Press release from The Demented Dolls of Sideshow:
“This show is a collection of the most diverse and demented women in the world (Norway, Israel, USA, The Netherlands), combining classic fakir stunts, contortion, and modern sideshow,” says Spaghetti Anaelle, performer.
“As far as we’re aware, this is the first all-female, all-sideshow touring company in the world, and we’re ecstatic to bring our ridiculousness to the United States. In a male dominated industry like the freakshow, it’s important to show that women can do huge stunts and don’t need to rely on burlesque to be onstage,” says Princess Tweedle Needle, founder and performer.
“These ladies lift things with body parts unspoken of in polite company, bend impossibly, swallow swords, eat fire and glass, balance on razor sharp machetes, push needles through every body part imaginable, and MUCH more,” says Betty Bloomerz, Miss Coney Island 2015 and performer.
“After our successful 2015 European spring tour, we are crossing the Atlantic Ocean to invite new audiences to share in our unique brand of madness and mayhem,” says Jenn O. Cide, performer. “This is a chance to showcase the talents of 6 incredibly different performers, combining both the more theatrical presentation of our European performers with the grittier style of our American artists.”
