Hellz Corner: Q&A with Freaky Candy


Freaky_Candy_pic by Marco FelixOur 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.

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!

Come see Freaky and a host of hotties at The Triad on Saturday, February 13. Tickets available here.

We can’t wait to see you!

How long have you been burlesquing?
Almost 5 years

What drew/draws you to burlesque?
After my pole dancing instructor moved to Africa I was lost. I tried a burlesque class through Groupon and after the first show I was hooked. Now, all I crave is the stage. From the day of the show to the 3 minutes and 30 seconds to the final applause and gin & tonic after my performance.

Who or what would you say are your burlesque influences?
I’m definitely more classic with a little twist. I’m not really a neo fan. I want to wear a beautiful sparkly costume, I want to tease. I want to dance, use the beat of the music but most of all, I want a grand finale.

What kind of Femme Fatale are you and why?
Ruby is definitely a badass, the way she comes out with all her attitude and bold personality. I’m the same in real life but I have to deal with people, so I have to tame her.FF_Ruby

What does it mean to be badass?
Being real to yourself and the world, as much as possible; to not adapt to what society expects.

What is your behind the scenes role with FF?
We all make the magic happen, but my part is in production. Recruiting dancers and stage kittens, training virgins (what we call newbies), being the point of contact with the venue, as well as gathering assets. From songs to prop lists to stage set-up–there are hundreds of details to run a show. Luckily I’m a Virgo, details are my detail.

What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?
My 9 to 5 is as a sales manager for an Italian textile company. They produce bedding, towels and robes for high-end hotels and resorts and I work closely with designers, architects, hotel managers and purchasing directors.

What would you like to get out of this endeavor?
When your love for something grows this much, it’s a natural step to want to do more. Doing it with a group of women who have the same perspective? It’s perfect. It all comes down to doing what makes you happy. Being on stage, creating beautiful shows and inspiring other people–that’s what this journey is all about.

Anything you’d like to add?
