Cabaret / Burlesque
Scaled guide icon nov
What a glorious feeling! Our star-studded line-up of burlesque beauties is ready to blow you away with storytelling surrounding their experiences with chronic illness and disability. From hilariously sarcastic or teasing seduction to gut-wrenchingly relatable, our performers are here to say one thing: listen up!

Hosted by the big mouthed, big busted Diana Divine and starring local cabaret stars, up and coming burlesque babes, and from the USA, Miss Disa-burly-tease herself Jacqueline Boxx. This is a show for adults of all backgrounds. Prepare for three wild nights of burlesque, cabaret, and catharsis at Nexus Arts Venue.


Presented by:
Diana Divine

The producer of Adelaide burlesque troupe "The Justass League" and lifelong lover of the stage, Diana Divine, began producing with "Dawn of Justass" in 2016. Since then, Diana has developed multiple ongoing productions with "The League", eventually developing "Singin' in the Pain", a 'disability and chronic illness cabaret', and long-time personal goal, for Adelaide Fringe's 2019 season.
