The ever-dazzling International Queen of Burlesque, Dita Von Teese, is set to return to Australia this November with the most lavish touring burlesque show in history with her all-new revue, DITA VON TEESE: GLAMONATRIX.
The 10-date tour will start in Perth on the 19 November and will travel across all capital cities, Canberra and the Gold Coast. This will be Dita’s third tour of Australia and follows two previous sold out national runs.
The Glamonatrix burlesque revue takes audiences on a stunning visual journey with one show-stopping performance after another. The uber-glamorous variety show presents extravagant new production numbers from Dita and the cast, with costumes created by famed corset maker Mister Pearl, British designer Jenny Packham, French couturier Alexis Mabille, burlesque icon Catherine D’Lish, Brooke Brothers and more. Shoe aficionados will delight in the extraordinary bespoke footwear by Christian Louboutin.
The Glamonatrix tour boasts no less than four spectacular all-new acts for Dita, each one more lavish than the last. Smothered in Swarovski crystal, she reinvents the classic burlesque “surprise cake” routine with a massive bejeweled cake, freshly served with a delightful whimsicality. For the jaw-dropping Lipteese number, Dita evokes a John Willie retro-fetish dream, riding her giant sparkling lipstick to energetic remixes from her album by French artist Sebastien Tellier and Australian electronic dance artist Andrew Armstrong of the band Monarchy.
In another new act, this raven-tressed Glamonatrix will titillate as a big cat tamer in an erotic twist on vintage circus chic, wielding a crystallised whip while wearing a sparkling Hussar style suit (decorated with well-earned jewelled medals for excellence in striptease, of course!) Fans can also look forward to a thrilling update of her famous martini glass performed with an ensemble cast. Dita will be joined by the most revered performers in burlesque debuting exciting new acts for this tour, including Dirty Martini and Australian star Zelia Rose.
The Glamonatrix tour follows Von Teese’s The Art of the Teese which is the most successful burlesque tour of all time, playing to sold out theatres in cities across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. The Art of the Teese was a triumphant introduction of Dita’s full-length revue to Europe, with audiences clamouring to get tickets. This sensational tour sold out five nights at The London Palladium, graced the stages of opulent historic theaters, with even the Royals in attendance at the Opera Garnier in Monaco.
The Glamonatrix show is a full evening of comedy and sophisticated striptease that celebrates diverse beauty. Far from being a typical burlesque show, Dita elevates and modernises the classic 1940’s variety show, with both male and female forms glorified in a body-positive way that inspires and uplifts.
