’Kippis elämälle ja tervetuloa burleskin maailmaan!’
- Bettie Blackheart

 
Full of Love – Pakomatka pakastimesta

 

Synopsis

 

Elämässä saa sen, minkä itse itselleen sallii.

 

Kun Petra näki burleskia ensimmäisen kerran, hän rakastui siihen kyselemättä ja perusti Suomeen uuden kulttuurin. Hänestä tuli Bettie Blackheart. Alastomuus ja seksuaalisuus oli viimein ilon ja riemun lähde eikä vaan synti ja häpeä.

 

Elokuvantekijä Iina uskaltautuu Petran tanssitunneille. Tanssiessaan hän huomaa, että on oppinut piilottamaan oman naisellisuutensa. Iina löytää uudelleen oikeutensa omaan kehoonsa ja seksuaalisuuteensa ja kasvaa naiseksi, joksi aikanaan jo syntyi.

New act Helsinki 1910

Here is my new act that I premiered at Huvilateltta at Helsinki Festival/ Juhlaviikot 25.8. and performed again at Full of Love premiere at the Helsinki International Film Festival. It is my fantasy about how a diva could have looked on stage in Helsinki in 1910 and then it is a little timetravel to 20´s and 30´s avantgarde.

Here are some photos by Asko Jonathan photography

Oh Opera!

A little clip from The Financial Times where my firetassels are mentioned

Still 8 shows to go of Rake´s Progress at the Finnish National Opera, come check it out!

And a little treat from a photoshoot of my newest act The Honeydripper, and story of transformation, sex and the beast within.

It´s also a reminder to take care of the nature so that the bees, butterflies and other insects in need have enough food to survive. Plant some seeds this spring if you can.

Here you can find some more info about plants that the bees like ( this is for Finnish climate)
