Sugar Blue Burlesque In Strasbourg
This past weekend saw the first (of many, hopefully!) Sugar Blue Burlesque show in France. A’dora Derriere, Scarlet O’Harlot and myself, Trixi Tassels, travelled to Strasbourg to put on a show with the wonderful George Bangable.
It was a crazy, busy weekend that began with our Eurostar at 7.25am on Saturday and ended when we arrived back in London late Sunday night.
We three girls performed two solos and two trios each, resurrecting the amazing cherry mambo act from London Burlesque Week 2010 and the classic Sugar Blue Burlesque fan dance.
The stunningly beautiful Coco Das Vegas was our pickup girl and additional performer for the night, also driving us to and from the train station and generally looking after us all.
The venue, La Salamandre, was pretty stunning, only having been open since September and with a retro feel and lovely large stage.
Adora was teaching a workshop on Sunday which meant Scarlet and I had a chance to explore Strasbourg. We wandered the beautiful streets eating roasted chestnuts and even managed a trip to the modern art museum to check out an exhibition on the occult and witchcraft in European art during the 18th-20th centuries.
Yay for France!
