Black Friday at the Westside Burlesque Revue

by Violet 24. November 2011 03:29
CopyrightThanksgiving day will be here tomorrow, my lovelies. All of the turkey and gravy one could hope for. I know I'm looking forward to it.

You know what comes after Thanksgiving day? Yes, its Black Friday when everyone descends on the sales floor hunting for bargains. Personally, I've never been fond of the crowds and the pushing and the shoving that I've seen happen. So I just avoid the market places altogether on that day.

Do you want to know what I'll be doing? I'll be performing for your post-shopping revelry.

That's right, my dear, I will be dancing the evening of Black Friday away with some amazing people.

The always lovely Whisper De Corvo presents the Westside Burlesque Revue at the Skylark Cafe and Tavern.

I will be sharing the stage with some absolutely amazing performers including Lotti Glitterati, Whisper De Corvo, Ava Raqs, Dessi Devine, Candy Apples, Ophira, and Betty Fish.


Friday, November 25th, 2011
Doors at 9:00 pm
Show at 9:30 pm
Tickets are $7 online and $9 at the door.
This is a 21 and over show.




School is back in session!

by Violet 22. September 2011 17:39

On September 24th, I will be heading back to school at the Tin Can Studio in Seattle and I get to do my class work with a grade A class of performers!

Pack your No. 2 pencils and your Crayolas in your brand new backpack and head Back To School! Get an education in burlesque with the sexxxy stylings of Seraphina Fiero, Scandal from Bohemia, Betty Fish, La Petite Mort, Death Ann, Iva Handfull, and more!

The show is $5 at the door and the show is at 8pm.

The Tin Can Studio is located on 3130 Airport Way South, #510, in the old Rainier Brewery.

I expect nothing less than perfect attendance from you all.

See you there, my lovelies!

Taking the first step onto the stage

by Violet 12. April 2011 22:27

For those of you following along at home, I'm completing my six week session with Miss Indigo Blue's Academey of Burlesque here in Seattle this week with my graduation recital this Saturday at 7:00 pm and 9:30 pm. But it's not just me, there are a 11 other ladies who are doing it right along with me. During an e-mail conversation this week, one performer expressed some doubts. She's doing the show and wants to continue to performer, assuming she can handle the show this weekend. I wrote the following reply to her and everyone else in the class. For many, if not all, of my class mates, this is their time doing this. And that's kind of scary, taking that first step onto the stage. I hope the e-mail helps.

I have no doubts that you, and everyone else here, will be awesome and amazing and sexy and funny and entertaining.

There is this thrill to performing for an audience that responds, that yells, that whoops and hollers, and loves you! It’s a high that will last for a while.

When I stepped out onto that stage for the first time at the Little Red Studio on July 9th, 2010, I had only just found that calm that washes over you as you step off the cliff with nothing but faith to carry you. Before that was the jitters that I get before every show coupled with utter fear and terror.

I had a load of self-doubt. I questioned myself about what I was about to get myself into. Was this wise? Who is going to applaud an overweight trans woman? What if I fall again? (I had fallen during tech rehearsal a week prior, spraining my bad ankle in the process casting doubt as to whether I’d be able to perform in the show at all.) My training at that point was a friend and teacher who is an amazing belly dancer with a background in stripping. I had pushed the direction of the classes more and more towards burlesque and I wondered if that was enough. Could I do this?

Once I was in the wings waiting for my music cue to enter—that tremolo that opens Jill Tracy’s Doomsday Serenade—and I was at the point of no return. My theater ethics wouldn’t let me back out now. No, the show must go on. Parasol in hand, I strutted onto the stage.

About four and half minutes later and several layers of clothing shed, the packed house erupted into applause! That was love; love from the audience and more importantly, there was love that felt burst forth from the well of my being. My fears and doubts were unwarranted. That was amazingly liberating and empowering for me. I tweeted from the backstage, “I have got to do this again!”

And I’ve done it again and again. I love my job and, as Scarlett said last night, I love my new normal.

And I am so very fortunate to have met and worked with you all.

You'll rock my world.

This trollop is tearing again, my lovelies, just like I did when I originally wrote it.

Updates! Candisa's Cabaret Photos and Vaginomicon

by Violet 27. February 2011 23:17

First, let me direct your attention to the work of Mr. David Greenspan who photographed Candisa's Cabaret for me! His work is always beautiful and well put together! Here is David's Flickr Stream where the full set lives!

Last night was something new for me. If you've known me for any length, I thrive on pushing my buttons, er, boundaries! A wise friend once told me that "if you're not uncomfortable, you're not doing what you need to." Well, I'm pretty comfortable taking off my clothes and entertaining audiences that, but last night was new for me. I did a dramatic reading at Vaginomicon, a small literary theater event celebrating Women In Horror Month, of Jenna M. Pitman's "Pink Heaven". As soon as I have photos from the show, I will share them with you!

Lastly, my application to perform at the Seattle Erotic Arts Festival has been submitted! Let the waiting begin!

Performances

Dress rehearsal last night was hot!

by Violet 7. July 2010 17:32

And I'm not just talking about the temperature outside! Please pardon me for a moment while I fan myself.

How hot was it? Well, the show opens with an aerial hoop routine that is amazing. Then there's Eve's monologue by Mark Twain performed by a lovely lady in not much more than some well placed foliage. There's metal grinding and the Can Can, the plight of a mad scientist from the defendant's box before the magistrate and the passion he has for his science, if you get my meaning. Daniela brings hot suspension action combine with the fervor of sizzling burlesque. If she were any hotter, her rope would've been on fire!

That's just a fraction of what will be on stage. Tickets for the Victorian Fetish Show can be purchased separately and are also included in the VIP and Weekend Pass. Doors open 8:30 with pre-show eye candy and the lights go down at 9:00.
If you want to go and you haven't acquired your tickets yet, you might to think about doing that soon as they're moving fast and seating is limited.

Tickets are available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/117039 See you there!

I now have a production schedule!

by Violet 4. June 2010 07:49

In my virtual, flishnet gloved hands rests the production schedule for the Victorian Fetish Show, a part of the Erotic Steampunk Festival at the Little Red Studio in Seattle. Doomsday is approaching once again in Seattle, about three months after the last time. :)

In the mean time, I'm strongly considering going to BurlyCon this year, October 14th to the 17th at the Quality Inn and Suites. Are you going?
