Review | Amanda Lancaster
What is licentiousness? A complete disregard for the accepted conventions? Or merely a freeing of oneself from inhibitions? Licentious in name and in nature, prepare to explore the most very base natural animal instincts within. Revamped, red hot and ready to go, meet Ms Mya Tension and her band of burlesque badasses in An Exhibit of the Uninhibited: Licentious.
This is one show that will have you wanting to explore the adventurous side you may not even know you had. Licentious is a sexy sampler of stereotypes stripped away to their purest most intimate forms. This is one show that sets out to not only entertain but educate. Think stripping of clothes whilst simultaneously stripping of stigmas. It’s such a fabulous idea as a social experiment and learning aid and also one of the most fabulously themed and choreographed shows at FRINGEWORLD 2023. Licentious is not only a fantastic demonstration of home grown local talent and teachers in the burlesque field, but also an honest and open look at the types of people and play that goes on upon the stage and behind the scenes of Perth’s biggest kink and fetish scene.
This is one R rated show that does not disappoint, both wholesome and respectful as it walks right up to the line and dances on it and across it but never stepping over it. Consent after all is the number one key component to any kink or personal preference, including both artist and audiences night after night. See whips, crops, feather dusters, props. See puppies and pets, leather and lace and that’s just the start my friends. Have your eyes and minds thoroughly opened to a world of curiosity. So, enter the world of kink and the kinky and get a taste of one FRINGEWORLD 2023 flavour on offer that is anything but vanilla.
Oh, and don’t forget your safe word.
