International burlesque performer, fitness instructor, dancer and acrobat Jake DuPree is joining the ‘Blanc de Blanc’ troupe in Sydney.
Jake, who just became the first non-binary person to perform at the Crazy Horse in Paris, will bring their unique signature burlesque acts exclusively to ‘Blanc’, adding a new twist to the sell-out show.
‘Blanc de Blanc Encore’ has been wowing audiences at The Grand Electric in Surry Hills since January. It’s an intoxicating blend of fun, flirtation and acrobatic feats, enthralling audiences with the same addictive blend of acrobatic artistry and risqué revelry that its creators are known for.
Jake joins a star-studded cast including Felix Pouliot from Canada, aerialists Spencer Craig and Caitlin Tomson-Moylan from USA, Spencer Novich from the USA, Charles Eric Bouchard from Canada, Jess Mews, Sasha Lee Saunders and Melanie Hawkins from Australia. Jake made their Hollywood Bowl debut in ‘Kinky Boots’ and their burlesque debut in Dita Von Teese’s ‘Von Follies’ show, doing her famous martini glass act.
They’ve played in Paris, Berlin, London, and England, and they’ve even appeared as a dancer on ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars 3’ as Shangela’s partner in ‘Hey Kitty Girl’.
‘Blanc de Blanc’ is on at The Grand Electric, Surry Hills (Sydney) until 17 September. Jake DuPree joins the cast from 16 August.
