CopyrightWhen June comes to call, some people like to look back at the first half of the year and see where they came from as they plot the way forward through the rest of the year. Here at the Belltown Burlesque Revue we not only approve of this approach, we’re going to do it one better! We’re going to spend an evening looking at the roots of the neo burlesque movement through the lens of classic burlesque! It’s an evening of tributes to those who laid the foundation we dance upon and a celebration of the classic bump and grind.

CopyrightAs the reality storm comes to a head seek refuge at Worlds' End and stay for the stories

Join us for an extravaganza of clever and sassy homage to the many worlds of Neil Gaiman, a prolific writer with notable works spanning comic books, novels, children's books and stories, television series, and film. With genres ranging from fantasy to science fiction and the occasional epic children's tale, the stories you'll see are quite diverse.

The tales involve a goddess, Beldam and her doll, the heart of a blue box, a young woman who is far older than she appears, an enslaved faerie, the very essence of dreams personified, and more.

Performing for you on these June nights are Ms. Vixen Valentine, Kendra Hayes, Candy Apples, Miss Violet DeVille, Ivy DuPri, Czech Mate, Miss Penelope Rose, Morgue Anne, Stella Vaughn, Lana Milk-n-Honey, and Pacific Syren. Lilith von Fraumench will help us navigate the troubled skies and find safe haven.

CopyrightOn July 30th, my oldest niece, Christy, was driving on U.S. Highway 287 just north of the Colorado-Wyoming border where she hit a patch of wet road after a summer storm. Her Dodge Neon hydroplaned and crossed into oncoming traffic, sliding into a semi. Her injuries were severe enough that she was air lifted to Denver Health for treatment in Colorado.

She is out of the ICU now and in rehabilitation for her severe brain injuries. She still has a long way to go.

Christy wanted to come to Seattle and explore the independent music scene and this thing called burlesque that her crazy aunt did.  

With five weeks in the intensive care unit and ongoing treatment at a hospital specialized in the rehabilitation of brain injuries, her medical bills are going to be staggering. 

Here's where you can help.

Go see a burlesque show.

(Cross posted from Violet DeVille|Thank you!)

Oh my goddess! Last night was was School House Strip at the Rendezvous and the show was very good! If you missed the show you missed something wonderful.

Shows like last night are especially rewarding and it reaffirms to me why I love producing burlesque shows.

What do I love about producing burlesq? Many things!

I love the laughter from the audience when they see something. I love it when an audience member hoots and hollers because he or she sees something they like. I love the smiles on people's faces as they exit the theater. I love giving new performers a chance to spread their wings. I love it when those new wings take flight. I love it when seasoned pros show me and the audience what they've got. And love it when everything comes together and we've made magic.

Last night was magic and I am in awe of each my performers and my crew. You were all so very wonderful last night. Thank you for working your collective tushes off and making it amazing.

School House Strip wouldn't have been magical without the help of Beatrice Belladonna, Bolt Action, Boom Boom L'Roux, Coquette LaRouge, Sir Eddie Van Glam, Eva Harlowe, Ginger Julep, Katana Bellydance, Katie Lebear, Lila Dread, Lily Cohen-Moore, Lillith von Fraumench, Sailor St. Claire, Scarlett O'Hairdye, Solange Corbeau, Sue Mohn, and Tipsy Conqubine.

Thank you ladies and gentlemen for the love, the laughs, and how effortlessly you made being awesome look.

This weekend I am enjoying the weekend "off" for a change. No shoots. No shows. I can put off planning for shows. Nothing I need to do. It will be grand and glorious. I just need to pack for Westercon and relax.

Right. Like that'll happen.

Here's what I'm doing over the next four weeks.

Busy is as busy goes. )

August is a little slower, but I'll talk about that one later.

I am really excited for this next show, The Cog Days of Summer, on the 11th of June!

Rusty L'Orange, our master of ceremonies, will guide you through the gas light streets and cobblestone back allies to show you the finest entertainment this side of Yessler's Wall. He'll show wind up dolls and mad scientists seeking to cure the ills of hysteria. Perhaps he will even introduce you to a time traveler and procurer of scientific supplies, though she may be a touch shady in her dealings.

This evening of fine entertainment for ladies and gents, scoundrels and scientists includes performances that will delight and amaze!

  • Katana
  • La Petite Mort
  • Chesty LaRue
  • Deseo Carmin
  • Dahlia Ste. Cyr
  • Scarlett O'Hairdye
  • Miss Violet DeVille
  • Beatrice Belladonna

Are you going to follow Mr. L'Orange's lead? He'll keep you safe from the ruffians who walk the cobble streets. Free range automatons and clanks are another story entirely. ;)

Note: This is a cross-post from Through the Shutter

Different kinds of shows require a different kinds of results. When I shoot play, there are times I can almost predict where the action is happening and where it's going to go so I can get the shot when it happens. Shooting a live dance performance can be another beast all together and American Tribal Style belly dance, a form of belly dance built around group improvisation, is no exception. Of course when you trade out theater lights for the harsh rays of the sun, capturing that perfect photo becomes that much harder.

On July 11th, I had the honor of following the Students of Skin Deep around with my camera as these talented rocked the Beacon Rocks street festival.

Note: This is a cross-post from Through the Shutter

One of the things I love about my work and photography as a whole is how you capture this memory, a moment in time. For everyone outside of the opening and closing of the shutter, that moment is gone only to be remembered imperfectly. With a camera, I can preserve those moments. Sometimes, I can create memories that never were.

Recently, I began trolling through the Stopped Motion Photography archives. Holy cow, there are a lot of photos in there and you can see where the where the learning curves are. Here are a few memories from the past, both real and imagined. More behind the cut. )
