Garnished but not Tarnished
On Saturday night I took a trip into Brisbane with some friends to see Garnished, the newest extravaganza from La La Parlour (I link but their site has some issues). I’d seen their show Tarnished on two previous occasions and it’s a riot of circus, burlesque and very amusing mayhem. Garnished saw two of the La La Parlour performers, Tigerlil and Kellie Vella, teaming up with two male performers Mark Winmill and Rudi Mineur. A number of the La La Parlour members have performed on the now defunct ABC show The Sideshow, as well as at various festivals around the world (including most recently the Adelaide Fringe).
The show itself was great. It was very funny, entertaining, slightly risque and very tongue in cheek. The aerial, acrobatic and circus feats need to seen to believed. The show was set to a great array of music and featured a few choice wigs (the mulleted strong man was par excellence). Costuming was as beautiful (and as saucy) as ever. If any of the shows come your way you should definitely go see them!
