Shimmy Shake Festival: workshop The Art of Tease - Deena Ray
There is a tremendous strength in being sexy as we emerge from sexual energy. It is the origin of our existence. Sexy is not how beautiful your look but especially in how free you feel deep inside! Can you embrace your original wild woman? With this burlesque workshop Deena wants to find that original wild woman inside and wake her up. This happens through theatre and dance excercises. By playing you will discover parts of yourself that were already asleep and will now be awakened. Whatever you do with that is entirely up to you, but you will certainly turn into a joyful woman who feels irresistible. Deena offers a refreshing burlesque workshop that goes beyond teasing.
Deena Ray is a well-known burlesque performer and the city of Rotterdam’s very first burlesque artist. She has performed both nationally and internationally, on stages from Paris and Berlin to Kaliningrad. Deena’s burlesque acts are appreciated for their originality and diversity and her style is typically humorous burlesque, once dubbed the female Charlie Chaplin. Deena’s energetic performances are undoubtedly entertaining and especially enjoyable when appearing alongside fellow artist Raoulala.
Within The Netherlands, Deena has appeared at shows ‘Royal Dutchess Burlesque’, ‘Burlesque Freakout’, ‘Chocolate Burlesque’, ‘Rotterdam Loves Burlesque’ and ‘Burlesque Ballroom’. Deena Ray also regularly teaches burlesque within The Netherlands and Belgium.
