BOYlesque Sizzles with Mod Carousel

If you're under the impression that burlesque is all about the ladies, you're wrong. Boylesque, the male version of burlesque, will be hitting the Broadway Performance Hall again this spring during the festival. Mod Carousel, a boylesque troupe, struck internet fame this year with their gender-swapped parody of 'Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke. Lucky for us, we can stop watching their YouTube video and check them out live this spring. Get the details below and grab your tickets soon!  

Mod Carousel is a multidisciplinary boylesque collective featuring the talents of the Luminous Pariah, Paris Original, and Trojan Original. Mod C has performed regularly since their founding in 2010. With over 50 shows in Europe and Australia and countless US performances under their belt, Mod C shows no signs of stopping their antics any time soon. 

Trojan Original

The Red-Hot Manimal

A classically trained dancer, Trojan Original is best described as “…what would happen if a cartoonist captured the disciplined essence of Baryshnikov and the campy styles of a self-aware Schwarzenegger.” His unique approach involves witty satire surrounding the incarnation of the modern male and a healthy does of over-the-top machismo to keep things lighthearted and hysterically funny. He is here to challenge and promote the very concept of what it means to be male.

Performance Dates:
April 4 @ 10:30pm
April 5 @ 10:30pm


Paris Original                  

Poetry in Motion

A professional dancer, Paris Original is poetry in motion as he exudes the graceful elegance of balletic beauty. Paris calls on his extensive experience in many forms of dance and theatre to craft his unique style of Burlesque. Possessing a statuesque aesthetic, he utilizes his affinity for movement and creative costuming to captivate, inspire and capture the hearts of audiences wherever he goes.

Performance Dates:
April 4 @ 7:30pm
April 5 @ 10:30pm

The Innovative Adonis

Luminous is a Seattle-based internationally recognized burlesque ingénue who celebrates life through multidisciplinary performance art. A brilliant mélange of saucy satire, witty comedy, avant garde artistry, and tantalizing tease. Mr. Pariah draws upon his extensive background in physical theatre and dance to bring you inspirational showcases that are designed to celebrate the thrilling highs and questionable lows of the kooky world we live in.

Performance Dates:
April 4 @ 10:30pm.
