Taking the Stage at the Brighton Chocolate Festival

I am excited to announce my next performance will be at the upcoming Brighton Chocolate Festival!

This is the perfect opportunity to showcase my new act, and hopefully begin a bold new direction in the world of burlesque.

 

HOW DID IT ALL BEGIN?

The main idea for this upcoming show has sprung forth from an exciting artistic collaboration with Nina Marie Shoes, a bespoke shoe artist. I first fell in love with her work at the Chocolate Show in London, in 2017. It was love at first sight, seeing her hyper-realistic scrumptious chocolate shoes, which were shown alongside the fashion designs from Salon du Chocolat.

The idea of a conceptual collaboration between chefs and designers really sparked my creative appetite, and the idea was born to turn these beautiful pieces into performance art! The most sensual blend of dessert and burlesque, mixed together in a fantastic creation.

In a flash, we were communicating and working on a great collaboration.

The first idea came from her famous Death By Chocolate Shoes. I was fortunate to take these shoes on a journey to Eindhoven, NL where I got to shoot with the wonderful and talented, Henny Sep. Our collaboration has evolved and Nina designed a new pair of shoes to go with my new act, “Chocolate Raspberry” – blending hyper-realism with surrealism!

 

THE ACT – “CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY”

I am performing with Nina’s fabulous new shoe creation (to be revealed at the festival). My costume is equally delicious and designed by Fetish Noir Couture, who specialises in vintage skinwear and burlesque costumes.

It is with this powerful creative team that we will bring to you the perfect vision of “Chocolate Raspberry”; blending haute couture with haute dessert – bringing to life how this tasty treat should make you feel!

Come see my fantastic artistic creation at the upcoming Brighton Chocolate Festival!

 

PERFORMING AT THE BRIGHTON CHOCOLATE FESTIVAL

This year, the Chocolate Festival is being held in Brighton by Discover Cacao as there is no Chocolate Show in London, so it’s off to the seaside to debut my new act. Brighton is showcasing eye-popping displays, shows, and performances as a part of their festival, and I am honoured to be a part of it, taking my performance from a delicious dream to reality during the festival! This will be a multi-sensory experience you won’t forget!

I’ll be performing “Chocolate Raspberry” on Saturday 13th October 2018 shortly after 3.30pm.
