Voodoo De Luxe - Royal Burlesque Revue, Milano Italy.

Wow, I've just had the most stressfully amazing weekend I've had in a long time!
I went to Milan to perform at an incredible venue called the Casa Del Musica, they were hosting The Royal Burlesque Revue with Voodoo De Luxe.
Special thanks to Transport for London for nearly making me miss my flight and making me cry, and also to Alitalia for leaving my bags in London. (I got my luggage back less than 30 minutes before the doors opened!)
But, regardless of the stress etc... The show was absolutely amazing with other performances from Millie Dollar and Chrys Columbine.
Here are some photos from my fan dance, and my new fire performance. The majority are taken by

Grazia Teresella Breva

And, Now for the fire...........


I love these photos so much, I think they capture the essence of my 30's fan dance, and the Art Deco Fire Circus perfectly. 
I hope to be in Milan again very soon.

Double R Club

I am a massive Twin Peaks fan, HUGE... So, when I was asked to perform at a depraved and deviant cabaret club called the Double R Club, I was extremely excited!
The Double R Club is one of my more preferred unsavoury night spots, hosting all varieties of otherworldly and exotic cabaret acts, it is also home to the notorious compere Benjamin Louche. Not forgetting many amazing nods to all things 'Lynch'.

Here's a photo's of me performing at October's Double R, in The Bethnal Green Working Men's Club, London.

Link to a (brilliant) recent review of the club...!

Iltalehti Interview

Interview and performance footage from the Psychorama Festiaval Helsinki performances from Iltalehti.fi


Helsinki Psychorama - 2010 at Korjaamo.

Just got back from spending a week in Helsinki - Finland. It was wonderful, I performed at the Psychorama - Psychobilly and Burlesque festival. It was held in an absolutely fantastic venue called Korjaamo, a cultural hall, city transport museum, theatre, bar, etc...
The festival (including our backstage) was surrounded by the past trams of Helsinki ranging from the 1800s to the 1970s. Some trams were absolutely stunning, combining the practicality of Scandinavian design with ornamental features of almost forgotten eras. 
I performed my Theda Bara inspired fan dance, a Traditional Circus Sideshow and Art Deco inspired fire performance. Also performing was the Finnish Itty Bitty Tease Cabaret. 

I was interviewed by the Finnish newspaper called: Iltalehti, for an upcoming feature on Burlesque, Cabaret and Sideshow. I just hope I didn't sound too spaced out, as I had just come off stage!
Also whilst I was in Finland, I did a photoshoot with the talented Atelieri O. Haapala. A colaboration between the two Finnish photographers, Saara Salmi, and Marco Melander.  http://www.ohaapala.com 
Atelieri O. Haapala toured in various events in Helsinki between 2008-2010 with their portable photo studio. Nearly 900 old-fashioned cabinet portraits were produced for their exhibition at the Finnish Museum of Photography in 2010.
