Jeremy Willard strips away the layers of Boylesque TO's latest show

06.15.2012

“My performance style is elegant chaos . . . combining wild athletic pole dancing with statuesque grace,” says the audacious Mahogany Storm (pictured above.) A dancer and choreographer, with a focus on hip hop and jazz, Storm has been with Boylesque TO since its inception in 2008. “My pieces are generally more classic ‘burlesque’ but can range from drag or transgender to obscure performance art pieces,” says the seductive Dew Lily, who has also been with Boylesque from the start. Lily is a versatile performer, having trained in theatre and dance and done occasional work in modelling and film.

O Manada uses hilarious and lusty burlesque performance to celebrate Canadian history. Their sold-out shows have featured impersonations of Maggie and Pierre Trudeau, renditions of “The Log Driver’s Waltz,” a not-so-traditional telling of “The Hockey Sweater,” and a nearly naked version of the national anthem. “This year we’re teaming up with Buddies in Bad Times Theatre to make it an even bigger production. We’ve got some exciting additions to the cast and a bigger stage to make a mess on,” Storm says. Asked what the best part of the show will be, Lily says, “Me, the pole-dancing Mahogany Storm, and sexy, sexy group numbers.” Storm adds, “The massive surprise our mountie has up his C-string.”
