Twist is an elegant and beguiling contortion act from the roaring times of the flapper. Drawing on Desiree’s background as a contemporary dancer and a yogi, she brings something theatrical to the traditional idea of contortion.
The result is Twist! An elegantly costumed feather fantasia, a rare exhibition of human flexibility.
The podium needs to be a minimum of 2 meters wide by 1 meter deep and around 1 meter high. There should be a safe and easy way to get up on to the podium. The performance area must be clean and non slippery. Desiree can provide a Top Hat podium if the client does not have a podium or would like something special looking. If on the ground, the performance area needs to be 2 meters wide by 2 meters deep to provide a safe distance to the audience and any physical obstruction. Running time is 6 minutes. Music is available on CD and a P.A. is required.

Here’s what Twist – Contortionist’s clients said:
Desiree was bright and cheerful, always smiling and happy. Her performance was very much enjoyed by the whole audience and she certainly achieved our goal of giving the audience a “wow” factor performance that would get them talking. The performers were absolutely fantastic on Saturday, thank you so much for helping me arrange them for the night. They were fab! Twist was incredible and really helped set the tone of the evening, she was a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much for Saturday. You were a star and everyone has been saying how great you were.
Thanks ever so much for last night. We really enjoyed working with you and loved your sets. I loved the way you made your contortion beautiful, comic and shocking – very few other acts I’ve seen do these and use their faces to engage with the audience so well. Working with people we like and who are professional people is a big part of the enjoyment for us and we would very much to work with you again at some point!
I have to specially mention Desiree as she was fantastic and really lovely to work with.
Refined contortion poses, gorgeously costumed, superbly performed, elaborated staged- a rare exhibition of human flexibility.
Comely Contortion Queen with simultaneous fan dance, a rare opportunity to witness this beautifully presented impossible feat
The Flash Monkey
Desiree returns with her stylish contortion number, Twist. Gorgeously dressed in a white-fringed flapper costume, accessorized with white ostrich-feather fans, she elegantly performs unusual yoga-inspired poses.

Yes all went very well indeed on Friday. The editor of the motoring section was tickled pink being squeezed into a Skoda boot with the 7 girls…. apparently made his year! I hope the girls were happy? It wasn’t an easy job and the location of a pub car park in November wearing a skimpy unitard wasn’t ideal either!! But they grinned and beared it and did a great job.
