It is with very great pleasure that we can finally announce a major update to the Euchronia bill, and reveal our new poster (click for large version) - which has a fantastic story of its own involving death-defying feats with Tesla Coils c/o the very talented Peter Terren of Tesla Down Under! But that's a longer story, and deserves an entire post of its own — which we shall bring you very soon, but not today. Today is dedicated to our exciting new international and interstate attractions!
UNDERBELLY DANCER - MELUSINA
Firstly, we would like to introduce the very lovely Melusina, a star dancer and teacher with Underbelly, Victoria's premiere Bellydance school and highly recommended by one of our star acts from 2008, Ma'isah of Raqs Gothique. Read more about Melusina here.
Next, another international artist from across the ditch - Magdalene has performed in fetish clubs in London and NZ and has more recently been making a splash in the NZ burlesque scene. She uses her background in Arabic Dance to create unusual, sometimes beautiful, sometimes horrifying scenes to draw her audience into the emotional landscapes of her performance. More about Madalene here.
Secondly, we are very excited to add to our bill a stunning lass from California, USA - the very talented Ivizia who specialises in awesome fire performance. Read more about Ivizia here.
DIJ DIJOR [SYD]
Fresh from The Steampunk Symposium as part of the Under the Blue Moon festival in Sydney earlier this year, Gentleman Adventurer, Stewart Rule & steampunk maker, Sir Dij Dijor brings to Euchronia a selection of his finest contraptions and inventions for your wonderment and awe. Delight in witnessing the awesome Time Machine! Thrill to the power of the Proto Plasmic Wave Blaster!
DR VELLOCET and his POLYPLASMIC ARCOPHONE (featuring "ELECTRA")
Joining us from the wilds of Western Australia is the very dapper Dr Vellocet and his Polyplasmic Arcophone (Featuring "Electra"). The arcophone is a feat of science, melding electrical energy with sound! Read and see more about the Arcophone at The Artifactory website here.
And finally for this announcement, the return performance of the fantastic SFORZANDO, the 8-piece pirate punk extravaganza whose 2008 Euchronia set blew the audience away. In their words:
"SFORZANDO follow the three ancient rules of piracy.
Rule 1: Respect the music of the ocean.
Rule 2: Find treasure.
Rule 3: Loudly.
SFORZANDO intend to steal steampunks to work on their pirate ship 'The Evil Betty'. You have been warned."
Steampunks, beware indeed!
