this tantalising trip into the world of burlesque queens and kings is the award-winning queen of queer cabaret Yana Alana.

With an incredible and powerful voice, Yana is a diva in the true sense – brave, brash, unapologetic and larger than life. Expect underground cabaret, music, circus, satire, drag and performance art with a wild and eclectic mix of different acts each night. For ages 18+ Full line-up to be announced at mardigras.org.au
