The countdown is on for Les Femmes Fatales‘ sultry summer show Sirens of the Solstice. Hellz Kitten sat down for a Q&A with some of the performers. Meet Bad Apple Boylesque’s Jackie Nova.
How long have you been burlesquing?
I have been burlesquing for 9 months now.
What drew you/draws you to burlesque?
I daydream a fair bit, and I came to realize one day that my most vivid daydreams were in the style of burlesque, with dramatic music, amazing costume and dance, and a strong element of sexiness & allure. I love that burlesque taps into various skills that I have, and that it also taps into a once quite prevalent, historically relevant art form. And getting naked in front of people is just so invigorating.
What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?
I am honing my crafts as an actor, singer, dancer, and musician. I work with children, I see a lot of theatre, and I’m a big fan of reading and podcasts. Enjoying the company and conversation of my closest friends gives me the energy and joy to balance it all.
What is the sexiest thing about summer?
I love how it puts us all back in touch with our basic humanity, in a way. The heat means fewer clothes, which means more sweating and need for water, which often puts an enticing sheen of natural oil on our skin.
See you soon!
