Les Coquettes Cabaret Burlesque cranks up the heat under the collars of audiences with frisky cirque du risqué romps of striptease, comedy, and song. On October 28 and 31, the troupe tosses a bouquet of carnal comedy and candid eye candy in their Halloween-themed show, "Bone Orchard Follies." At The Bone Orchard Lounge, a dark and smoky cabaret, teenage outcast Billie ditches her high-school prom to mingle with the club’s colourful clientele of burlesque performers and adventurous insurance adjusters. The cabaret regulars proceed to stage a variety show, which celebrates the pleasures of the flesh and the sensual side of life. Latecomers will not be admitted once the show begins.
Les Coquettes Cabaret Burlesque
The cofounder and artistic director of Les Coquettes Cabaret, Catherine Skinner—known onstage as La Minouche—takes the art of public seduction seriously. In a video posted to the troupe's YouTube channel, she promises, “You'll see a little bit of dancing, a little bit of singing, a little bit of aerial circusry, and a little bit of _very_ tasteful striptease.” Setting comedy and titillation aflutter in a blizzard of double entendres, the troupe puts on shows that appeal to adult audiences of any age or gender. The aesthetic might evoke a Burtonesque gothic setting, the seven sexy seas of the pirate age, a neon-flooded nightclub of the '80s, or the future's inevitable dress code of sentient hairpieces. The company thoroughly impressed Kelli Korducki of The Torontoist, who praised the performers' "undeniable song and dance chops," adding that "cabaret patrons may come for the scantily clad dancers, but they will certainly stay for the talent.”
