Atomic Bombshells is a collection of burlesque, circus and performance art that explores the decay of glamour in a post-apocalyptic world.
Armageddon is here! In the middle of their yearly fundraising show, a group of bejewelled showgirls get a rude shock at intermission. Nuclear war! Crawling out of the rubble, a new and horrifying assortment of circus freaks, mutants and trash queens perform their own NEW idea of glamour.
The show is made up of two halves – before the bomb and after the bomb. Both halves are made up of individual spots by performers, interspersed by film/projection elements of created archival footage/news documentary.
These performance spots take different forms. From drop-dead showgirls doing burlesque routines to a cockroach lamenting its loneliness in a nuclear wasteland – there’s something for everyone!
The show aims to be a comment on the way we see glamour as a false aspirational ideal, and the need/desire to explore glamour in a world made of cinders and ash.
