Dazzle Troupe brings you - The Burlesque Inquisition

From the madcap team that brought you 'Burlesque Blitz' and a number of other Burlesque shows you may have caught on the island (or rather, that your friends caught and then made you feel bad for missing) comes yet another night of raunchy high-concept tomfoolery, this time traveling all the way back in time to the Middle Ages (or is that the Renaissance? You'll forgive us for the historical discrepancy - we never really were sticklers for this sort of thing)! 

Taking place at the highly 'evocative' venue of the Knigret Knight Club in Rabat, the Dazzle Troupe brings you 'The Burlesque Inquisition' - a show that does what it says on the tin. Actually no, it doesn't. Nobody is getting executed. Or are they? 

Picture the scene: a 'holy men' are charged with judging a group of heretics. Will they forgive their sins, or consign them to hell by auto-da-fe (that's 'human matchstick' for those not in the know). 

The heretics will dance, sing, a…

What you Will - A Sea Dog`s Tale

Based on Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare

"Where do you get your ideas?" is a question that most authors get asked during their career.  What if someone had asked the same question to William Shakespeare?  Where did he get his ideas from?  His plays have an incredible range for a glove-maker's son from Stratford-Upon-Avon, an issue that has long been contended.  This play does not try to answer the authorship debate, but it does explore one possible answer to the question of his inspiration. 

Young Will Shakespeare tries to convince a band of Sea Dogs to let him sail away with them, and in the course of an evening he is told a tale of love and intrigue, disguise and song, dukes and fools, shipwrecks and plots. Using ropes, barrels, storytelling, shadow-theatre and anything else that comes to hand, the actors will conjure the audience into the heart of a storm where twins are torn asunder and shipwrecked sailors are tossed upon a foreign shore.  This captivating and ima…
