The Striptease Burlesque photo exhibition will be exhibited in Helsinki during the Helsinki Burlesque Festival, January/February 2009.
There's a photo of me in the show, from this photo shoot:
Photo by Paule Saviano.
For some reason, in many of the photos from that shoot I'm yelling or biting or snarling. I wasn't having a bad day--who could be having a bad day rolling around in their underwear on a pink velvet victorian sofa covered with boas? I was just rowdy!
I would like to take my body over there with my photo and see this Finnish burlesque. In fact, I'd love to just travel around seeing burlesque in other places. May I have a grant please?
