Event info

In Flagrante, meaning ‘Caught in the Act’, is a modern, sassy and beautifully deviant take on today’s burlesque revival. Six exquisite dancers ‘caught in the act’ with a fetish for leather, nudity in public and a wild equestrian spirit.

In Flagrante is 11 short pieces set to the music of quirky Austrian cabaret group Waldeck’s ‘Ballroom Stories’. The dancers draw you deeper into their dark world as each piece develops.

The creator of this sultry show is MaryJane O’Reilly, New Zealand’s legendary contemporary dance exponent and co-founder of the ‘before its time’ Limbs Dance Company, whose exuberant signature style was their highly developed sense of satire, superb technical execution and genius for slapstick physical theatre.

This is a very sexy romp through some deliciously dark territory.

If you’re a contemporary dance fan you’ll adore the captivating choreography and precise physical and cerebral execution. Be prepared to be surprised - if not a little shocked. If you’re not a dance fan you’ll love the gorgeous sculpted dancers, the humour, music and daring minimal costumes. A fresh look at burlesque, in all is slick, naked darkness and glory.

“I wanted to challenge the orthodoxies of burlesque female sexuality; that women are capable of being bad, not just coquettish avatars,” says MaryJane

The result is a truly unique burlesque experience.

“The humour, intelligence and sexiness shone through…. Totally slick and well-thought out….” - Michelanne Forster, Playwright

“The most captivating solo is Megan Smith's brilliant ‘Police Officer Hot-Dogging’. Her dance mixes precision timing with comedic elements to leave the audience wanting more”. - Theatreview, Jack Gray

In Flagrante is set to be a very popular show during The REAL New Zealand Festival so book early. This show sold out in Auckland and will sell out here.

Contains nudity.
