spiegeltent limbo unhinged

Christie and I watched LIMBO UNHINGED, this burlesque show in the Spiegeltent during the Brisbane Festival.

What I remember most was Heather Holliday: this beautiful, curvy lady with lots of tattoos who put all sorts of things in her throat and pulled them back out. One of the first things she put down her throat was a sword of some sort. Then she put two in there, and then three. When she pulled them back out there was a trail of saliva (I think) that clung onto the edge of their blades. She grinned and licked them back up.

I felt like an old man, wincing at her and wondering why her insides weren’t damaged.

“Could you do that?” I asked Christie. “Why can’t you do that?”

She smiled and said nothing.
