Sorry for the long entry but i really think its
important for your input on this, please read it!
I am continuing to update the website (
http://www.angelfire.com/indie/halifaxburlesque/ ), i
think its an important archive of our shows and our
philosophy and I am happy to keep it up.
I'd love to have other peoples photos of the past
shows to complete the "Past Shows" page, for now
they're mostly my shots. I don't have any photos (or a
file of the poster, and I need the info on the
charities) for TeleTease, so if you have some good
ones send them along and I'll put them up.
(I also don't have any of our girl guide act from
Bever Fever if anyone has some!)
If any of you with blogs or other sites would like
them linked on the "Links" page, let me know, that
might be cool.
I am trying to complete the "Performers" page (
), which features a bunch of us veterns.
Please take a look and let me know if you'd rather not
be on it, if you'd prefer a different picture etc. ( I
am still working on putting more people up like
Juggs, Roach, Rouge, Tommy and Bebe Gunn, Indie,
Noony, Wanda... so if you guys listed here or
other veterns that don't have their pics up yet want
to write your own blurb, please send it to me)
Also the little write ups were just a quick fix to
have something there, If you'd rather write your own
blurb thats totally fine by me! (in third person for
contintuity). I can also leave the one I wrote if you
like it, or edit it a little. Here's what i have so
Founder and Artistic director of The Halifax Burlesque
Society, Jinx is a talented performer, costumer, and
organizer! Her style ranges from classic solo teases
to raunchy and hilarious acts where everyone involved
ends up covered in milkshake or even timbits.
Pussy Deville is a belly dancer and burlesquer
extrordinaire. She has been with HBS since the
beginning, both as performer and photographer. She is
also the webmistress of this site, so she gets to
write nice things about herself. Incidentally, she is
a genius, and lovelier than Helen of Troy.
Euro-pop sensation Hugo have exploded at two HBS
shows, leaving the audience in a maddened frenzy.
Members \ Hugo and The Tooth sing their songs in
German, French, and...?
Miss Conduct proves that sporty can be sexy, funny,
and very clever. From football themed strip-teases to
a steamy and hilarious monologue about hockey, she is
a truly original performer. As a women of many talents
Miss Conduct also performes with "The Stolen Minks",
winner of the Coasts "Best New Local Artist" award.
One hot mama, Tia Time-Bomb is a bomb waiting to go
off! Her acts include Tit Hortons and Milkshake with
Jinx, to attacking a birthday cake in her snowsuit.
Chainsaw can never be described in words...from a sexy
and possible insane secretary to a bondage loving
angel to a little old lady, her acts are both
hilarious, clever and Foxy.
LeNoir, our political and sex-crazed maniac goes from
humiliting a sock-stuffed George Bush, to being a
safe-sex super hero to writhing on a rotating bed
wearing a sparkly strap-on and dancing to Peaches.
Recently returned from touring the USA with the Fluff
girls, don't expect to sleep through this act.
Kitty Le Coque
Specializing in Belly dance, Circus arts and dark
seduction, Kitty is a drop-dead gorgeous and talented
performer. Often dancing with Pussy Deville as Kali's
Courtesans, she has also blown us away with a double
trapeze act, the contortioning Pony Girls and a pirate
The Cherry Bomb Squad
What can you say about a bunch of wild and
out-of-control women bouncing on excersise balls,
jumping on trampolines and getting in trouble all over
the continent? These gals are always a favorite,
especially at the polaroid booth.
A classic burlesque style strip-teaser, Lydia thrills
with her shower act, a tease to Hava Nagila,
contorting with the Pony Girls or a straight-up down-
The wildest, hottest, nastiest air band around, PSCM
has been spotted playing at the Seahorse, Club Vortex
and other local venues, while not singing a note or
playing one instrument. Their acts have been known to
get completely out of control to the point where
intervention has been necesary. Whether rocking out to
Milli Vanilli, Electric Six, The Scissor Sisters or
NKOTB, this band will knock you out.
Thanks, let me know what you think!
