The Demented Dolls of Sideshow
Not Suited For Imitation
"Beautifully weird, breathtakingly artistic, bizarre but very humorous. The international all-lady freak show stunned the audience at K4 Club. The show was organized by Kulturraum Suhl e.V.
What a show! The performances of the five eccentric young ladies from France, the US, Norway and Holland was a stunning mixture of vaudeville, acts you know from the circus and extreme bodily strain presented so magically easy, with a wink of the eye, that you couldn't but not clap for all these crazy presentations. And these five were looking sweet- no butch she-men like you would imagine with their unusual acts.
When women take on such performances, the whole affair takes on quality show characteristics, with music, radiance and glamour. And their feminine charm....
Freak shows, which originated in the US in the 1920s, are quite particular and not for everybody. In K4 Club too, two ladies let the audience staple bank notes to their beautiful bodies, the bed of nails was put to the test and an aluminium milk churn filled with beer was attached to Princess Tweedle Needle's labia piercings and spun around in the air. Women just aren't squeamish, even if the presentation of the own body comes with a obscene undertone.
And because it's all a show- with hard year-long training by the artists, the mock ease: deceptive. At the end of the show, Jenn O. Cide nibbles on some broken glass, making the crunch heard over her head set. In that process she smiles seductively at the audience as if to say, "we're playing with you and your fantasy, and you enjoy the impossible."
The impossible, for example, that is Anaelle Spaghetti, whose body seems to lack bones. The petite French girl twists her limbs in all directions, seemingly lacking a spine as well.
The delicate Betty Bloomerz from the US is a phenomenon like Anaelle. She swallows swords up to 70 or 80 centimetres long, while twirling her hula hoop and laughing coyly at the audience. When she raises her neck you can see the piece of metal sliding down her throat. Tweedle Needle- she was the only woman back in February- pierced her body with long needles again. Accompanied by the Princess of Scars (Norway), this performance was perfected by closely linking themselves to each other with the needles. Needled up, so to say."
