Welcome to the first night of Husets Biograf´s 2-day Burlesque series done in partnership with Golden Days Festival whose theme this year is "the B-side" of life. In its original form “Burlesque” was a low and vulgar entertainment that decent folk would never patronize, and hence a fitting inclusion in the festival's platter of “B-side” delights. Join us as we delve into the spirit of old-school and neo-Burlesque with a series of films, live music and dance performances that take us back into the heart and soul of the artform as it was experienced from the 20s to the 50s. (
And don´t miss the show tomorrow with more live dancers
and a live band - tickets for that on a separate billetto page: BURLESQUE AT THE B-SIDE, DAY 2.) Contact Jack, our house manager, at
email@example.com if you have any questions at all.
18:30 = Cinema cafe opens
19:30 = Several entertaining outtakes of Burlesque dance performances from old 35mm feature films.
Live performer: Sophie Sioux: Glamourous and filled with humour, colourful and dangerous! Sophie Sioux balances all genres of sexy with a glint in the eye and an attitude that reaches beyond the stage and into people’s hearts. She's a sweetheart rascal with a twisted mind! Links here:
21.00 = "TOO HOT TO HANDLE" (ON 35MM!) WITH JAYNE MANSIELD, 1960, 90 min., directed by Terence Young. This English neo-noir gangster thriller was advertised as "an exposé of sexy, sordid Soho, England's greatest shame.” The film was notorious in its day thanks to Mansfield's risqué see-through costuming and racy musical numbers. We follow a cast of innocent and not so innocent young women as they ply their trade in Soho´s “Pink Flamingo Club,” performing some amazing dance numbers and getting involved with brutal gangsters. A recreation of sleazy London now gone forever (sob!).
