Make a note in your diary for the second international Berlin Burlesque Festival 2014. Last year the festival was a complete success, bringing burlesque acts from around the world to perform at this special event. It’s hosted by Else Edelstahl, who is known for the 1920s themed party Bohème Sauvage and wild burlesque party La Fete Fatale. Also hosted by Burlesque dancer Marlene von Steenvag. I’ve had the pleasure to work with both these ladies and they know how to throw a party!
This years event will be in a few different venues and starts off on THURSDAY October 2nd – Newcomer Night, where press and performers get a chance to meet and greet. Doors open at 9pm and show starts 10pm at Heimathafen.
