Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras presents

Bent Burlesque

16 - 17 Feb 2019

Over two spectacular nights, the inaugural Bent Burlesque will feature the crème de la crème of international and national queer burlesque artists. This is going to be Sydney’s number one event to experience the ever-bending and outrageous world of fabulous queer burlesque.


Featuring direct from the Vienna Boylesque Festival, Jaques Patriach (Vienna), Mr Gorgeous (New York) and Esquire and Jonny Nuriel (Portland) alongside the very best of Australia’s queer burlesque scene.


Your host for this tantalising trip into the world of burlesque queens and king is the award-winning queer queen of cabaret Yana Alana. With an incredible and and powerful voice, Yana is a diva in the true sense – brave, brash, unapologetic and larger than live.


Expect underground cabaret, music, circus, satire, drag and performance art with a wild and eclectic mix of different acts each night.
