The incomparable Blanche DeBris is offering a burlesque workshop on Friday, March 21st!
A 101 of “acting for burlesque,” this workshop uses acting and theatre game techniques to help you “color up” and connect to your burlesque persona/character, connect the dots in your performance, and connect to the audience. Enrich your storytelling and brighten up your shine! Please bring a notebook (for notes!) and dress comfortably for lots of enthusiastic and possibly embarrassing movement. Come prepared to share ideas and ask questions!
Appropriate for both beginners and seasoned performed. (Plus Blanche is just FUN.)
Friday, March 21st
Registration is limited.
About the Instructor:
The alter-ego behind Blanche DeBris has been a professional actor, singer and all-around performer for over 20 years. She attended the High School of Performing Arts in New York (the "Fame" school) and graduated from New York University magna cum laude in Educational Theatre. Directly out of college, she was cast in her first National Tour and got her Actors' Equity card. After returning to New York, she became a company member of Tiny Mythic Theatre Company (along with burlesque luminaries Tigger! and Scotty the Blue Bunny), which soon after became the OBIE-award winning HERE Arts Center in Soho. She became a fixture of the downtown theatre, performance art, and cabaret scene in New York, as well as studying and performing with the Riverside Shakespeare Company. She produced, wrote and directed her own one-woman shows to sold-out and extended runs, and worked collaboratively with new composers and lyricist/bookwriters to showcase new works at the BMI Musical Theatre Workshop. In 1995, she was asked to go to London be in the cast of Burning Habits, a cult-favorite serial gothic soap opera. She stayed in London for three years performing at the Drill Hall and studying with some of Great Britain's best theatre actors and teachers. Returning to New York, she continued to perform with HERE Arts Center, at the OBIEs, and theatre festivals. Moving to Las Vegas in 2003, she jumped right into the theatre scene, performing with local community theatres and winning a 2006 Best Supporting Actress in a Musical "Tony" Award from the Las Vegas Review Journal for her role in Into the Woods. Also in 2006, she was cast in Menopause the Musical, at the Las Vegas Hilton, later moving to Luxor, where she worked for 5 1/2 years. She currently tours with Menopause nationally.
Sometime in the early 90's, she caught a whiff of the emerging burlesque scene in New York, mostly disguised in shows about strip clubs and in performance art venues. It wasn't until years later that she did something about it her own darn self. Blanche DeBris made her official burlesque debut in March of 2008, at the Moisture Festival in Seattle, alongside Indigo Blue, Inga Ingenue, The Shanghai Pearl, Paula the Swedish Housewife, Trixie Little and the Evil Hate Monkey, the Von Foxies... all in all, not a bad roster amongst which to make a debut. Since then she has hosted and performed in Seattle, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Chicago, New Orleans, Dallas, Minneapolis, and Las Vegas, and has emceed the prestigious Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend Movers, Shakers and Innovators Showcase (2012) and Miss Exotic World/Tournament of Tease (2013).
