Burlesco Notturno, an evening of cabaret and burlesque, will present its latest edition, “Alchemy,” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, at Open Space for Arts & Community.
As in past installations of Burlesco Notturno, Open Space founders Janet McAlpin and David Godsey will take centerstage as the evenings’ emcees, portraying their now familiar characters of the splendid Madame X, and her anxious lawyer.
McAlpin promised a “night of sensuality, ribald humor and bewitching art” at the show.
“Alchemy” will feature performances by burlesque royalty, The Atomic Bombshells — a group founded in the historic French Quarter of New Orleans.
Performers will include Kitten ’N Lou, blending burlesque, theater, and dance; Inga, a winner of the title Miss Exotic World; Moscato Sky, a Latinx, trans-femme and non-binary, classically trained award-winning dancer, educator and choreographer; acclaimed burlesque artist Carson St. Clare; and the contortionist Josey Bends.
The Burlesco Notturno house band, The Love Markets, will also return for the Nov. 4 show.
Influenced by the glittering clubs and decadent music of 1920s Berlin, the band has partnered with theater companies, bands, circus artists, physical theater troupes, choruses, cabaret artists and burlesque artists. They have performed on television, stage, and radio.
