How long have you been burlesquing?
I just turned one!

What drew you/draws you to burlesque?
Body Positivity and the supportive community among women, that’s what drew me to it.  Now, fifty-percent of what I do is for me – I’m a performer, it’s who I am.  And I love feeling great about myself on stage, in large part due to this art-form. The other fifty-percent is for whichever women in the audience may be inspired by me.  Other people have been that for me. I’m happy to be that for whoever needs me.

What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?
I’m a musical theater actress and a yogi. I also work as a model, art model and write musical satire promoting Body Positivity.

Trick or Treat? Please elaborate.
In first grade I made a sweatshirt with TONS of glitter paint and an iron-on teddy bear witch that said “I AM THE TREAT” – I’ll stick with that!

Come see Unsung Hera and the rest of our treats at The Triad on October 29. Tickets.

How long have you been burlesquing?
Six wonderful, crazy years, as of October 15th.

What drew you/draws you to burlesque?
A dirty old man at a gay bar asked if I wanted to take my clothes off for money. I said yes.

A few things keep drawing me to burlesque. One is that it’s wonderful and a joy to create new ideas and stories and concepts and bring them to life. Two is I get to perform with some of my best friends who are family. I also enjoy love and support for the audience.

What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?
Craft new ideas and projects.

Trick or Treat? Please elaborate.
Treat. I like my treats and they come in many forms.

Treat yourself to Chardonnay LaTease and the rest of our tricky lineup at The Triad on October 29. Tickets.
