This Tuesday’s Dr. Sketchy Vancouver session at Hot Art Wet City featured a boylesque performer, Tranny Zukko, this week. I was thrilled, since there aren’t many male burlesque dancers out there, and I have missed a couple of them at past Dr. Sketchy’s because I couldn’t make it.
Tranny Zukko was fierce, and his intermission dance was high energy and appropriately trashy. And he was very sweet in person when I asked him about upcoming performances with his burlesque troupe “The Dirty Vanities”. He said they will be performing at the W.I.S.E. Hall in early December, so I am sure he meant the Taboo Revue Burlesque Variety Show scheduled for Saturday December 7th at that venue.
I like to think of myself as a bit of a burlesque groupie, but it’s often more in spirit than in action. Having drawn him now, and having seen him dance and act, I will make an effort to attend Tranny Zukko’s next show. Whether he’s performing as a member of the Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society, or his own brandnew troupe The Dirty Vanities (can’t find a website), my expectations are high!Read More
