Paris Burlesque Festival 2011!

Posted 14th November, 2011 by

I had to privilege to perform last weekend at the amazing Paris Burlesque Festival 2011.

The festival was held between the 6-9th October this year and the theme was Viva Las Vegas and there was no mistaking it!!

Juliette Dragon and her incredible crew created an atmosphere like no other festival I have attended!! It was a complete credit to them!

Sugar Blue Burlesque’s Trixi Tassels and myself (A’dora Derriere) performed on both the Friday and Saturday night and taught workshops as well. There were 2 of the same shows each night.

The festival was held at La Bellevilloise, a 3 level venue which had different entertainment on each floor. Top level was a full Vegas scene. Wedding chapel, casino, tattoo parlour, shop, dj, photo booth and also the peep show. A lot of top European perfomers were lucky enough to be invited to perform in this space. Intimate and experimental!!

Here are some shots that I took backstage on both the Friday and Saturday night at the Festival.

Friday night was a showcase of Classic Burlesque Performances.

Here I am on the far left in my showgirl headpiece with UK boylesque performer Adriano Fettucini and the amazing Billie Rae from Brighton, UK. To the right is the fabulous Italian lady, Dixie Ramone.

Another stunning Italian performer, Scarlett Martini

One of my favourite acts of the festival were this troupe from Sweden, Blackbird Burlesque. Their act featured a singer at the beginning and they all did an lovely choreographed dance number with parasols and fabulous striptease.


Here are some live shots of myself and Adriano Fettacini. Below, we have a live shot of Billie Rae with her fire!
