The ever-dazzling International Queen of Burlesque, Dita Von Teese is set to visit New Zealand for the very first time this December, where she will debut the most lavish touring burlesque show in history: her all-new revue DITA VON TEESE: GLAMONATRIX.
The Glamonatrix tour boasts no less than four spectacular all-new acts for Dita, each one more lavish than the last. Smothered in Swarovski crystals, she reinvents the classic burlesque Surprise Cake routine with a massive bejeweled cake, freshly served with a delightful whimsicality. For the jaw-dropping Lipteese number, Dita evokes a John Willie retro-fetish dream, riding her giant sparkling lipstick to energetic remixes from her album by French artist Sebastien Tellier, and Australian electronic dance artist Andrew Armstrong of the band Monarchy. In another new act, this raven-tressed Glamonatrix will titillate as a big cat tamer in an erotic twist on vintage circus chic, wielding a crystallised whip while wearing a sparkling Hussar-style suit (decorated with well-earned jeweled medals for excellence in striptease, of course!) Fans can also look forward to a thrilling update of her famous Martini Glass, performed with an ensemble cast. Dita will be joined by the most revered performers in burlesque, debuting exciting new acts for this tour, including Dirty Martini and Australian star Zelia Rose.
Fans can expect a full evening of comedy and sophisticated striptease that celebrates diverse beauty. Far from being a typical burlesque show, Dita elevates and modernises the classic 1940’s variety show, with both male and female forms glorified in a body-positive way that inspires and uplifts.
