Much to the delight of eagerly awaiting fans, international burlesque heroine Dita Von Teese locks in first-ever New Zealand dates this December. Featuring an all-new lavish show 'Dita Von Teese: Glamonatrix', she is set to allure audiences with her lineup of dazzling performances in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. With the tour promising to be an invigorating spectacle, tickets to the first dates announced for Auckland and Wellington have been snapped up quickly!
The 'Glamonatrix' burlesque revue takes audiences on a stunning visual journey with one show-stopping performance after another. The uber-glamorous variety show presents extravagant new production numbers from Dita and the cast—with costumes created by famed corset maker Mister Pearl, British designer Jenny Packham, French couturier Alexis Mabille, burlesque icon Catherine D'Lish, Brooke Brothers and more. The tour boasts no less than five spectacular acts for Dita, each one more lavish than the last. Smothered in Swarovski crystal, 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. 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 crystallized whip whilst 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—including NY-based pin-up model, Dirty Martini and AU-born cabaret performer, Zelia Rose.
The 'Glamonatrix' tour follows Dita's sensational revue 'The Art of the Teese' which is the most successful burlesque tour of all time—playing to sold out theatres in cities across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. The show is 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. Always ahead of the curve, Dita's casting has consistently been inclusive, diverse, and multi-faceted, showcasing the talents of male, female, and gender-fluid performers from around the world to create a celebratory show like no other.
"For me, burlesque has always been about finding my own power and confidence, embracing sensuality and encouraging others to do the same in their own lives. Glamour is the art of creating mystery and allure, and the new 'Glamonatrix' show embraces all of these qualities." - Dita Von Teese
