A Little Sketchy

A Little Sketchy

Saturday, February 13 was a cold night in New York City, but these lovelies left the Triad audience sizzling. We had a great turnout for our second show, Love Me If You Dare, including a special guest: Artist Eric Ortiz*, who was kind enough to take brush to paper and whip up a few sketches of our sassy performers.

If you’re interested in purchasing any artwork (you are interested, aren’t you??), contact Ruby Mechant at rubymechant@gmail.com or  Eric at ericortiz@studiocygnatura.com. You can also tweet Eric at @studiocygnatura.

If you missed the show (shame on you!), you can see videos here. Be sure to follow us on YouTube so you’ll never miss a moment.

And stay tuned for news of upcoming shows on April 16 and June 18. Exciting times ahead! 

Have a great weekend and we hope to see you soon!

xoxo,

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?
Niente.

Come see Ruby and the rest of the ladies at Les Femmes Fatales Give Thanks – our debut show – November 20 @ 9 PM, Triad Theater, 158 W. 72 St. 212.362.2590

Les Femmes Fatales are très happy to be here. OUR FIRST SHOW is Friday, November 20, 9 PM at the Triad Theater, 158 W. 72 St.

Come join us as we shake, shimmy and give thanks for our abundant assets.

Hosted by the lovely Jules Brittannia, Les Femmes Fatales Give Thanks features the sublime Dandy Dillinger and a cornucopia of badass burlesque beauties, including Ruby Mechant, Spicy L’amour, Luscious Lane, Shimmy LeCoeur and some nubile virgins making their burlesque debuts. For those of you who like man-meat, we also have a boylesque number starring the delicious Munroe Lilly!

Tickets are available now and are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. It’s a small theater and will probably sell out, so plan ahead and save $5!

(We are donating a portion of the proceeds to a local food bank, because that’s how we roll. Details to come. So come watch us shake our tatas to feed the hungry.)

Thanks so much and we can’t wait to see you on the 20th!

xoxo,
Les Femmes Fatales
