Amazing talent rolled into a series of seduction and empowering movements, inspired by the glamorous world of burlesque, Fafi D'Alour and The Delinquents is a show not to be missed this Fringe season! Fafi is a sultry temptress whose passion is dance and choreography, making her long-time ambition of creating a Fringe Festival show a reality.
The act showcases dance fields of cabaret, ballet and jazz as the performers have mastered the art of burlesque and sensual choreography with stunning performances throughout the show, you'll be in awe of the talent you're witnessing. This show brings together the tunes of soul, jazz and blues with music inspirations of Etta James, Nina Simone and Aretha Franklin, feeling like you're in a 1950's jazz bar in Southern America.
Fafi has been dancing since she was a little girl, and now teaches and choreographs at a variety of schools and has performed alongside musical theatre legends, on TV, in music videos and has competed across Australia. At just 19 years old, she's got enough talent in one finger than most people do in their entire bodies, and along with her Delinquents, uniquely execute female empowerment and alluring seductions. This is a show of confidence, girl power, mystery and desire.
Fafi D'Alour and her Delinquents Georgia van der Sman and Emily Raymond work together to bring you a show that you must-see. They are joined on stage by jazz singer Amy Heather whose talent soars above and beyond many singers of today; her wide range of vocals captivates you, and her passion for jazz music comes from deep within. Overall this show is flawless from start to finish, and will have you leaving with a smile on your face and classic jazz tunes stuck in your head.
