Australian Burlesque Festival – Shimmy Shakedown

Photography by Angela McConnell

I was lucky enough to be one of the photographers for the first Australian Burlesque Festival which was held at the start of June in Melbourne and Sydney. It was an amazing opportunity to shoot new performers and all my favourites from the Melbourne scene.

The first show “Shimmy Shakedown” was held at the Blue Diamond which is an absolutely gorgeous venue (awesome mocktails for those who are driving!) and was amazing – I was absolutely blown away by all the performers but my highlights of the night would have to be Pussy Willow with her hilarious housewife shennanigans and Vesper White’s electrifying new act.
