Burlesque Update #19

In my last update I said I was performing in a couple of shows during February, and I now have a few pictures to share. They were taken at the Burlesque Muse 2021 competition in Canberra, courtesy of CaptaVitae Photography and Stuart Bucknell Photography.

Here we are all lined up on stage for the announcement of the winner (Spoiler: It wasn't me)

Now show would be complete without a backstage selfie. This is me with (left to right) Stella Doubleshot, Miss Jossofine and eventual runner-up Lola Lust

In the previous post I said I was also performing in Wollongong. The only performance photo I have from that night is what we call a 'pasty shot', and one generally doesn't share what are basically the final reveal pictures on social media because you want audiences to come to a show and see those. But here's another backstage selfie, featuring Miss Patsy Declined, Shazza from Sanga and, in the background, Faerie Cake

Both shows were fabulous to perform in, with good-sized audiences even allowing for our moderate COVID restrictions. At the end of this month I'm taking my act up to Sydney, as the regular burlesque shows there are starting up again.

And as well as shows, we have classes slowly starting up again as well. This was taken last weekend at a silk fan workshop Catherine and I went to, run by Canberra performer Jazida.

Stay tuned for the next update!


  1. Fantastic! So great to see life returning to something approaching normal. We, on the other hand, have just had restrictions tightened again... I can't remember when I last saw dance or theatre live. It's been over a year. I can't see anything going on here until at least summer... maybe the fall...?

    1. We had our first show back in September, and there have been a few live events since then, but it's only in the past couple of months that things have picked up to a level you could begin to call 'normal'. We do have some restrictions, mostly involved with tracking who's at the venue, controlling numbers and distancing, but they're not too onerous.

  2. I always enjoy reading your burlesque posts ... mainly because you all seem to be having so much fun!

    All the best,


    1. Thank you. I do have a lot of fun most of the time, although the amount of preparation is a little stressful sometimes :)
