Model, Actress & Burlesque Performer, Perline DuBarry
I’m really please to share a bit about myself with your readers. I have been born and raised in Paris, France!
How did you get into modeling and what do you enjoy about it?
Modeling was first because I needed to explore myself and my own femininity at a time where I wasn’t confident. It became a passion and also a way to express myself because it’s really about acting in front of the camera and I like it.
Was Burlesque easy to pick up with your ballet dancing experience?
Actually it wasn’t! I had quit dancing for a while (10 years ago) when I met the Burlesque world in Sydney. At that time I was taking step by step to come back to enjoy dancing after 10 years of doing something else and Burlesque dancing has been a revelation for me!
However my body condition was terribly bad so it’s was technically hard and it’s also about sharing a story and to be able to be proud of your body on stage which is very scary.
What can someone who has never attended a Burlesque or cabaret show expect from their first experience?
Honestly, I will say, “be prepared for everything, because anything can happen!”
This is the beauty of burlesque!
Which 3 fun things do you enjoy doing most in Paris?
Well I don’t think I’m a reference because I’m pretty traditional and I enjoy traditional institutions in Paris, so my top 3 will be to:
- Grab a ticket to watch a ballet to the Opera de Paris,
- Another one to “la Comédie Francaise”
- Go up onto the last floor of “Les Galeries Lafayette “ to have a cup of tea and admire the roofs of Paris!
If you could change or improve one thing about the world, what will it be?
Gosh… There are so many things that we can improve in our world but if I have to choose, I will choose to improve the conditions of women all over the world.
Because I feel closely (obviously I’m a woman) about this and this is unacceptable that in our time, men and women don’t have the same statutes and the same chances in life because of our sexes.
Would you rather invent a new gadget or discover a new species?
I want to definitely discover a new species!! Some species die because of climate change but I’m sure some new ones are born as well! And it will give a bit of hope and happiness to people I think.
Does chivalry still exist today?
It never went away, it just took a different form. And in my opinion, it’s a good thing because we have change the codes between men and women (yes again) and chivalry was so redactor for woman.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Perline. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
There is nothing more sexy than a man or a woman who is confident and proud of themselves and their body.
