I actually shot three birds in one stone on the first night photographing for Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival this year. There were two performances and a dance party happened in one night: The Undressing Room, Betcha Thought I Was Dead and an Arabic theme party—Ya Liel.
After The Undressing Room, another show for Mardi Gras bumped in right away at The Factory Theatre. Weird is the word to explain Betcha Thought I Was Dead.
Joan Collins (acclaimed sex therapist, psychic guidance counsellor and mental health professional) tracks down Joylene Thornbird Hairmouth (former Diva, rock goddess and federal senate candidate) in the Wagga Wagga Women’s Maximum Security Psychiatric Correctional Facility where she has been incarcerated for the past 23 years! Find out why and how when Brent Thorpe and Billy O’Riordan join forces to bring their own brand of deranged performance to Sydney audiences.
You might want to check out some images from The Fabulous Punch and Judy Show as well. Betcha Thought I Was Dead is performing at The Factory Theatre until 22 February 2009.
It started off with The Undressing Room with Imogen Kelly:
Imogen Kelly is Australia’s Queen of Burlesque, plaything of millionaires and notorious member of the demimonde. Although she is known as Australia’s premier showgirl- be warned, Imogen is a more of a burlesque saboteur than a museum piece.
The Undressing Room is performing at The Factory Theartre until 22 February 2009.
