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...

Recent Burlesque Outings

After a fairly quiet month, it's been a busy week for burlesque. First to report, Cardiff-based musicians Jason "Flapsandwich" Philips and Sandor "Cosmo" Dus, having made an anti-Brexit protest song, asked if I would like to contribute some burlesque dancing to the music video.

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 →

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 ......

Perils of Persephone

Rather quicker than I had expected, there are now videos of my latest burlesque show with Cardiff Cabaret Club (Yin and Yang show, June 22nd 2018). Thus, as requested, my better judgement notwithstanding, here is exhibit A. I am the suspect at the very far right of the scene, on the dancefloor. Please be forgiving... Continue Reading →

Bad Things

(The obligatory dressing room group shot, although not the complete group, as some dancers were doing up to three routines and solo dances that night. I was less ambitious, but maybe one day ...) Over the past three weeks I have gradually been getting more mobile and independent, doing small shopping trips, taking accompanied walks,... Continue Reading →
