Next canon Season 3 episode 9

Why So Much Shakespeare?

Let’s Mix it Up a Little!

Featuring Kylie Rench

Welcome to Season 3 Episode 9 of the Next Canon Podcast!

Today Kylie and I Talk about our burlesque experiences and how we come alive on stage! We also discuss ways to update our dear old Shakespeare and build the Next Canon! Catch Kylie as Moonlit Marie SOON on a burlesque stage near you!

Kylie is a queer (pansexual, demisexual) visual artist and performer, typically performing burlesque and circus arts.  They write short stories and are in the process of starting an online watercolor landscape class through the Sol Acting School out of Albuquerque, New Mexico for their new media department. They were a ticketer and usher for the Seattle Theater Groups for about two years, getting high exposure to theater through work. Kylie graduated from Cornish College of the Arts in 2019 with a BFA in Graphic Design with a focus on illustration. During their senior year, Kylie took Cherry Manhattan’s Neo-burlesque class and began to explore burlesque that way. They have been a stage hand and worn various hats for several burlesque shows over the past three years.

Mysterious influences from Victorian, gothic, and the fantastic become Moonlit Marie on the stage. This mystical tease offers subtle slyness and organic flow that will take you to your knees. Fiercely fluid, and always flexible, you’ll always hope Moonlit Marie will reveal just one more layer – and wonder who might show up next. With acts reminiscent of vaudeville, saucy sweet strip teases, to high elf fan dances and aerial silk flows, Moonlit Marie is flexible, unpredictable and adventitious.
