There is always a bit of fringe happening in our scruffy little city and we want to make it easy for you to find the fringe in your community. Here is a curated list of events happening this week.
Salomé Cabaret Burlesque Review: Flame Cynders
April 15, 11pm at Edge Knox
Join Salomé Cabaret for a fiery hot burlesque revue with Atlanta’s Flame Cynders! The starlet that would one day become Flame Cynders began her journey into performance at the tender age of four, studying classical ballet, tap and jazz dance. Her love of movement coupled with years of vocal training afforded her many opportunities to perform throughout the world and to gather a strong sense of style all her own. She has taught her burlesque classes internationally, has run the Fishnet Follies School of Burlesque in Los Angeles, and is the Co-Creative Director of the Atlanta School of Burlesque in Atlanta. In Los Angeles, she Produced, Art Directed, and contributed to costume design and construction for many of sold out shows of the Fishnet Follies Burlesque Revue, for which she continues to serve as Emeritus Art Director. Flame Cynders aspires to help every woman portray strength, self-reliance, confidence and power through sensual movement; to break free of judgement and create a safe place to explore the more feminine side of dance. Burning up stages all around the world, it’s Flame Cynders! For more information and to purchase tickets, visit salomecabaret.com.
