FAIRBANKS Weird science just got weirder.

In a twisted mashup of “Star Wars” meets “Star Trek”and possibly”Aliens”taking on “Alf” with maybe a sprinkling of “Barbarella” going full “Blade Runner,” an interstellar science fiction themed burlesque is opening tonight for a three show run at The Marlin, 3412 College Road.

It’s called “Stranger Thongs,” and it’s more than just a pop culture filled evening referencing sci fi classics. It is, as creator and choreographer David Leslie calls it, a “sex positive variety show,” adding, “Can you put ‘sex’ along with ‘dirty’ and ‘butts?'”

Leslie is known for his dance and choreography work in Fairbanks, having worked with theater and dance groups in Interior Alaska for almost 10 years now. He’s also produced and choreographed “The Hot Mess Burlesque,” an annual summer burlesque performance presented by the philanthropic group Angry, Young and Poor. Wanting to take the idea of dance and burlesque a little further, he andcreated Daddy D’s Dirty Dancers,

the performing group entrenched in “Stranger Thongs.”

The idea behind a three night run something rare for burlesque shows in Fairbanks is simple. He’s looking for a betterreturn on his investment.

“Usually, it takes a lot of effort for a small routine, so I wanted the choreography to hold up for more than one show,” Leslie said. “I’m trying to elevate burlesque and choreography and give it a multi night run.”

The performance includes seven dancers, eight with Leslie on board, and consists of 12 acts. You can expect a takeoff on killer aliens,tormented robots and freaky science with riffs on movies, literature and popular TV shows. After each performance, different entertainment options take the stage at The Marlin, including a karaoke night tonight, Songweeds and Friends on Friday and DJ Cosmic Owl on Saturday.

“It’s kind of my next goal as a choreographer to produce a multi night show and to pay my dancers,” Leslie said. “Being able to do a show in this town and actually pay your dancers and performers is rare,

and I want to have good choreography and be able to pay them. This is me trying to make a better show.”

The member of Oxfordshire County Council’s Trading Standards team convinced Elizabeth Mildenhall to allow her to come to her home in Lavender Way, Witney, last year.

After the exchange the goods were found to be counterfeit and her home was searched in December.

The 22 year old, now of Andersey Way, Abingdon, admitted six trading crimes at Oxford Magistrates’ Court on Monday and was fined 200 for each offence.

Richard Webb, the council’s trading standards and community safety manager, said: “The sale of counterfeit clothing damages local economies, supports organised crime and it is not tolerated in Oxfordshire.

“I hope this conviction acts as a strong warning and deterrent to anybody else who is considering selling fake goods locally.”

Anu Prashar, a team leader for Oxfordshire County Council’s trading standards team, who prosecuted Mildenhall, said: “This was not a sophisticated counterfeit clothing selling operation and one that was infiltrated via Facebook by Trading Standards.

“Mildenhall responded to our messages even though she had no idea who was making the contact and then blatantly sold the fake Ugg boots to our officer at her then home after arranging to meet via Facebook.

“The fines given Mildenhall reflect how seriously the courts take the matter of counterfeit goods.”

Councillor Louise Chapman, the county council’s cabinet member for policy co ordination, added: “There are trademark rules for a reason and those who break them by selling counterfeit goods are committing a criminal offence which can lead to prosecution and a conviction.”
