The UK’s longest-running burlesque show comes to The Lowry next week, promising a scintillating night out of sparkling entertainment.

Blending stylish cabaret, comedy, music, circus and burlesque, An Evening of Burlesque sees world-class entertainers take to the Salford stage for a sense-igniting extravaganza on Wed 2 Aug.

Burlesque star Isabella Bliss is one of the many performers featured in the hit stage show, and has shared how the artform has been so empowering for women.

“It’s a way of owning who you are on stage – and the freedom of the way you can express yourself though your act and engage with other people. Lifting the energy of a room is like magic. It’s powerful being up there giving it your all and knowing people are there with you having a ball.

“The empowering bit is not really in the strip but in sharing with others what you have created as an act – but, also being unapologetically yourself and proud in your own skin.”

Isabella, whose act involves a 5ft champagne glass and giant stiletto, also discussed the recent renaissance of burlesque: “We all need escapism from the challenges and trials of life. Vaudeville and cabaret have always been that escape for people: the chance to slip into a world of glitz, glamour and comedy is the perfect mental break for people from the pains of life.

“I would most certainly say that having everyone locked up so long has given people a new-found appreciation of going out to see a show. People have remembered the importance of how it feels to be in a theatre, laughing with others.”
