Suffragette

A classic fan dance with a historic twist! Persé starts as a classic 18th century suffragette, trying to get the audience's attention with classic slogans. When that doesn't work, she tries something a little more eye-catching. 

 

Historically, suffragettes didn't like burlesque dancers, so this act has a little fun with history. A nod to the fact that there is no wrong way to be a feminist, clothed or unclothed!

Medea

 

This act is based on the Ancient Greek play, Medea, by Euripides. Medea has helped Jason and the Argonauts secure the Golden Fleece and become his bride. Before too long, however, Jason leaves Medea (and their two newborn children) for a younger Princess. Medea…doesn’t take it terribly well and kills their two children as vengeance.

 

This jaw dropping act is set to ‘Shake Senora’ by Harry Belefonte and includes baby head maracas.
