The Gorgeous Billie Rae
Craig and I were early birds to a show called Big Top Tease in Busselton Western Australia worth standing in light rain to get front row seats .
After 2 huge sold out shows in Perth in April, Sugar Blue Burlesque brings the Perth Burlesque Festival in combination with Circus Joseph Ashton to Busselton!
For one night only, you can watch some of stars of the festival in a show with Circus Joseph Ashton under the Big Top, to create a very special Big Top Tease show!
Funny Lady, MC Fanny La Rue will guide you through a night of talented acts from Circus Joseph Ashton as well as Perth International Burlesque festival touring artistes, British Beauty – Missy Fatale, UK startlet – Billie Rae, Italian Goddess – Dixie Ramone and Festival directors and Sugar Blue Burlesque performers – Coco Poppin and A’dora Derriere.
With her red hair and ivory skin, Billie Rae is a unique and talented Burlesque dancer and fire performer with grace and poise reminiscent of the bohemian starlets and vamps of the 20’s. Whether dancing with fire or weaving her fans Ms Rae can take you back to the truly decadent and strange world of smoky Opium dens, the promiscuous Casbahs and the lavish bordellos of that hedonistic era. A meld of circus treats and theatre macabre with classical dance, eroticism and ornate costumes, Billie Rae uses her training in Fine Art and Fashion to inspire and create spectacular avant-garde performances and lavish wears.
Based in Brighton Billie Rae is also gracing stages of the world from Paris, Milan, Amsterdam and even as far as China and New York, at the most well respected nights alongside the best of National and International performers and for some of the most prestigious names in Burlesque and Cabaret, previous clients have included Louis Vuitton, Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque and many more…
