Stolz geben die Berliner an, ihre Stadt sei die sicherste Europas. Sie behaupten das mit Recht, es gibt hier tatsächlich nichts zu klauen, die meisten Bewohner leben von Rente plus Kindergeld, die anderen müssen sich als kreative Selbständige von Projekt zu Projekt über die Runden bringen. Die…

How and when did you get into Cabaret and Burlesque?
I always wanted to be on the stage… I was in a Catholic School with nuns until I was 14. The best thing of this part of my life was when there was some kind of party or celebration, because then I was always busy doing the choreography and costume for the dancers! I really enjoyed that! But my parents never thought that my interest for the stage was something real or productive…so I started to study translation and interpreting at the University of Granada… but in secret, I did 3 years of classic theater and Comedia dell´arte…that was just the beginning of my passion for the stage. After finishing my studies, I left everything behind, and came to Berlin to finally make my dreams come true… Step by step I was trying different kinds of performances, developing my own style and skills. At that time I was working as a stripper to pay the bills… and this way is how I came across Burlesque…it was such a beautiful feeling of freedom! I knew it was just perfect for me from the very beginning! Burlesque represents woman power for me, exactly what I was looking for all these years to rebel against my catholic and religious education! Thus, I finished my degree in Burlesque with the wonderful Lady Lou School of Burlesque and the rest…will become history!
What do you enjoy most about performing?
The feeling before, during and after the show. Before I am always very excited! I can even run away from the venue just because of stage fright!! But I stay…of course. This feeling goes away as soon as I step on the stage, and then I am in heaven! During the show I just see shining eyes all around! And after the show…..the applause! I can only compare this to an orgasm! These feelings make me an addict, like a junkie!
What are your performances like?
My performances are a piece of my heart and my soul, I always try to tell something important for me. I consider every one of them like a baby, born from my bowels.
How long have you lived in Berlin and why did you move here?
I have been living in Berlin for 7 years and I still think it was the best decision of my life. I am so lucky to be in this extraordinary city, full of charm and history! Of course, I was attracted by its cultural and night-life side and I am still amazed of its people and essence…the ‘Berliner Luft’ they say.
What is it like to perform in Berlin?
Berlin is well known because of its open-minded and intercultural mixture. You can find anything here and with a kind of mix not seen in other cities. People are happy to welcome anything which involve art, culture and entertainment. They are hungry of arts! And they participate and get involved in the performances with real interest and happiness. I think they take it much more seriously in other places and people are not so participatory.
Do you have any funny performance stories you would like to share?
Oh, yes… my very first Burlesque show…in Pinky´s Peepshow at the Bassy Club. It was the ‘Lady Lou´s School of Burlesque goes live’ show, the graduation performance of the School. I had been really busy finishing my costume for the ‘Wolf in Sheep´s Clothing’ performance and I came quite late to the venue, really stressed and excited. As I was getting dressed backstage…I just couldn’t find my underwear!! It was all full of costumes from all the other performers and in that chaos I just couldn’t find them and as it was so late I just got dressed without… Fortunately I had my pantyhose…and I just forgot about it! And by the way…I think the first line of the audience could see everything…and when I say everything I mean EVERYTHING! I was so concentrated on my show that I didn’t think about it!!
When the show was finished, a friend asked me about it and I was soooo embarrassed!! I didn’t come back to Pinky´s until quite a long time later!! Unbelievable! I still feel embarrassed when I think about it! Hahaha ;)
Excuse me while I shoot myself.

The Collision-Prevent-Assist-System of Mercedes works well. What if it would have been developed ages ago? What if it would be a lot better we expected? What would be if it has had a soul?
Das bestehende Collision-Prevent-Assist-System von Mercedes funktioniert. Was wäre aber wenn es schon viel früher entwickelt worden wäre. Was wäre wenn es viel besser funktionieren würde, eine Seele hätte?
