Burlesque performer, the beautiful and sensual  TRACY LASHES will be performing on Friday, December 1, 2017 at the DAVID J’s  live exclusive DJ performance, hosted by KINK CARNIVAL at the  Underground ( 1146 Fort St.,  Honolulu, Hawaii ).

http://djnocturna.com/david-j-exclusive-dj-set-december-1-2017/

 Here’s my interview with Tracy Lashes and these are her responses:

1) In a relationship are you dominant or submissive ?  I’m a Dominant.

2) Describe the type of performances that you do and how long have you been doing it?   My dance is burlesque with a twist of ballet, contort, weird, cosplay, and surprises. I’ve been doing burlesque for 7 years and ballet for 13 years.

3) Who do you take your inspiration from? Who are some of your inspirations and why do you like them?  My inspiration comes from a mixture of Lili st. Cyr , Blaze star, Marilyn Monroe, Dirty Martini, Sally Rand, cosplay , and Masuimi Max.

4) what are some of your hobbies or passions?  Hair, Special effects makeup, and dancing are my passion.

5) Tell us something we don’t know about you ?   I’m a huge collector of HR Giger autograph books, posters, and art. 

6) Everyone has a fetish or two . What are some of your fetishes ? I love biting necks, face sitting ( which I’m the one sitting on peoples faces 😉) , and spanking .

7) What are your future goals in life? To be a special effects makeup artist for movies and a traveling burlesque artist .

8) Tell us or describe one sexual fantasy.   I love the movie legend I think my fantasy would be the part when Darkness played by Tim Curry comes out from the mirror and walks up to lili and awakes her. I would love to be lili 😉

9) where are some favorite places you’ve been to and why do you like the?  One of my favorite places I’ve been to is Germany!! It’s so beautiful and the people there are so diverse. Lots of holidays! 

10) Your favorite food and why ?  Korean food is my favorite! It’s so spicy like me 😉 lol 

11) Are you an ocean or a river ? Please explain.   I think I’m an ocean because it’s so big and so much things that’s still a mystery. A river has limits and I don’t really have limits. Life gives you a lot to deal with and sometimes we don’t know what’s coming ahead or to be expected. 

12) Are you a jungle or a forest? Please explain.  I think I’m a forest. With me people see what they see on the outside with my tattoos, weight, and piercings, but when they get to know me it can be an unexpected surprise. Like a forest people see it might be scary and not so beautiful but when you look deep in a forest it can surprise you and you can find some of the beautiful things to photograph. 

13) Are you the sun or the moon ? Please explain.  I’m definitely a moon. I’m mostly alive at night. I’m not a day person mostly grumpy when I first get up and try to figure out my day. Also the moon shines really brite at night compare to a sun it would hurt your eyes when you look upon it. I don’t like to burn people I love people to see me and see the real me and sometimes people can see it in the strangest places.

TEMPLE TRIBAL FUSION BELLYDANCER NAGASITA PERFORMS WITH DAVID J (Bauhaus/Love and Rockets)

She has been a sought after belly dancer and teacher of the Pacific NW region,  teaching Tribal Nouveau Temple Dance and Ritual Theatre Internationally. I am so honored that she accepted my invitation to come to Honolulu to perform at David J’s live music performance on Saturday, December 2nd at Next Door (43 North Hotel Street, Honolulu, Hawaii).

I first met Nagasita in 2012 when the Middle Eastern Dance Artists of Hawaii brought Nagasita to Honolulu where she conducted workshops and performed  along with Shakti Dance Movement who shared the stage with her along with others.  Nagasita is a stunning performer to watch and she moves like a serpent, the “Princess of the Serpent Land.”

The beautiful and mesmerizing Nagasita is a Temple Tribal Fusion Belly Dancer who studied under Kashmir Shaivism at the Rudrananda Ashram where she learned  ancient ritual practices from India and Tibet.  Avant garde, innovative and in the cutting-edge of her craft,  she is one of the pioneers of ritual performance in Tribal Bellydance today.

Born in Oahu and later moving to the Big Island, Nagasita danced Kahiko with the Hula Halau which led to an affinity for sacred interpretations through movement.  She is also experienced in yoga and a certified Vinyasa Yoga instructor. Nagasita has studied under the teachings of Tribal Fusion bellydance legends, Rachel Brice, Zoe Jakes, Mardi Love, Moria Chappell and Severina. She spent a number of years studying Odissi Indian Classical dance under the guidance of Jamie Lynn Colley, Colleena Shakti and Moria Chappell, and Butoh with Mizu Dezierto.  She teaches various workshops internationally such as Ritual Theatre, costuming and adornment and so much more. As the founder of Tribal Nouveau Temple Dance Troupe APSARA, she also co-produced the Anahata Festival and world renowned Eastern Nouveau Dance showcase Salon L’Orient and was the director of the dark theatre troupe she founded called Bogville while living in Portland, just to name a few.

Thank you for the Honolulu Star Advertiser and Elizabeth Kieszkowski for the awesome write up in the TGIF Section page 3 on David J, bassist and founding member of Bauhaus and Love and Rockets and Nagasita.

Nagasita will be performing one night only in Honolulu, Hawaii on Saturday, December 2, 2017 at Next Door. Tickets for this event can be purchased here:
