This Sunday sees the launch of the 2016 All Nude Cabaret Calendar at Fontaine’s. As a taster of what to expect, photographer Sin Bozkurt has shared some priceless and revealing behind-the-scenes shots he took.
You probably know at least one person who has survived, died of or is suffering from cancer. These days, that, unfortunately, does not make you special. What could make you special is if you decided to do something about this situation, put your time and money where your heart is and take a stand against an amoral killer that doesn’t care where you live, how you take your coffee, who you know, how old you are or how well loved you are.
For the last three years, a fundraising campaign spearheaded by Rose Thorne has put together an annual calendar featuring many of London’s finest cabaret folk. Vaudevillians of all hues have stripped naked before Sin Bozkurt’s lens and helped to compile the All Nude Cabaret Charity Calendar. All proceeds from sales of the calendar are split between Cancer Research and Macmillan Cancer Nurses.
This year’s effort features some of the finest burlesque, musical, drag and sideshow performers out there: Vicky Butterfly, David Hoyle, Kitty Bang Bang, Chi Chi Revolver, Ivy Paige, Laurence Owen, Myra DuBois, Lili La Scala, Urban Voodoo Machine, Nathan Evans, Snake Fervor and Flabbergast Theatre.
Check out their cheeky behind-the-scenes photos below and buy a calendar to see what the final shots look like. Even better, turn up to Fontaine’s on Sunday to buy a copy and get it signed by some of its stars.
