Happy Sunday Dazzlers and Dazzler-ettes!
In a few weeks, 20th of March, I take my first step into the greatest unknown in art: Producing my own gig.
Teasing Talkies is an idea I've had for a while. I actually love finding old reels or movies or documentaries about burlesque, other than the ones you find on Youtube, I support them on Kickstarter whenever one comes up and I try to make in my business to find out the history of this art form and the history of the neo revival as well, as that's been going for at least two decades now, there's just as much history in our recent history as there is from back then which I think is equally as important.
We all have a story to tell in our own ways, it's part of why we get on our respective stages every night.
The first story I am showing is "Dirty Martini and the New Burlesque". Dirty is an amazing inspiration within the Global Community, encompassing the grace of the classic world and the rawness of the neo world in a perfect balance. Here she is looking fabulous for a Karl Largerfeld shoot:
Teasing Talkies a new idea, but not an out there idea. It's about engaging and educating about what type of burlesque is out there, this whole idea. The burlesque community and art communities in general wherever you go can be come "insular" I'm not saying its a bad thing, but I've always believed in educating yourself to evolve your art to a higher level.
Here's to education through boobs!
Tickets are available here! And see what's happening on the Facebook page here! I may have a tag and win comp on there at the moment ;)
Keep on Dazzling,
