Review | Laura Money
Enter the decadent Edith Spiegeltent for a witching hour like no other – Little Death Lates is the debaucherously glamorous older sister of Dead Man Label’s Little Death Club. Dead Man is the champion of the punks, freaks and weirdos – and legendary host Bernie Dieter sweeps all of the kinky strangers under her glittery-feathered wing for a night of song, dance, and weird shit!
Dieter is Kabarett incarnate – a perfectly corrupt Sally Bowles – every inch the entertainer. A boozy haze fills the spiegeltent as Dieter commands attention – splitting the very atoms of smoke to take centre-stage. Part Velma Kelly, part Frank ‘n’ Furter – all sexy, Dieter is the ultimate host. She sings with a throaty, Dietrich timbre – rich and full. Her songs are all funny and clever and above all, sexy.
If you’ve never sat in a tent in the middle of Northbridge fondling a stranger’s leg, then this is your chance! Little Death Lates taps into our desires and fantasies. It takes your inhibitions and leaves them at the door. Dieter nurtures your inner kinks and encourages you to fly your freak flag. The acts are all hand-picked – they are the weirdest, freakiest, sexiest, and most awesome acts from all around FRINGEWORLD 2019.
Little Death Lates will tear you limb from limb and then put you back together again. It is the most fun you’ll have all fringe – because who wants the party to end? Certainly not Bernie Dieter! So, farewell the evening and chase the dawn in this wonderful night of sexy sin and scandal.
