Twice a night last Friday and Saturday, May 27-28, the seductive Kylie Lewallen and her smoldering swain, Ty Cheng, performed Coquette by Olivier Wevers, part of La Danse! Le Burlesque! L’Edition Francaise! at Seattle’s Triple Door.

A ‘story ballet,’ though hardly the usual fairy tale the term connotes, Coquette is a wise and witty saga of gender reversals, sexual stereotypes overturned, and exploration of other selves.

Let the pictures speak for themselves!
