Hosted by one of the twentieth century’s greatest screen icons, German actress and singer Marlene Dietrich, the first program features Joan of Arc, as well as a contemporary goddess of rock ‘n’ roll (think Debbie Harry, Patti Smith, Janis Joplin), and Venus of Urbino, who steps into our world from the sixteenth-century Italian masterpiece by Titian. Without need of introduction is Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, and Lili St Cyr, the notorious striptease artist of the 1940s and 1950s who inspired Marilyn Monroe. Mata Hari, the exotic dancer executed in 1917 for spying during World War I, will use dance to seduce the audience, along with Messalina, affectionately known as the third wife of Roman Emperor Claudius. Finally, Khutulun will make an appearance, daughter of Kaidu and niece by marriage of Kublai Khan and the great-great granddaughter of Genghis Khan. Together with Busby Berkeley Showgirls, Witches, Maypole and special guest artists, this is a night of historic tales and adventure.
Your host of the second program is the Egyptian goddess Isis, joined by the Chinese silent film actress Ruan Lingyu, who died prematurely at the peak of her success in 1930s. Aphrodite and longest-ruling female leader of Russia, Catherine the Great, will share the museum with Salome and Marie Bonaparte, the French author and psychoanalyst, colleague of Sigmund Freud. From the Japanese history of Kabuki , the Living Museum of Erotic Women brings to life Izumo-no-Okuni; the ecstasy of St Teresa of Avila, Christian mystic and writer; and the daring intent of Lola Montez, Spanish dancer and actress. A gaggle of English Tea Party Ladies, the Can-Can Dancers and a special guest artist will complete the program.
