About this event


Leading Ladies

A Romp With Pomp!

They led armies and caused revolutions! They lived in political abstinence or had lifestyles so debauched that empires tumbled to the ground in their wake! These are the Ladies that Lead!

A fun and sexy expose of Western history's most notoriously ill-written femmes. Starring Imogen Kelly, Australia's Queen of Burlesque, World Queen of Burlesque 2012, Herstory is satirical striptease at it's most outrageous.
Herstory features comedy, narrative, song, dance, aerials, magic, short films, puppetry, cake desecration, sumptuous costumes and glorious displays of abandonment in a comedic celebration of outlandish women in power.
