Burlesque – The Movie

Posted 16th November, 2010 by

So some of you may have heard there is a movie coming out called “Burlesque” starring Christina Aguilera and Cher.  Here is a little synopsis of the film fromWiki: Ali Rose (Christina Aguilera) is a small-town girl with a big voice who escapes hardship and an uncertain future to follow her dreams to Los Angeles. After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing... • read more •

Monkey See, Monkey Do.

Posted 11th November, 2010 by

One of my favourite performers at the New York Burlesque Festival was the amazing boylesquer, The Evil Hate Monkey.  He is the current Mister Exotic World and normally performs with his partner in crime Trixie Little.  I love, love, LOVE this performance.  I just couldn’t stop laughing!  He went a little further (as in more nekkid) than this in New York but I would still say it’s NSFW.... • read more •

Ukulele Love

Posted 10th November, 2010 by

Ukulele fever seems to have hit us at Sugar Blue of late.  Mia Bella and I have gone a little gaga for ukulele.  The difference between us being Mia can actually play and I can’t.  But I have always dreamed of ukulele stardom and I’ll be damned if I don’t get there. I picked up this little cutie today.  I did go in just wanting... • read more •

More Powell to You

Posted 8th November, 2010 by

Sorry for being so absent ladies and gents!  Things have been a little on the crazy side around here.  But I am back!  YES!! With a vengeance?  We shall see! Anyhoo, I am still full of ideas for acts and I’m absorbing inspiration like some kind of swarovski encrusted sponge.  My lastest endeavor is an act inspired by my favourite lady dancer of all time, Eleanor Powell.  ... • read more •

Boylesque Pythons

Posted 21st August, 2010 by

I’ve been looking for some inspiration for the next Sugar Blue Revue, “The Speakeasy” and came across this little gem from Monty Python.  It’s the Secretary of the Commonwealth boylesque routine after the rather questionable stripping doctor.  Oh Terry Jones!  You make me chuckle! Be prepared to see some of this (especially the pants twirling – GENIUS) in the show along with some other hilarious hijinks. I’ll be... • read more •

It’s very rare that I am truly inspired by another hula hooper.  Don’t get me wrong, there are some amazing talent performers out there but a lot of it is very samey samey.  Especially the Russian ex gymnast/ballerina types.  Some of the tricks they do are just so unrelatable. I doubt I’ll every be able to pull my foot up to my head and spin... • read more •

Sugar Blue Burlesque at the London Burlesque Week!

Posted 9th July, 2010 by

Here is a clip that we have just put up of our group performance at the 2010 London Burlesque Week in May featuring myself (A’dora Derriere), Trixi Tassels and Sapphire Demure. The crazy thing is that after we performed the act the MC, Armitage Shanks, told us that it was his song that we had performed to – Klezmerde by Circus Contraption. Little did we realise before this... • read more •

Competitive Inspiration

Posted 29th June, 2010 by

Some of the Sugar Blue ladies (myself included) are going to be competing in the upcoming Miss Burlesque Australia pageant.  There are also other breathtaking Perth Burly-Q lovelies performing, including Ginger La Minge and Lola Cherry Cola, who are favourites of mine.  The Perth heat is on the 18th of July at the fabulous Fremantle Town Hall.  I can promise you this is a show not to... • read more •

Do You Hula Hoop?

Posted 5th June, 2010 by

‘Cause I sure do!!  Here is the routine from the Vegas show that I may have mentioned (I did a four split, did I mention that already?).  Words cannot describe how ecstatic I am with how the routine came out! When that 4th hoop dropped into the split, I almost screamed with happiness.  I have been working so hard to get that move.  So so... • read more •

Itty Bitty Ladies.

Posted 3rd June, 2010 by

I just love seeing other burlesque artists perform but I so rarely get the chance.  Whenever something is on, I always have other commitments or gigs of my own to perform at.  *Le Sigh*.  I usually just have to look at clips and things on the internets.  It’s just always so inspiring and interesting to see other peoples style and individual take on burlesque. Cherry... • read more •
