HOB FRESH is a regular Burlesque night presented by the graduates of the House of Burlesque Academy. FRESH was created by Tempest Rose, as a mentoring scheme to help bridge the gap between completing a burlesque course, and performing at larger scale professional nights.
It gives graduates the opportunity to gain experience producing a show, perform in a supportive environmnent, and gain a deeper understanding of all the facets that go into a Burlesque show both on and off stage. Each FRESH show has a theme, and all performers. compere, and stage managing / door team are previous graduates. except for 2 guest performers.
FRESH began in Nov 2017 and had a residency at The Rolling Stock in Dalston for over a year before moving to The Albany in Great Portland Street. The next two FRESH shows will be Oct 27th 2019 and Dec 1st 2019, with themes TBC. There is a HOB FRESH Facebook page, where you can keep updated on the latest callouts for submissions, and event info.
HOB FRESH was a launch pad for The Sex Ed Show which has since developed into a regular House of Burlesque show with a performance at Concrete Shoreditch in March 2019, and two upcoming performances at the RVT on Sep 12th and Oct 17th.
