Lola & Layla celebrates the incredible Western Australian performance artist, Lola Moore. She is a pint-sized burlesque performer, lover of laughter, and curator of creativity. A long-time performer with Lady Velvet Cabaret, she has graced stages from London to Auckland, Perth to Pannawonica. Meanwhile, her mild-mannered alter ego Keren Schlink is the creator and writer of recurring Fringe show Pupperotica, starring (among others) the lovely Layla; sultry songstress and connoisseur of genital euphemisms.

Lola exudes a classic sensuality and a wild sense of comedy, honoured here in the decadent (and humorous) nod to Ingres.
