Year in Dance Day 61: New York Burlesque Festival Day 1: The Schlep Sisters!

I performed for Julie Atlas Muz in “The Cleaning Lady has something to Say” at the Prelude 10 Festival celebrating people at the forefront of contemporary performance art. The show was fantastic and hilarous, we played cleaning ladies, Polish cleaning ladies, and we danced to the sounds of communist rallies and songs from Mary Poppins in Polish. It was a great experience, especially throwing raw eggs!

Then I rushed down to Williamsburg with Dirty Martini and Bunny Love(both also in the piece) to The 8th Annual New York Burlesque Festival! It was the first day of the festival and what a great show! The Bell House is half Bowling Alley, half concert hall, ah Williamsburg Hipsters! What will they think of next? Some how the acoustics work out so you aren’t distracted by the bowling and it was a fantastic show!
I performed with The Schlep Sisters and we did our Barry Sisters tribute. I performed with Minnie Tonka (the other half of the Schlep Sisters) and tomorrow I’m doing a solo of Moby Dick, yes folks this is your chance to see it LIVE as it’s much better seeing the Black Light effect in person, come to the show!!
