BETTIE

A cocktail of Fire and Ice, Bettie Blackheart, Hellsinki Hellcat, Queen of the Firetassels!

Kuva ja burleskitaitelija Petra Innanen aka. Bettie Blackheart on maamme tunnetuimpia esiintyjiä joka on esityksillään ja tuotannoillaan luonut mainetta myös kansainvälisesti jo vuosikymmenen ajan.  Hän tuotti suurta Helsinki Burlesque festivaalia vuosina 2008-2017 ja on esiintynyt ja opettanut aktiivisesti koko sen ajan.

Esitykset ovat voimakkaan visuaalisia ja läsnäolo lavalla vartaansa vailla. Numerot ovat värikkäitä ja ammentavat tematiikkansa fantasian ja myyttien maailmasta, keskittyen naisen voimaan kyseenalaistaen sen mikä on naiselle sopivaa. Viikingit, merirosvokuningattaret, hollywoodin kulta-ajan diivat, kiimaiset hyönteiset, vampyyripeurat ja monet muut myyttiset ja legendaariset hahmot seikkailevat näissä tarinoissa.

Bettie on pidetty opettaja. Hänen opissaan ovat monet maamme esiintyjät ottaneet ensi-askeleitaan burleskin parissa ja useat polttariseurueet viettäneet ikimuistoista juhlapäivää.

Burlesque performer, producer, instructor , visual artist.

Bettie Blackheart is a keyfigure in The Finnish Burlesque scene. With a handful of friends they started it all in the land of Santa Claus in 2007. In 2008 the first Helsinki Burlesque Festival was celebrated. She has performed all over the world from Venice via Moscow to New York. She will not bring you just a pretty girl on stage she is a Woman with a W. She has a versatile repertoire from Old School hommages to the divas of the Golden age as well as wild Neo-Burlesque acts. However she does not want to classify her acts in any genre, it is Blackheart style with fast twirls and a killer smile.

**- I do believe in burlesque as a form of art and expression. I think it is pure energy at it´s best. I love when it makes your heart beat with excitement, tears flow or make you scream with laughter. I truly hope I can make my mark in burlesque both as a performer and producer. I want the artists to be appreciated, community embraced, talent to be genuinly celebrated, imagination to be cherished. For me it is about entertaining the audience, not underestimating what they want or understand. Being realistic yet over the moon and embrasing your imagination with only the sky as the limit.- Bettie
