to the Rouge Revue

The Rouge Revue brings you professional, authentic burlesque at it’s best….

We host regular burlesque events in and around Cape Town, South Africa, featuring an array of stunning performers, peelers and primadonnas!

At the heart of the Rouge Revue are the Rougettes, our professional troupe of curvaceous and irresistible burlesque performers.

We aim to bring our audience more than just a show… we bring you an experience…. A throwback to the days where glamour was a way of life, ruby lips and rouged cheek bones were an essential part of every woman’s’ wardrobe and a wiggle in walk was more than enough to turn heads and set pulses racing.

The Rouge Revue also hosts one of South Africa’s premiere burlesque events, Born Risque, which showcases some of the leading names in burlesqueas well as The Grand Exhibition, a National event in support of women’s charities in South Africa.
