“An orgy of glamour and daring…”

Bent is a considered evisceration of all things pretty, fluffy and sweet – a treat from the subversive pulse of Australia. Satirical, sexy and outrageously hilarious, this is where burlesque meets art whilst having a back street dalliance with socially incongruent and a wholehearted disembowelling of heteronormative paradigms.

Australia’s Queen of Burlesque and crowned World Queen of Burlesque presents a diverse cast with theatrical enchantments from the LGBTQAI+ performance underbelly of Australia.

Wild, shocking and delightful, Bent Burlesque never fails to pack a punch – or a fist. This is a ribald event showcasing Australia’s best vajazzle-razzlers blowing you away with their twisted tease, erratic erotica, carnal carnivalia and grotesque burlesque.

Gratuitous, highly skilled, dark glamour.
