Australia’s queen of burlesque, Imogen Kelly, is bringing her hit sexual satire, Herstory – Leading Ladies, to The Factory Theatre for 2 nights only.
In Herstory, Kelly embodies the world’s most famous leading femmes. They led armies and caused revolutions, were politically blackballed, or had lifestyles so debauched that empires tumbled in their wake.
Not for the faint-of-heart, Herstory is a sexy hour of raunch that features everything from Marie Antoinette desecrating a cake and Lady Diana attacking London, King Kong-style, to a dope addicted Queen Victoria and a very p***ed off Julia Gillard.
Kelly provokes questions about feminism, the media’s portrayal of women and society’s ability to demonise people using comedy, strip tease, saucy stories, dance, aerials, magic and puppetry.
