AN EVENING BURLESQUE PERFORMANCE WITH MISS TOSH
Featuring the Exquisite Lingerie of the Department of Curiosities
Saturday, April 1st, 2017 - 8PM
$18 General Admission / $15 VPES Members
We invite you to an evening with Miss Tosh who will perform two of her renowned Burlesque acts on the Panorama stage. The first act brings to life the dark tropical lingerie of the Department of Curiosities collection, as we watch Miss Tosh try on different pieces according to their identities: the Starlet, the Vamp, the Noir Temptress ...
For the second act, Miss Tosh will perform her iconic fan dance, influenced, as is the Department of Curiosities line, by the luminous women of the 1920s-40s, such as the magnificent Sally Rand. Post-performance, Miss Tosh will entice attendees to the garden for a tea reception, with time for guests to peruse the Department of Curiosities collection and to spend time with Miss Tosh in a more intimate manner.
The program will begin at 8PM and doors will open at 7:30PM.
The Department of Curiosities is a collection of slow fashion luxury lingerie and nightwear created and sold in-house. The collection features a dreamy, dark tropical print influenced by the rain forest flora of Costa Rica, hand-drawn by tattoo artist Esther Garcia, and woven in the Lake Como region of Italy.
Miss Tosh is a performance artist who combines her love for The Golden Era of Cinema with her love for fashion. Her performances challenge tropes of femininity and notions of the erotic, while always leaving the audience dazzled, dazed and wanting more.
