Our sexy Valentine’s weekend show Love Me If You Dare is almost here. We don’t want to give away ALL our secrets, but here is a sneak peek of one of the badass burlesquers you will see next Saturday. Italy’s bellissima bombshell, Freaky Candy.
Name: Freaky Candy
How long have you been burlesquing? Four years
What drew you/draws you to burlesque?
I have always been curious about burlesque, but I didn’t look for information because I was sure I would lose my mind for it… I could just feel it! During my honeymoon, on our way to Bangkok I decided to watch the movie Burlesque. I know that this movie doesn’t show the reality of burlesque, but in that moment I was fascinated and enchanted by the sparkling costumes and the magic of the stage. We were landing just as the movie finished and I looked at my husband and said, “When we get back home, I will do this.” That is how it started for me.
What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?
I work as a receptionist in a 50s/60s-style Party Hostel in Rimini, Italy.
Who is your dream Valentine?
My dream Valentine is in Italy: my husband Alberto. But if I could choose a second Valentine, it would be my audience!
We can’t wait to see you!
