Ever since I first saw Dita van Teese gracing her champagne glass in Marilyn Manson's MObscene music video many years back, I've been fascinated with the art of Burlesque. The elegance, the beauty and goddess-like femininity combined with a whole lot of sassiness had an appeal of its own for me.
However, it took me many more years, i.e. until I moved to Berlin in 2016, until I got to see my first live performance. A whole new world opened up for me: I realised how Burlesque is so much more than glamorous looks and rhinestones.
The performances I saw were empowering, thought-provoking, often political, out-of-the-box statements. I felt like I had found my world. I wanted to be one of these strong, confident and inspiring women and started taking classes with the wonderful Lady Lou. Only a little later I made my dream come to and now live out my passion on stage.
