I have something I’m working on on the back burner so to speak.
I’ve been coming across several of my Burlesque friends here in Philly from yesteryear and going to their shows and seeing what they’re up to. The landscape has grown since I’ve been gone. I’ve polarized the nuances of American versus European striptease firsthand, and now I feel fueled and ready to create a hodgepodge of what I’ve learned in Berlin, but I must be careful…The USA seems to be getting more conservative by the day.
Prompted by a tagged photo on Facebook, I came across an old line-up from when I directed/choreographed The Peek-A-Boo Revue – when it was housed in its original location, the infamous jazz club, The Five Spot. I was making magic monthly, and I miss it terribly. This particular show was very very very DeVo-centric in its presentation, content and theme; I also performed in this show. Funny looking back at it now, before I went to Paris for the first time…perhaps it was portent.
