Beatrix Von Bourbon may have achieved mainstream popularity as a semifinalist on season six of Britain’s Got Talent, but the tattooed vixen was known as a top act on the burlesque scene for years before her television debut. Voted one of 21st Century Burlesque Top 50 Act three years in a row (2010, 2011, 2012) she is a weekly regular at Cafe De Paris and Crazy Bear in London. Early in her career Beatrix Von Bourbon spent several months performing Variety Theater and modeling in Stuttgart Germany. She now teaches the art of burlesque and is a resident judge at the annual Berlin Burlesque Contest.
It does not matter which character from one of her signature acts she is playing, be it the bungling bellhop from Hey Bellboy or the slightly demented tooth collector in the Tooth Fairy the raven haired beauty proves she can deliver a sexy comedy. But don’t put Beatrix Von Bourbon in a box, her burlesque work is groundbreaking and original taking burlesque beyond comic bump and grind. In her two of her signature acts, Winter and Love Will Tear Us Apart she delivers emotionally charged performances full of romantic and dreamy emotions rarely seen in the work of other artists.
Beatrix Von Bourbon said “I believe burlesque striptease is not about being a ‘classy stripper’, displaying generic notions of sex in a tasteful style. It’s got much more depth than that.” She definitely brings that depth to burlesque.
