Beating Boredom: A unique Halloween treat
Halloween is nearly upon us and although I’ll be out of the country for my favourite holiday, there might be a few of you out there who still haven’t finalized your party plans. While there are your standard festivities; such as haunted houses or pub-crawls, some of you might be yearning to spice up your celebrations.
Well there’s nothing spicier than the age-old art of burlesque, and as luck would have it, the talented ladies of Calgary’s Kabuki Guns Burlesque, will be strutting their stuff at Dicken’s Pub on All Hallows Eve.
For those unfamiliar to burlesque, this genre of entertainment originated in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, out of the popular music hall and vaudeville acts of the time. It mixes satire, parody, elaborate sets and costumes, and striptease.
According to the KGB’s MySpace page, “Kabuki Guns Burlesque aims to bring the audience back in time to an era when there was still a little mystery, a little intrigue left in sex and sexuality.”
Placing an emphasis on real beauty this isn’t your average strip show; there might even be live snakes involved. So if you fancy a different kind of entertainment then head down to Dicken’s Pub Oct. 30 and check out the KGB in action alongside various other acts reminiscent of the happening 40s and 50s.
