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)

HBF 9th edition done and more

So, here we go, the 9th Annual Helsinki Burlesque Festival is done and we are moving towards the 10th!! It´s incredible how time flies!

But, now, for the exciting thing for this spring, the work at the Finnish National Opera in the Rake´s Progress, and opera by Igor Stravinsky. It is just a tiny little part, twirling firetassels but I am so happy to do it.  Find out more about the production here http://oopperabaletti.fi/ohjelmisto/hulttion-tie

I highly recommend the production, it is very visual and also if you have never been to the opera I think it is a great piece to begin with. See you there maybe!


So many things coming up in spring 2016. I spent 10 days touring Italy to start the year. So lovely with some sun and lovely people. Now we are speeding towards the 9th Annual Helsinki Burlesque Festival. Before that there are however many events to come in february, Pirates Pleasure with the Beauty theme, so looking forward to it! Then an Art exhibition opening in Voipaala ArtCenter, curated by me with a bunch of fabulous artists looking at tattoo culture. Of course we have the Burlesque Blossoms coming up too. Then later this spring I will be joining the Finnish National Opera as a guestperformer in a production called Rake´s Progress by Strawinsky. Here are some posters of what is coming. Also follow the calendar and www.helsinkiburlesque.com

Hey all,

My favourite holiday is here soon! Still one show to go and then it is time for a little break. I have enjoyed this busy fall so much. I have been touring in Europe and it makes me very happy to see so much is going on! The fall has been about Hamburg, Turku, New York, Stockholm, Paris, Bratislava, Prague, Munich, Berlin, Leipzig, Vienna, Kuopio, Tampere, Iisalmi…and yes, of course my beloved Hellsinki. A sold out Finnish Burlesque Gala and Pirates Pleasures, my own little club. Aand of course shows here in Helsinki that I´ve had the pleasure of joining by fellow producers and performers right here at home, the fabulous Shangri-La Showgirls and Osuuskunta Mielipäivä…

The festival tickets are selling faster than ever. It seems clear that at in many ways gloomy times need some sparkle, people need ways to relax, to forget about everyday life and celebrate with fellow humans. And what could be a better way than burlesque.  If you want to join the fun in March be sure to get your tickets now!

Ps.Also if you are thinking of a x-mas present for your loved one, a burlesque workshop can be a fun option! hint hint :D

Ps1.See you next year! Follow my calendar and come and see me sometime!

x-mas kisses
