In just a couple of month's, my next show is going to be happening at the Intrepid Theatre. #PUSSYMAGIC burlesque has been in the works since July 2016, and I've been thinking critically about the things that I have wanted to bring to each show. One of my goals since becoming an independent producer, as been to expose Victoria for new performance art and to think outside the box. For me, this doesn't necessarily mean always bringing big headliners from other cities, but performers who are outside of our local community who are doing things we haven't seen before.
So I'd like to introduce you to the two new performers I'll be introducing you to come February!
POCKET VENUS - I had the pleasure of meeting Pocket Venus during my trip up to Tofino to perform with Lushious entertainment. She is a spitfire, a creator, and an artist. I love what a bundle of energy she is and how diverse her performances are. She is a member of the Screaming Chickens theatrical society which won best group act at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in 2016, and has been a part of the Sailor Moon Burlesque production, Moonage Kingdom which has now completed several sold out shows.
LILAC LUST - Lilac Lust is also anOther performer based in Vancouver, BC who had responded to my open call for performances. Her video lured me in from beginning to end, and I love that she has his way of milking that slow burn. I was incredibly impressed to see that this energy translated to video, which is usually extremely hard to do. This told me that her performance will only translate even better on stage.
AERIAL PERFORMANCE - Last year, I had the privilege for of meeting an amazing teacher at Alive studio, who has since made her burlesque debut as Envy Rose. She is a skilled pole dancer, and has experience with aerial performance, and I'm looking forward to having her bring new performance art to the stage, and creating some more aerial/burlesque fusion!
I hope you'll make to this show and support me in bringing something new to the Victoria burlesque scene! I have so much up my sleeve for 2017!
