Tickled Fancy Burlesque Co.

 

continued

To me, this feels like the 1980s, when Performance Network was still on Washington (with the pole) and you could see true performance art every weekend. Ah, those were the days.

Next up is Lucy Furr, who's dressed as a little girl. She releases another performer, dressed in a magnificent doll costume, from a giant box. Lucy plays with the doll, undresses the both of them, and then sits wiggling on her lap, facing her. To end, they get into the box together.

My favorite is Cat Atomic - a young woman with alabaster skin who takes the stage to old-timey 1930s music. She's holding two huge red fans, and she wears red lips, high heels with garters, and not much else. With the poise of a smiling 1950s mom, Cat alternately covers herself with the fans and sweeps them away, her long arms reaching out in full extension. She ends her performance by turning to treat the audience to a display of her bare back. It's sensual and elegant.

Tickled Fancy is at the Blind Pig on Thursday, July 17, for a show that begins with a parade to the Pig from somewhere in the Art Fair.
