After 7 years on the road and tens of thousands of audience from Auckland to Edinburgh, Melbourne to The Seychelles… In Flagrante – MaryJane O’Reilly’s neo burlesque masterwork – just keeps on getting better.
Like a great band the show has established a base of passionate patrons who come time and again and newcomers to the show experience provocation and sexual politics on the edge of outrage… and the outrageously funny.
MaryJane has achieved this by continually taking risks, weaving in new content and juxtaposing satiric ideas with her theme of female empowerment beyond any contrite or predictable views on the subject, adding in new music and fiendishly clever choreography around the central soundscape of Klaus Waldeck’s smoky covers album ‘Ballroom Stories’.
After a successful visit last year In Flagrante has been invited back to the Butterfly Club for another outrageous season of thought provoking burlesque. Music by Nick Cave, Chinese Man, Prokoviev and David Lynch as well as Waldeck – the music and dance come together to entertain and stimulate audiences again!
