About Me

Performer • Actor • Model • Producer

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.

Repertoire

The repertoire of my current regular acts. I will also be happy to create an act or show tailored specifically for your event, simply get in touch with me.

Show Ghoul

There’s such a sad love deep in your eyes… This gorgeous, classic burlesque act is a real tear-jerker. Just a small show ghoul with a big boa served up on a silver platter. Suitable for a larger stage for the best effect and viewer experience. Perfect for burlesque shows and corporate events, or any evening which calls for some David Bowie.

Sinner

You’ve arrived at the Gates of Hell, please state your chosen punishment and enjoy your stay. A creepy, unsettling fetish burlesque act with lipsyncing, perfect for Halloween events as well as horror and alternative shows all year round. Featuring needles, latex and real blood – what more could you mortals possibly want from a satanic ritual?

Courtesan

The rosiness in her cheeks has already gone pale, but her flexibility has not been touched by rigor mortis yet. This floor-based contortion act to music from the famous opera “La Traviata” provides just the right amount of emotional vulnerability and astonishing physical strength. Perfect especially for circus and corporate events.

Redder Than Wine

A neo-burlesque act with a slighty creepy undertone in the best way possible. Up-close and intimate, a mysterious 30s Hollywood icon makes an advance on you, not leaving out any details of her dark fantasy and leaving very little to your imagination. Buckle up and enjoy the ride. Add a spicy kick to your cabaret night or variety show.

Feline Shape

Purrr. This bendy kitty has claws! Sometimes you just want to let out your inner cat and frolic in the junkyard. This campy dance performance and acrobatics act inspired by the musical CATS, featuring choreography and looks from the 1998 adaptation, basically screams to be performed on stage during a cabaret evening or themed show.

Regular Check-Up

Have you been to the doctor lately? Latex nurse Melancholia and her assistant will conduct a thorough, visceral examination. So, who’s the next victi- I mean patient? A hot and hardcore interactive performance ideal for fetish, horror and alternative events with bigger stages. Available as a solo act or twin look double act.

Frauenheld

This ghoul is popular with women and loves to tell passionate stories about her past lovers. And who better to narrate it than Till Lindemann himself. After all, German is the language of love *wink wink*. This hot floorwork based, high-energy fetish act will fulfil all your kink and sequin desires. Especially great for fetish and drag events.

Bubblegum Glampire

A burlesque fetish fantasy in pink. Sit back, enjoy the view and don’t mind me sinking my teeth deep into your heart. This hauntingly beautiful mix of vampiric atmosphere and high-energy lipsync is especially great for club drag shows, but will stun audiences just as well on stages of cabaret and alternative events.

The Devil Is A Woman

Madam Satan is hot as hell and very well aware of it. Are you intrigued to see how this tight-laced, rhinestoned red devil herself takes off her gloves in the most seductive ways imaginable? This theatrical burlesque and circus act with a twist on a musical classic and spot-on lipsyncing is perfect for queer cabaret shows and drag nights.
