Saucy Little Secret

Lashes will be in a flutter at the Perth International Burlesque Festival as tassels tease and waists are so tightly cinched that breasts have no choice but to heave. Just as those dangerous curves are barely restrained, audiences will also be bursting with glee at The Spiral with Judith Lucy and her comrade Denise Scott.

Those juices will continue to flow with the 16th Spanish Film Festival with the ultimate femme fatale Catherine Deneuve in Tristina. Or indulge in the voyeuristic delights of The Artist and the Model, where model Merce is seduced by the wife of aging artist Marc Cros to model for his final masterpiece; how very continental.

Pay homage to our female predecessors in the art exhibit Towards Perth: WA Women Artists before 1950 and see their modernistic depictions of Perth. Be held in rapture at the intriguing Van Gogh, Dali and Beyond: The World Reimagined, which includes Frida Kahlo’s self-portrait.

Dreamy Grace Knight croons and swoons. Also at the Ellington Jazz Club A Saucy Little Secret serenades the tales of five Harlem women while guests done 1920’s black and white garb.

So inspired you’ll be compelled to write in Writing Fiction – Getting Started: A workshop with Amanda Curtin or The Glint of Light on Broken Glass: Short Story Writing with Susan Midalia. Or maybe channel Brooke from Other Desert Cities who pens an expose on her family’s past.

Just as Sea Inside turns theatre on its head with its aerial skills and audio-visual projection, so too will the Perth Winter Arts Season 2013.

I’ll be guest blogging for the City of Perth Winter Arts Season 2013 and here’s my profile. Maybe I’ll see some of you there?
