I am Melancholia Blackbile, the Czech Republic’s premier drag show ghoul. A professional Prague based drag queen and burlesque dancer merging queer performance art, horror and glamour. An international performer and actor dazzling audiences near and far with an unmatched repertoire of skills since 2018. Drag, Burlesque, Fetish, Circus – these are the main genres I focus on and like to combine, however I never shy away from a challenge or opportunity to learn something new!
Whether you’re looking for a sexy lipsync assassin, a contorting sideshow freak or an Old Hollywood diva, you’ve come to the right place – or I’ll come to yours! I’ve graced and disgraced stages all over Europe, from my native Austria to Germany, Slovakia and the United Kingdom. Beside performing, I work as a theatre and TV actor with a continuously expanding resume. I am an androgynous model and dancer, available for a variety of gigs from photomodelling and catwalks to go-go, strip and other types of adult work. I offer character impersonations such as Morticia Addams, Marlene Dietrich, Elvira and David Bowie to name a few, for walkabout, hosting and private events including family friendly ones.
Being an established and essential part of the local scene, creating opportunities not only for myself but for others too is very important to me. I’m the producer of the annual Blood Ball – the largest queer Halloween party in the Czech Republic featuring local and international performers. My sold-out shows Draglesque – a delicious blend of high-end drag & burlesque, as well as Boudoir Macabre – a platform for alternative and newbie artists, both offer monthly cabaret entertainment in Prague with diverse casts. Since 2021, I’ve been part of the production team for the Bohemian Burlesque Festival. I am a proficient multi-lingual host and Nightmare Bar’s resident horror host curating their regular Horror Movie Trivia Nights.
