Coming up…Up & Coming, Upstairs at Arthur’s.


31st May 2014


Dublin Burlesque Festival is very proud to present “Up and coming – upstairs at Arthur’s”.


Up and coming is a series of events designed to encourage new acts into the burlesque scene and allow space for experiment and opportunity to trail new ideas.  The gigs will be informal and friendly and aimed at making the burlesque scene in Dublin even better.


These events are an opportunity for those with new acts or those who have not performed in a Burlesque setting to try out new material in front of an audience which will include at least two industry professionals who will critique their performance and provide feedback.  The audience will also have an opportunity to provide constructive criticism for each act in writing if they wish.

We are interested in all kinds of acts from classic burlesque to very alternative neo burlesque.  We are also interested in singers, musicians, circus acts, comedians and those interested in hosting.


Any performer, musician or host who would like to be involved should contact us with an outline of their act.  There will be approximately 5 acts per event.


The gigs are free to audience members but will be guest list only. If you are interested in a place in the audience you should email dominiquedivine@hotmail.com  with the subject line Audience.
