With a heaving crowd of dolled-up beauties, La Fête Fatale’s aim is to steal burlesque back from
the mainstream. London’s blonde bombshell Chrys Columbine provided a classic example of striptease, which was later followed up her compelling but inaccurate Freddy Krueger impersonation – happily she just doesn’t have the skin for it.
Meanwhile, Berlin’s slinky siren HayDee Sparks often seemed close to immersing herself in A Nightmare On Elm Street-esque inferno during her saucy fire dance, while Hamburg’s Hedoluxe offered a dazzling show
that evoked the hardship and tragedy of spending every waking moment clad in a silver body suit. Judging
by tonight’s standards, the club’s plan is working devilishly well.
