Sera Tonin was, like so many others, born naked and wet. But unlike many others, she emerged as a grown woman, christened in a shower in late 2014. Ever since, this burlesque showgirl has been teasing and titillating her audience with cheeky winks and the trademark scrunch of her nose.
Keen to foster communi-tease, this performer founded The Burlesque Collective in 2015 to help grow the Christchurch burlesque scene. She’s proud to watch the BC going strongly, supporting the community with workshops and producing shows that see performers of many levels, genres, and regions making guest appearances.
Sera’s style is sensuous and luxuriant. She refuses to take herself too seriously but you’ll often find her luxuriating in her own touch under a spotlight. She’ll beckon you forward to be part of her little in-joke, but gives you no guarantee that she won’t leave you wanting more. This mischievous minx is confident, sultry, and classy – as long as she wants to be, that is. Sera’s languid, alluring movements and slinky, self-assured charm will have this vixen sway her way into your affections in no time.
She’s putting the “moan” back into the feel-good hormone – she’s Sera Tonin.
