On Saturday, March 1st, I will be performing with some of Baltimore’s best burlesque performers at AREA 405 to raise funds to help support the Maryland Institute College of Art’s (MICA) Exhibition Development Seminar (EDS) presentation, “Workin’ the Tease: The Art of Baltimore Burlesque,” in partnership with the Modell Lyric Opera House. The ticketed fundraiser includes live burlesque performances by Mourna Handful, Cherie Nuit, Tapitha Kix, Sunny Sighed and Bal’d Lightning, and Hot and Bothered music, a themed dinner, and auctions of merchandise, memorabilia, and original artwork. Femme-cee for the evening is the exuberant Short Staxx and Sierra Ho and Kat Zotti from MICA’s burlesque troupe will serve as the stage kittens.

Proceeds from this event will help EDS further develop “Workin’ the Tease” and will kick off the celebration of Baltimore’s incredible burlesque scene. Tickets can be purchased here: . Please see the Facebook event page for updates.

Mae Govannen!

Not all those who wander are lost and you have stumbled your way onto my little plot of digital Middle Earth. Here you will find the musings, photos, and videos of that deletable dichotomy of burlesque (and bonafide LotR geek, if you hadn’t noticed), Mourna Handful. I’m a little bit dark and little bit light, a little bit naughty and a little bit nice. From classic to nerdlesque, I am a contradiction of burlesque. Check back often for updates and upcoming performances.
