City Slang: Manic Pixie Dream Show at Corktown Tavern



Local performance artist/clown Satori Circus will join adopted Detroiter and Pennsylvania native Hayley Jane, burlesque dancer extraordinaire, at the Corktown Tavern on Friday, July 9, for the Manic Pixie Dream Show.

According to the press release, “Hayley Jane returns to Detroit for her first performance since The Dirty Show last February. This tantalizing performer mixes burlesque and her original music together for a scintillating show. Originally from a tiny town in Pennsylvania, Hayley is "Made in Detroit" and considers the Motor City her adopted home. Her friends and fellow burlesque ladies, Polly Glamorous and Chloe Bowie, along with comedian John Wray will be sharing the stage with her at this show.”

“Satori Circus is a nationally acclaimed performance artist and recipient of the "Outstanding Live Performance" award in the 2012 Detroit Music Awards. Combining and weaving a myriad of the arts together - music, poetry (lyrics), film, theatre (German Weimer Republic & the absurd), slapstick, vaudeville, cabaret and movement - Satori Circus has carved an interdisciplinary niche out of the Detroit’s underground. Recently SC has been on America’s Got Talent and voted as Detroit’s #1 Theatre Group by Channel 4’s ‘Best of Detroit.’”
