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 →

Pretty Fly

For those who care about such things, 'tis my most recent solo, at Ffresh Burlesque (Wales Millennium Centre, 15/3/19). Contains hints of nudeness ... Though one of our smaller venues, this was actually a really nice place to debut this routine, as the strange purple backlighting was actually a lovely, ethereal addition, making the wings...

Matrix Consolations

(In the dressing room with fellow newbie soloist Schnitzel Von Krumpet. Lovely chap, wonderful performer, and hopefully now as permanent a fixture of the Cardiff burlesque scene as I intend to be ...) In the latest chapter of what has been, on many levels, the most challenging, fulfilling, scary, and exciting year of my life,... Continue Reading →

Brains, or words to that effect …

It is late in the day to be sharing this and probably pointless (few of my followers being local, or even UK-based), but just on the off-chance, or in case any of you are interested in my burlesquey misadventures, Cardiff Cabaret Club has a new show on the horizon with a deliciously macabre theme ......
