It’s a case of 13, lucky for some, when Swansea’s longest running burlesque and cabaret show, Bluestocking Lounge bring some top international talent to Very Superstitious at the Swansea Grand Theatre Arts Wing, 13 October, 2018.

Heading up the bill, we have the one and only Joe Black. One of the most talented and unique performers on the scene, this gin-addled cabaret darling last impressed the Bluestocking crowd in December 2015, singing a selection of twisted tales and also as half of the fantastically funny Terms Of Unnervement – their rendition of Wicked will go down as one of Bluestocking’s most legendary performances. One of the leading performers in the dark cabaret genre, Joe has toured extensively across the UK, Europe, Australia and America and headlined bills across the world. Performing alongside the likes of Eddie Izzard, Tiger Lillies and Rasputina, Mister Black creates a world where the absinthe is as dark as tar and the surreal is your only reality. Broadway Baby called him “charismatic and downright filthy” and Jonathan Ross says he’s “amazing!” We effing love him! http://www.misterjoeblack.com/

Also on the bill we have the other half of Terms of Unnervement; Arran Shurvinton. Arran is a master of disguise, as graceful as the most beautiful swan ad comes armed with dance feats that regularly leave audiences breathless and on the edge of their seats. Arran is an artist of many talents – costume designer extraordinaire and a model, it’s his talent for comedy and embodying the personas of the unexpected that we love. Look out for his ode to Nosferatu!

Primrose Proper will he heading back to Swansea on a horse, we’re told, and she might even be ‘doing a Godiva’! Since relocating to London, she has performed across the capital at scene hotspots including The Apothecary Cabaret and we can’t wait to have her back. We’re also excited about the return of French fancy Dainty Dorine who will be bringing a great gallic gastronomic burlesque adventure with her.

We have a few more acts yet to be announced, but we hear Lilly Laudanum has been consorting with the likes of Black Phillip and has something VVitchy up her sleeve. We also have a special treat from belly dancers Lazeeza.

Completing the bill, we have one of our favourite ‘burlesque daughters’ Teasy Overeazy, now back in Swansea and also Lilly Laudanum and our Double Ds - Deedee DeLa Rouge and Dawn will be adding a dose of seasonal charm!

And don’t forget to wear your best! We always give a prize for the best dressed!
