"These violent delights have violent ends...and in their triumph die, like fire and powder...which, as they kiss, consume."
L'amour...the bane of our existence, our cross to bear, and the single most deadly poison besides politics and religion.
Join the Black Family for a devilish post-Valentine's Day night of anti-convention sentiment and salacious satire as they celebrate (and lament) that crazy little thing called love.
No-one pays homage to Saint Valentine like Jasper Black and his associates...amongst those in the know, their notorious romantic shenanigans are the talk of the town. From objectophile weddings to incestuous liaisons, bizarre love triangles to the sexual assault of the family skeletons; and a renowned anti-Valentine audience participation segment that will change the way you view love (and hate) forever...My Bloody Valentine is the perfect alternative to this year's warm and fuzzies.
But hold onto your hearts.
It’s gonna get messy.
Featuring live performances by the Black Family's finest artistes, plus an exclusive chance to rub shoulders with some of Melbourne's wickedly elite, this is one night to leave your inhibitions at the door and get in the mood for a whole lotta love.
Dress (or undress) to express, sharpen your talons and get ready for an evening of sinfully Dark Cabaret, Burlesque and Erotica in the Adult Playground!
It's burlesque with bite.
