Signature Acts


"I Prefer Your Hat"

This routine is a magic trick, where the pretty lady becomes the magician. Classic-era red velvet gown and elbow-length red gloves peel down and then into a dapper tailcoat and bowler hat with la pièce de résistance - the moustache!

Song: "Three for the Show" (The Johnny Staccato Band)

"She'll Be Mine"

A smoky little number that can be performed on the smallest of stages: perfect for a little jazz bar, cocktail lounge or cabaret show.

Song: "She'll Be Mine After a While" (Papa Lightfoot)

Length of piece: 3 minutes


"Blue Fantasy"

The epitome of classic burlesque, going from elegance to bumps and grinds. The costume includes a custom-made one-of-a-kind peacock skirt that creates a beautiful surprise reveal.

The "anti" hockey anthem, for all those sports fan friends who couldn't give a flying f*** about hockey. A humorous burlesque piece that strips through multiple Canadian hockey jerseys to get to Violette's true feelings on this most Canadian of sports.

Song: "Smoking Cigarettes and Watching Hockey Night in Canada" (The Royal Winnipeg Porn Orchestra)

Length of piece: 3:41 minutes / Choreographer: Violette Coquette

The Lone Ranger is caught off-guard and must ride into the action and fight off unseen foes, with all the suspense and drama one expects from an old Spaghetti Western. Our hero runs out of bullets but a surprise reveal of some hidden guns saves the day!

Song: "Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo (Titoli)" by Ennio Morricone / "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly"

Length of piece: 3:09 minutes / Choreographer: Violette Coquette

 


"Clap Hands"

This neo burlesque number has a sexy, dark whisky feel. Beginning all in coat tails and black, this performance ends with naked, dripping jewels.

Song: "Clap Hands" (Tom Waits)

Length of piece: 4 minutes / Choreographer: Violette Coquette

 

 


"Top Hat, Swing Low" (Duet) 

Performed at the 2016 New Orleans Burlesque Festival! This duet presents a striking image on stage, starting with the two performers in dapper tailcoats, top hats and canes. The energy-build through the piece keeps the audience on their toes, with a surprise gender-bending transformation in the middle and climactic energy-filled reveal at the end.

See a video of this act on the NOBF stage on YouTube.

Songs: "Revue Noire" (Nicolas Repac) and "The Elk's Parade" (Bobby Sherwood & his Orchestra)

Length of piece: 4:28

Performers: Violette Coquette and Dame Pérignon
