"Look to your neighbors...to your friends,
Look to your daughters...to your wives,
You must release them to our care...you are endangering your lives,
Let us relieve you of your burden...from the fear you’re living in,
Protect yourselves from their corruption,
From their wickedness and sin..."
- Emilie Autumn 'We Want Them Young.'


Step right up...ladies and gentlemen may I have your attention please...come see the finest oddities of ostracized anomalies, the broken, the beaten and the bereft, here for your entertainment, astonishment, and apathy.

Delve into the most fractured of minds and traverse a wonderland of the wretched, where the past, present, and future collide in a cacophony of demented despair, reflected in a cracked mirror of tormented souls and half-remembered nightmares.

But don't be afraid, within the hallowed halls of hysteria, a precious collection of delectable heathens awaits...to bare their bodies and their souls as they pick apart the bare bones of their minds for your scrutiny and stricture.

And your host, Belladonna Black, is always eager to lend a hand.

The Burlesque Underground brings you it's 25th major production and the third in the Asylum Trilogy, with a raw and relentless exploration of the human psyche...and the demons that lie therein.

But don't worry, they won't bite.
Well...they might.

They're rather hungry tonight.

Note: The Burlesque Underground is strictly for adults 18+. PSYCHOMANTEUM will contain gore, horror, simulated violence, simulated sexual violence, simulated drug use, partial nudity, simulated self-harm, coarse language, discussion and depiction of mental illness, and images, concepts and themes that may trigger or offend.

Dress: Erotica couture - Formal or Glam Gothic - High-class Fetish. Medical and supernatural inspired Fetish (doctors and nurses, thrillseekers, oddity purveyors, spirits of the dead). Gothic Lolita. Dress to express or impress. No sneakers, denim, caps or anything else that's going to make you look like a classless Bogan. The illusion of class is everything.
