‘I’m A Walking Paradox…’
Brain Science & Sparkly Bras with burlesque performer & phd candidate, sammy sparkles
This week, Ferrero Rochelle and Rosie Verbose are joined by multi-award-winning burlesque dancer and PhD student, Sammy Sparkles! This stunning performer joins us all the way from Perth, Australia, by the magic of the Interwebs to tell us tales of The Other Side, where lockdowns are scarce and Fringe Festivals are feasible… Sammy is currently pursuing a PhD in clinical neuropsychology alongside producing and performing as part of queer-femme burlesque troupe, Burlezque. What a babe.
Head to our Instagram to see what happened when we met her gorgeous puppy, Yoshi!

Some people are escaping, you know, domestic violence relationships and they’ve finally gotten divorced and this is the only time in a week that they can have for themselves. Like, that is some powerful stuff, right? Like, you have 60 minutes of time with someone, like – I’m getting goosebumps – to do a dance class, but for them, it’s so much more than that.Sammy Sparkles on teaching burlesque
