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.

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.

Indeed, it has... Continue Reading →

In the latest chapter of what has been, on many levels, the most challenging, fulfilling, scary, and exciting year of my life,... Continue Reading →

Recently, I was Googling about to see if I could find any new reviews on Wolves of Dacia, obviously searching with... Continue Reading →

Come to the Cabaret …

... except you can't, alas, as we danced it last night, but here's a nice group shot to give some idea of the wonderfully manic atmosphere: (That's me at far left, failing to fling my scarf any great distance, though not for want of enthusiasm. Just rubbish arm action.) So, my first performance is finally... Continue Reading →
