Cyberstrippers

A video of my most recent burlesque performance at Tiny Rebel, Cardiff, filmed from the audience by my lovely girlfriend and hosted by Clumsy Cabaret. More evidence (as if any were needed) that my childhood obsession with robots has achieved sleazy and disturbing Gigeresque dimensions… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfPSVi3lGN8

Life is a cabaret (again, at last)

Curtain call at Tiny Rebel Cardiff after performing with Clumsy Cabaret. My first actual performing gig since 2019, after which Covid killed my burlesque career, such as it was. What an amazing feeling to get back on stage (or at least a bar room floor) again, and such an amazing crowd: so thrilling for me... Continue Reading →

Interview with Tafad Tan

An interview I did today with three Cardiff creatives (Jason Philips - musician and producer, Alrick "Ninjah" Wilson - musician and occasional drag queen, and Max Lewy - poet), on such topics as Beijing, burlesque, decluttering, writing, being transgender, and boasting a little about famous relatives.

Burlesque Showreel, Act 6

Now presenting my first burlesque solo choreographed entirely under lockdown, and one can but hope my last (not that there is any end in sight just yet, alas). Released not only on Halloween, but also on the 20th anniversary of the Dresden Dolls … although I only found out about that by accident, via the... Continue Reading →

Burlesque Showreel, Act 5

Against all probability, here is my first burlesque solo of the year. Also a debut performance for this dance, albeit only in appropriately socially-distanced music video form. A huge thank you to Jason "Flapsandwich" Philips (musician, producer, writer) and Clusterfuck for getting me on board with this - I really needed that bit of performance... Continue Reading →

Burlesque Showreel, Act 4

A reworked version of my third burlesque solo, with earlier mask removal (as this routine is hard enough without sod all peripheral vision and compromised breathing) and an improved costume, as my earlier attempt at light-up pasties - while a painstaking wiring job - were sadly too dim to really make an impact. This will... Continue Reading →

Burlesque Showreel, Act 3

The third and last installment in my burlesque showreel project pro tem. Although I have two more acts eventually to add to it, one of them needs costume work and the other I did for a music video as yet unfilmed, so it would not be right to debut it here. Some of you may... Continue Reading →

Burlesque Showreel, Act 2

The second effort in my ongoing project to while away the quarantine by filming a showreel of my burlesque solos. I finally accede to popular pressure and choreograph a vampire routine, with homage to a certain classic 1980s film. This is not quite the debut I wanted for this act, but it is what it...

Burlesque Showreel, Act 1

With nothing else to do burlesque-wise, I've decided to try putting together a showreel of my solo acts for hopefully freer times, and I'm starting with my debut act. This is the revamped version of "Phantom of the Opera / Born this Way" with new costume and revised choreography. Not exactly a live performance experience,... Continue Reading →
