It was a little more amateur than I thought it was going to be, but the performances were still very good. I was really impressed with the Live 2 Dance troop and the Body Poets

Description

On Saturday October 10, for one thrilling night, a bit o’ Burlesque presents “Tales from the Dark Side: A Halloween Dance Showcase”, a dangerously delectable collection of performances for your feasting pleasure, featuring a bit o’ Burlesque, Body Poets, Saphira, L.2.D (Live 2 Dance) and Iza Moon Dance Collective at Center Theater at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido.

Packed with frighteningly talented performers from San Diego, this beguiling showcase brings you a cast of sinfully delicious, dark, eerie, devious, and kooky characters in burlesque, hip hop, jazz, fusion, belly dance, and more.

Witness L.2.D (Live 2 Dance) storm the stage in the demented “Jungle Fever” and haunt you in the creepy “Pull My Strings”. Agonize in suspense to see all that Saphira as Scary Poppins has in store for you. Uncover the shrouded mystery and intrigue of the Iza Moon Dance Collective and watch in jaw-dropping awe as the Body Poets venture into the dark realm. a bit o’ Burlesque unearths two mesmerizing tales from their cob-webbed vault and put a spooky twist on two audience favorites. Be tantalized and bewitched by captivating pirates in “The Darkness”. See the over-2000-year-old Tutanfunk’s Traveling Troupe come alive to pay homage to the Two Kings. Try to figure out the mischief and mayhem in “What’s That?” and laugh yourself silly at the wicked antics of “John and Marsha”.  With Captain, the dashing Master of Ceremonies, as your guide and story teller, this book of tales from the dark side, where terror, magic and surprises abound, guarantees a ghoulish good time. Doors open at 7pm which allows plenty of time to enjoy refreshments and shopping in the theater lobby. Show your support and adoration of the performers with a merchandise purchase from their booth or buy the perfect Halloween-inspired gift from Bloodbath Body Products. The show starts at 8pm and is general admission seating. There will be a 15-minute intermission.
