Support Nz Burlesque To Go International

MisRed Delicious is recognised as one of NZ’s top burlesque performers, teachers and producers. She is an award winning performer (winner of Miss Burlesque NZ13) and the producer of the New Zealand Burlesque Festival. A huge driver for her is to help develop the New Zealand Burlesque Community by exposing it to the international industry both within our shores and overseas. This development focus has happened through her teaching and producing role. It unfortunately has come at the cost of her own performance career goals.
In 2013 she had to turn down the opportunity to perform in the USA at the Show Me Burlesque Festival, Saint Louis, to ensure the success of the upcoming NZ Burlesque Festival and the development that could be achieved from it.
MisRed Delicious is extremely excited that this wonderful opportunity to perform at the Show Me Burlesque Festival has presented itself again for May 2014 along with other performance opportunities in Australia, including the Australian and Perth Burlesque Festivals. Performing is what she really loves to do most and with her commitment to production costs, MisRed Delicious needs your support to make this performing goal happen for her.
Specifically funds raised from all fundraising efforts will go towards return flights to Saint Louis USA, Melbourne and Perth Australia, and will assist in living costs for the few days she is showcasing her unique New Zealand brand of burlesque in these countries.
As this is a "all-or-nothing" funding project, if we reach the goal all physical goods will be sent out no later than 2 weeks after the campaign closes.

The People Behind Support NZ Burlesque to go International
Burlesque has quickly turned from my hobby, to a passion, obsession and now business. There is something exhilarating about watching a woman exude confidence as is seen on the burlesque stage. It’s infectious and gives the watcher a moment of desire and they want to be able to have that same level of confidence. Women these days commonly have a lot going on, and are so often defined by what they do – wife, mother, partner, daughter, worker, student. There is little time to stop and take a moment, when there is the expectation that they should be these things all the time, and do nothing for themselves. Burlesque gave me an outlet to be who they want to be, to find something that is just for my satisfaction, and enjoy the moment. The air of confidence that comes with being on stage carries through into other parts of life, and the camaraderie in the community provides lifelong friendships and passion. In 3 years, I have won 4 titles, travelled overseas, taught over 100 women and found myself supporting the development of a community. This is what I want to do until the day I am gone from this earth.

Thank you to everyone who has pledged and shared my campaign. It is really really appreciated. I think it's unlikely that it's going to make it to the campaign goal but can't express enough my gratitude to you all in supporting me to at least get this far. If you would like to continue to support me regardless of the outcome here today please get in touch. I'm not giving up on getting to these festivals just yet!
thank you again, much much love
The count down is on.
