Fuck Corona

I hope you are all well and healthy.

Needless to say that ALL shows have been calcelled and/or postponed during this pandemic time. There´s really nothing I can add except send warm thoughts and sunlight to each and every home where physical distancing is taking place.

Be brave, this too shall pass. It might pass as a kidney stone, but it will pass.

To cheer ya´ll here´s one from the batch of new promo pics for Thee Dizzy Daisies we shot just before this shit hit the fan. Photopraphy by the amazing Asko Jonathan Photgraphy, huge love to my partner in crime Pepper Sparkles!

Stay safe <3

Lahti Burlesque is now official!

Working together - double the strenght! Or at least, that´s what Dolly Poupée, Dick Tator and myself thought and made Lahti Burlesque official! All of us have been producing events and workshops in the Lahti area for a few years now and we came together for last November´s Piparirevyy- and it was great!

Thing is: we will still have our "own" clubs, Dolly has her nights at Tirra and we´re in Pikku Hanhi but we are looking forward to doing more brainstorming and work together to provide the city with even more varied and mind blowing performers and other cool stuff! And yes, we are thinking about doing Piparirevyy this year again...

So if you want to keep up do give us a like on Instagram @lahtiburlesque ! For info and inquiries: lahtiburleski@gmail.com

And without further ado, here´s our next two clubs!

2020!

Happy New Year, folks!

As the end of, and the beginning of, has been somewhat rough on me due to many different reasons (phneumonia being one of them) I´m looking at 2020 with hopeful eyes. I´ve set myself up for some new possibilities and hope (crossing fingers) that at least some of the plans and dreams I have will come through. Trying my best to silence the ever-so-pessimistic reality-checker in my head. If you always play safe, you never win anything new and exciting, huh?

I´m not making any resolutions and I´m pretty happy about the way I am at the moment- no need for "new me"-but I´ll try to polish and better whatever is here. This goes for my acts as well, at least two of my old ones will hopefully get a make over & polish in the coming year. I really recommend this instead of always hurrying in to making new ones, -sometimes dusting off works wonders.

Have a beautiful start of 2020 wherever you are!

I´ve been mermaided! If you want to give art as a present (it´s ALWAYS a good idea) how about comissioning the incredibly talented Johanna Laakkonen to make a mermaid portrait of someone special? You can find her on Instagram @johannalaakkonenart

I´m super happy about this portrait- she really captured my essence! P.S in my experience it pays off to give the artists free hands, it always comes back better than I had ever thought possible <3
