With our Flowers Of Romance show just over a week away, we thought you’d like to meet one of our favourite burlesque performers, Lady Wildflower
Some of you who’ve been regulars at our shows will certainly recognise this beauty! Lady Wildflower has wowed you, our lovely audience, many times over from when she first visited us back in 2011 to her last visit a few Christmases ago. We just had to get her back as we know you love her!
Hailing from the North of England, Lady Wildflower is a consummate performer, having spent a decade on burlesque stages across the world. During this time, she’s picked up many awards, including Best Technique at the Octbooberfest Tassel Twirling Championships at Stockholm Burlesque Festival 2016, keeping her tassels twirling continuously for an awesome 15 minutes! She was also nominated Best Burlesque Performer in the 2016 Sexhibition Awards, Best British Burlesque Performer at The Burlesque Awards 2016 and has been voted in the Top 20 UK Burlesque Performers of 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 by the readers of 21st Century Burlesque Magazine – an important accolade as votes are cast by true fans and audiences of burlesque worldwide!
The Wildflower has also sown her seeds in countries including New York, Italy, Finland, Germany, Holland, Sweden, Belgium, Portugal, Switzerland and a month long residency in Shanghai. Her acts are pure theatrical escapism, comprising highly polished choreography and spectacular costumes and her stage presence is electric, as audiences around the world will attest.
Not only has Lady Wildflower done all the above, but she has also inspired a whole array of dazzling performers through her regular classes – performers who have gone on to create a stir in the burlesque world, including the likes of Heidi Bang Tidy, Frieda Nipples and the awesome Vanity Dare, who is also performing at our show. She also produces, with Heidi Bang Tidy, one of the UK’s biggest burlesque festivals: Hebden Bridge and hosts the regular burlesque and cabaret show The Frou Frou Club.
We simply can’t wait for this burlesque powerhouse to hit Swansea!
Lady Wildflower will be headlining our Flowers Of Romance show, Saturday April 7. Incredibly there are still a few tickets lurking about – head directly to bluestockinglounge.bigcartel.com or Hobos to lay your hands on one! Doors open 7.30pm
