Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Babes of Burlesque: 1

A’DORA DERRIERE

Glad to see you survived the New Year and found your way back here. To kick off 2013 with fanfare, and enough shaking and shimmying to bring down a bull moose, we’re launching a new daily series: The Babes of Burlesque. We’ll go around the world with this series, traveling to 15 different countries to expose you to some of the steamiest, funniest and most flamboyant Neo-Burlesque entertainers on the planet. Each day, through January and February, you can pick up the radiant heat to help you through the long, cold winter.

We compiled our list of 59 Babes of Burlesque after painstaking research — yes, this was truly a rough and grueling assignment. You’ll note that we’ve left out several reigning Burlesque superstars, so our list can’t be described as definitive. Our choices are perhaps quirky, but they got our attention, and we think you’ll enjoy these foxy sirens. Some have great gimmicks. Others have great gams. All of them know how to work the crowd and command a stage.

We’ll present them in alphabetical order, from A to Z, actually A to V, beginning with Australia’s A’Dora Derriere and concluding with Vicky Butterfly from Great Britain. But enough babbling. Let’s get started. Meet A’Dora Derriere, the pride of the Sugar Blue Burlesque troupe from Perth, Australia. We have two clips featuring A’Dora. The first, comic in nature, is her Wild Woman Act.

And here’s her tribute to Josephine Baker, with a banana dance, presented at the Casino de Paris.
