A DELICIOUS DICHOTOMY OF COMEDY, CABARET & BURLESQUE
Vintage inspired cabaret with a filthy contemporary twist
Bawdsville Cabaret was borne in 2011; the love-child of Unruly Scrumptious and her incestuous alter-egos.
With the name snatched from the belly of an unﬁnished musical, a handful of vaudevillian sketches and an ever-growing bunch of cabaret misﬁts, the Bawdsville journey began…
Mistress of Bawdsville;
compere and keeper of many voices;
would be jester,
suffering fabulously from a cabaret multiple personality disorder;
the driving force of the good ship Bawdsville.
Bijou sultry seductress,
the Mademoiselle of Bawdsville,
petite French clown, ﬁre artist,
angle-grinding goddess, aerialist,
burlesque and circus performer.
Pi the Mime
An ethereal being ﬂoating above the echelons of time;
a mischievous traveller amongst the clouds,
drag teller of boylesque stories
Miss Good Ness Gracious
shape-shifter chanteuse of sing & fling,
This silly faced seductress is as cute as a button.
A button that refuses to stay done up.
The Higgs-Bosen of burlesque;
the honey badger of surreal sensual cabaret and the sum of all her wrong parts.
BAWDSVILLE: Light & Dark
Bawdsville has two creative strands to its cabaret; the light and the dark.
Should your taste be sequins, feathers and vintage satire Bawdsville can provide this with a twist.
And if you prefer your cabaret a little darker and with a touch of poison then your debauched needs will also be catered to.
Incorporates old vaudevillian, showgirl and jazz themes, based on musicals and homages to classic movies of a bygone age.
Bawdsville takes you backstage in showgirl dressing rooms, gives you musical spoofs and satirism all blended together in a delicious cocktail of kitsch.
Is carnival inspired and a violently passionate dissent into all that is gloriously malevolent and broken. Incorporating circus ﬁre, horror, side-show, with dark twisted sketches, transformative burlesque and cabaret to inﬂict its dark bacchanalian pleasures.
