South African beauty Sophia Von Syren sits down with MJ to talk about burlesque as a healing art form, Burlesque in Capetown, the Croatian Burlesque & Cabaret Festival, the reality of working in a different currency and her fascinating IGTV series, "What's Your Signature!"
Not to be pigeonholed, with a style that's ever evolving, Miss Sophia Von Syren stays true to the essence of burlesque – the tease. Her performances range from serious to intense and sometimes lighthearted, with some surprising twists!
Full time burlesque performer, Miss Von Syren started her career under the tutelage of Miss Oh! She moved to Cape Town in 2012 and blasted on to the local scene. She produced a number of successful burlesque shows under High Tease Burlesque Productions (now known as Von Syren Productions) and continues to produce high quality burlesque experiences.
She also hosts burlesque workshops and is available for mentoring up and coming performers on act & character development, costuming and stage presence.
When she isn't on stage Miss Von Syren builds and races custom motorcycles as an ongoing side project with internationally acclaimed tattoo artist Milo "Mr Lucky" Marcer who owns and operates Mr. Lucky’s Cape Town Tattoo.
