Mermaid Ondine reports:
As we mentioned in a previous blog post, the Merlesque mermaids performed at Cabaret Roulette earlier in the month, and now we've got the photos back from the talented Katie of Rhinoa's Photography, it would appear that the time is ripe for a blog post!
Cabaret Roulette is a great event, held once a month at Madame Jojo's in London. It's cabaret with a twist - each show has a theme which is chosen in advance by the audience via Facebook and the previous month's live show. Eight different cabaret artists then have two months to create a new act based around that theme.
The Merlesque mermaids were very excited to be a part of April's show! Obviously we were secretly hoping that the chosen theme would be "Underwater", thus making our lives extremely simple, but it was not to be, and instead the theme selected was "Guilty Pleasures"...
So, on the 9th April we duly headed down to London (by train, incidentally... our tails got one or two strange looks on the Tube!) and Madame Jojos.
We had great fun meeting all the other performers for the evening, there was a really creative and diverse set of different acts - and an even more diverse range of guilty pleasures on show!
Of course, thus far you only have my word that any of this is true, so I'll finish by quoting the review by London City Nights: "It's difficult to pin down exactly what's so erotically magnetic about a pair of murderous ukelele wielding half woman half fish girls - I began to suspect it was excavating some long-buried pre-adolescent yearnings for Ariel from The Little Mermaid. These suspicions were confirmed when they launched into a twisted cover of Part of My World mixed up with references to cut-throat capitalism and Karl Marx. Be still my beating heart!"
If you're interested in hiring a mermaid cabaret act (and frankly, who wouldn't be), which we can tailor to your event or theme, contact us now to discuss how we can make your event go with a splash - and a cheeky giggle!
