Sweet like syrup
Miss Maple Rose, the self-pronounced ambassador for the True North, burst onto Sydney's ever-growing burlesque scene in 2011. Since she has worked tirelessly at reviving the glory of old Hollywood glamour while also keeping the tradition of parody in the style of burlesque. This bright eyed, autumn haired siren began her performing career as a ballerina, and combines her professional expertise in costume and set design with her foundation in dance to create cheeky routines that are entirely original. From Canada to Australia to Sweden and back, she’s graced the seediest of stages across 4 continents. She loves long walks on the banks of Lake Ontario, drinking smooth whiskey next to a roaring fire, and her favourite food is one of the juiciest. Of course, she’s the one and only, classiest piece of bacon!
Maple Rose is a household name in the Australian burlesque scene and has recently moved back from the Scandinavian Capital, Stockholm, where she joined the in-house cast at Stockholm's local speakeasy, Melt Bar & Restaurant. Back in Australia, Maple co-founded Highway Robbery Productions which produces the After Hours Cabaret Club. Now Maple focuses on expanding the local burlesque community by producing a small intimate burlesque night bimonthly at The Woodlands Hotel in Coburg. You can learn from Maple in her Sewing 101 class at Maison Burlesque, and catch her at regular events produced by the school.
Maple's alter ego is the one and only large, inflatable, feather fan wielding Tease-Rex! Learn more here.
