It's june and we're set for a tempest of the most titillating kind when Whipping Up A Storm hits the Arts Wing, Swansea Grand Theatre, June 13.
At the eye of the storm, international blonde bombshell Havana Hurricane hits Swansea, fresh from shaking her stuff on a whirlwind world tour that has taken her to the far corners of the globe, including Australia, Mexico and the USA. Based in the North of England, Havana is an in-demand artist with a repertoire of show-stopping acts and curves to die for! This tantalising twister has earned the title of one of the UK’s premier bump ‘n’ grind performers with an energy that’ll will blow the audience’s mind and is continually nominated in the UK’s top 20 burlesque performers according to 21st Century Burlesque Magazine.
Also causing a storm, internationally renowned Rubyyy Jones. There’s no one quite like her on the cabaret scene – but imagine the lovechild of late, great Leigh Bowery and Ruby Wax and you might be close! Known for her uncompromising style, she’s one part Vegas showgirl, one part Broadway baby and one part drag queen, this Canada native was ranked one of Ontario’s top Triple Threat performers. Debuting at sixteen in The Vagina Monologues, Rubyyy has worked in theatre as an actress, singer, dancer. She also is a writer and was profiled by The Sunday Times magazine in ’13 as an innovator in burlesque performance and production. Often shocking but always hilarious and sassy, as her website says: “Rubyyy is the Queen of Queerlesque and a glittering force of nature.”
We’ll be welcoming back one of your favourite chanteuses, the wonderfully funny Anna Lou. Armed with an accordion and a clutch of naughty songs, this performer from London has been setting the cabaret world ablaze with her French fancies that outline a love of blubber, blood and more… Last time she hit the Bluestocking stage, April 2014, she had the audience in stitches and you’ve been demanding for her return ever since!
There’s still more acts to be announced, but be assured, our resident Lilly Laudanum, fresh from representing Carmarthenshire at the London Burlesque Festival will be bringing some hysterically historical characters to life and we’ll be providing the platform for new talent, too!
Our Double Ds, DeeDee and Dawn will be no-doubt causing more hilarity as they host the evening, and don’t forget to dress for romance - there’s a prize for the best dressed!
