Here at Vintage Norwich we love a bit of cabaret, so last Friday we eagerly headed down to Norwich Arts Centre to take in the latest contribution to Norwich’s cabaret and burlesque scene, The Gossamer Thread Vaudeville Co and their Curious Cabaret.
The evening was hosted by the glorious Lili La Scala, who we were delighted to catch as we missed her perform at the NNF.
The Gossamer Thread co. consists of mind reader extraordinaire Alex McAleer and hoop artiste Daisy Black. As well as their individual acts they also performed together as Carny & The Tramp, partaking in an unusual romantic evening of razor blade swallowing and dancing on broken glass.
They had also put together a glittering array of acts, from comedy music, to belly dancing, contortionists and burlesque to keep us entertained at the sell out show.
This was the first time Gossamer Thread has put on the Cabaret at the Arts Centre, and we hope they’ll bring it back soon. Any night out that involves watching a man climb through a tennis racket is a must see for us.
After hours DJ Jazzlord kept the party going into the small hours in the bar, as the impeccably dressed crowd partied the night away. Keep an eye on our events calendar and we’ll be sure to let you know when Gossamer Thread returns. In the mean time you can see more photos from The Gossamer Thread Curious Cabaret over on our Facebook page.
