Circus @ Bournemouth Opera House



On boxing Day i was invited to perform at Bournemouth Opera House for a night called Circus. It an amazingly beautiful venue with some great history! I did 2 shows there, one on the hoop and one on the silk.

The Opera House located in the Boscombe district of Bournemouth, is now one of Bournemouth’s most successful and largest nightclubs. It has a long history dating back to it’s opening on 17th May 1895, and was used as a circus/theatre.






In the late 1960’s the building was reincarnated as a music venue and saw acts such as Pink Floyd, Status Quo, Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, Hawkwind and David Bowie. In the 1980’s saw the revolution of the discothèque and the Academy Nightclub was born with a multi million pound refurbishment.

The Cobden Club London

Last night I was invited to perform at the Cobden Club for a themed party " The Beautiful and the Damned".

Was a fun night with some nice people there. It was the end of year party for beau production.

I had been tattooed that afternoon so was feeling very tender but soldiered on!

Here are some pics from my show.

Performance at Koko London



Tonight I was invited to perform at the historic Koko London. KOKO began life as The Camden Theatre and was opened on Boxing Day 1900 by the famous actress Ellen Terry, with a seating capacity of 1600.



In 1909 the theatre was renamed The Camden Hippodrome and was a variety theatre where famous names such as Charlie Chaplin appeared. It has also hosted the earliest gigs of the Eurythmics and the first UK performance by a rising star known as Madonna!



And now me!!!

I had a great time in Athens and explored the old temples and ruins while I was there. It was my first time in Greece also, and I hope to be going back in the summer to do more work on a Greek island somewhere!!

Erotica Showcase 2008 @ London Olympia



The Annual Exhibition of Erotica once again filled the Olympia Stadium in London, with new and exciting people and products from the world of erotica. From Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd November, the most daring event of the year sent thousands to Olympia in Vauxhall Road, London.



It is the biggest consumer adult lifestyle show in the world and on stage are stimulating live shows ( with me ), in the stadium are art galleries, interesting and unusual seminars take place, and visitors have a chance to do some very unusual shopping.



Some of the artistes who appeared in the live stage show were Missy Malone, the classic burlesque rock chick, Buck Angel, born a woman but transgendered into a man.



Arian Levanael,(thats me) "a wizard with ropes, silks, static trapeze and rings", and Dusty Limits, cabaret singer and comedian. Roxy Velvet (the girl with the props) has to be seen to be believed!



The 3 days and 11 shows went really well! I worked a new routine blindfolded which was a challange I thoroughly enjoyed!



The response I got was amazing and I felt very honoured to be a part of it, and appreciated!

Filming Promo with Take That for ITV London

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to be asked to film a promo ad for the band Take That. The guys have a tour coming up and a big show so was good to meet them and work with them.

I was filming a few different scenes, 1 with fire pois on my own with the band, 1 with all the other extras and another with just me as a stage manager and the band.

It was a really long day of filming, but the guys were lovely. They asked for my details so hopefully I will be working with them again in the near future.

Heres a couple of pics.
