SuicideGirls: Blackheart Burlesque

Media Title

What defines beauty? In an age of popularized body modification, its more conventional definitions have shifted—thank heaven—to include more alternative visages. SuicideGirls, the widely popular website that features such beauties, promotes the concept of models having control over how their beauty is portrayed; as a result, the site and the girls themselves continue to build a staggering fan base. And, after a six-year hiatus, its Blackheart Burlesque is back to aid and abet those worthwhile efforts.

Combining the glamour of pin-up poise, tongue-in-cheek humor, the edge of industrial subculture and a kind-hearted jab at pop culture, the Blackheart Burlesque show created a niche for itself in the early 2000s heyday. In fact, they completed five North American tours opening for a bevy of heavy-hitting rock talents. After a six-year hiatus from the stage, veteran choreographer Manwe Sauls-Addison—who has worked with such artists as the late, great Michael Jackson, Beyonce and Lady Gaga—is bringing new performances and updated music to the BB production hoping to scintillate and satisfy fans.

To enthrall their audiences further, the SuicideGirls even throw a little nerd in there, incorporating elements from Game of Thrones, Star Trek, The Avengers, Planet of the Apes and many other geek favorites. So, if you want to see stunningly gorgeous dancers sporting Stormtrooper helmets and toting lightsabers, here’s a night out that promises not to disappoint. / Kennedy Allen
