Headdresses, Color Scheme Deadline and Additional Costuming

We use only performers in the Body Art Cabaret (no models) and for that reason, all headdresses will be custom designed on an individual performer basis, in the artists’ color theme. Light weight, comfortable to wear and easy to perform in head pieces are what we create. Due to ethical concerns, we use only cruelty-free feathers in our headdresses if feathers are used at all.

Our theme is vintage cabaret however artists are free to paint whatever they would like. Artists are required to use only non-toxic materials, adhesives and/or body paint. No latex prosthetics will be allowed. Hair and make-up artists will be available on site for last minute needs.

All female performers must wear pasties, which we can provide. For artists using custom pasties, no latex is permitted as it can cause an allergic reaction on some performers.

Performers will wear boy short briefs, or for men a dance strap if preferred. Men wanting to use a dance strap must provide their own. Keep in mind that what you wear will be painted on and the color may or may not wash out. Performers should provide their own footwear suitable for performing in.

Performance Info

All performers will be chosen by Body Art Cabaret talent scouts. Artists and performers will be paired three to four weeks prior to the show. Only one performer per artist is allowed. All artists and performers will be required to sign a contract and photo release stating their commitment to participating in the event.

Each performer will have about 2 minutes on stage to perform their skill and display the body art. Additionally there will be a 60 second period after each performance when the performer will stand on a rotating pedestal so that the audience can best view the body art. Performers will improvise their act to vintage themed music (1920’s-1940’s) that our DJ will provide.

In order for performers to be ready for a high-energy performance in the evening, they should be given a 5 minute break per hour, specifically for stretching.

Assistants and Comps

We do not have assistants for artists. We simply do not have the space to accommodate any more bodies in the venue during the show. Due to the small size of this venue, no complimentary tickets can be given for this event.
