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 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 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 clamoring to get tickets. This sensational tour sold out five nights at The London Palladium, graced the stages of opulent historic theatres, with even the Royals in attendance at the Opera Garnier in Monaco.
“With the success of my last tour of Europe, I came home more inspired than ever and got straight into building new acts. I am coming back with an even bigger show than I’ve ever toured with before. Being in these historic theaters with audiences coming dressed to the nines, creates this incredible atmosphere unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. For me, burlesque has always been about finding my own power and confidence, embracing sensuality and encouraging others to do the same in their own lives. Glamour is the art of creating mystery and allure, and the new “Glamonatrix” show embraces all of these qualities,” says Von Teese.
She continues, “I feel so fortunate that burlesque has come to symbolize a celebration of beauty and sensuality in many forms, a place where unlikely icons take the stage and inspire others. I’m proud to be a part of the modern burlesque movement and I’m grateful to have the chance to tour with performers that change people’s minds about striptease.”
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 modernizes the classic 1940’s variety show, with both male and female forms glorified in a body-positive way that inspires and uplifts.
Always ahead of the curve, Dita’s casting has consistently been inclusive, diverse, and multi-faceted, showcasing the talents of male, female, and gender-fluid performers from around the world to create a body-positive, celebratory show like no other.
As the consummate performer in modern burlesque, Von Teese’s exhilarating live shows are world-renowned and draw fans from every corner of the globe. With over a million tickets sold, and an unprecedented quality of production in burlesque, it is clear why Von Teese’s self-produced tours are the gold standard of the modern burlesque revival, with devoted fans that include A-list celebrities.
