A retro-fetish inspired burlesque act by Celia Bow!

"Raised on a diet of Russ Meyer, Playboy and records, Celia Bow is your ultimate hip-shaking, heartbreaking 1960s dream girl. Combining glamour and sleaze with her natural sex kitten charm, Miss Bow’s acts will leave you absolutely infatuated. When she’s not collecting kinky smut or hanging in smoky beatnik bars, Celia can be seen around town as Melbourne’s go-to Go-Go gal."

What better to celebrate with than... cake?

Marija The Romantic photographed by Jean-Luc Syndikas

"Marija The Romantic is a Melbourne-based performance artist. She is acclaimed for her evocative live explorations of food and erotica, moving through the spectrum of human emotion, teasing and challenging audiences across Australia and the world in unorthodox ways. Marija’s work seeks to liberate what is trapped, whether it is herself from an outfit, a story from a person, or a well of emotion from a captured audience. She regularly hosts themed life-modelling classes with herself as the subject, and often collaborates with organisations and festivals such as Scratch Arts and Burning Seed."
