BURLESQUE IN POST-APOCALYPTIC MALTA? WHY NOT!

Creative Island’s sexy, satirical burlesque show with music, dance and downright absurdities that escape definition sees a return to its 11th edition after a four-year hiatus. The makers of the legendary show promise it will be weirder, grungier, and more sinister than ever before.

Those who enjoy something different, who relish in the wacky, and who bask in the satirical, will enjoy its post-apocalyptic setting. The enormous weight of the construction boom has caused the island to collapse. The only people t0 remain are the filthy dregs of society. Culture, however, is booming with sinister priests, voodoo goddesses, feline slaves and flesh-eating virgins luring victims into their beautifully twisted cabaret.
