For a promotional event at Madame Tussauds, we provided a vast array of entertainment to complement their Masquerade theme. We created a bespoke ballet burlesque performance featuring a specially created costume for the dancer. Our dancer appeared from within a giant metal birdcage wearing a black tutu, hot pants and feathers and began a traditional ballet routine on pointes. As the music then moved from the music of Swan Lake to a sassy high-energy pop track, the dancer began her sexy and sophisticated burlesque routine during which she slowly teased the audience whilst removing her Basque, gloves and tutu. Our contortionist then took to the stage and performed her seemingly impossible act which culminates with her squeezing into a tiny Perspex box. These acts performed along with various other strolling acts including a fortune teller, venetian-style living statues and our audio-visual DJ concept Organic Vision was used throughout to provide music and visuals to reinforce the theme. Bespoke Venetian and masquerade imagery – roses, beautifully adorned masks and dancers waltzing were projected onto the walls whilst our electric String quartet dressed in Marie Antoinette via Vivienne Westwood inspired – Stellini together with an Opera singer performed a breathtaking show.
