“The Saucy Songbird” Fräulein Frauke is one of Sweden’s biggest international burlesque stars, regularly performing around Europe and beyond. Nearly 4 years ago, she started the celebrated Fräulein Frauke Presents Burlesque Club that she now runs with her husband. FFP has grown to be Sweden’s biggest burlesque and cabaret club, with over 700 guests and excellent international performers, live music and a classic vintage aesthetic. Together with her husband, artist and photographer, John Paul Bichard, she co-runs “Bichard Studios”- the couple´s framework for their work: in the burlesque scene with events and photography, in the corporate world with video and shoots and in their own personal, creative and artistic work. As well as producing and performing, Frauke is also a singer, costume maker and stylist.
John-Paul Bichard is an English born artist and photographer who’s works have been shown and collected around the globe. He is one half of Bichard Studios: the event organiser and photographer duo who are prominent figures in the Swedish burlesque and cabaret scene. Many talented stars from the worldwide community have been captured by his lens for his current photo series ‘Exquisite identities’ which encapsulates the intensity and extravagance of the Burlesque World. The main focus of his photographic works is to question and exploring identity, sexuality and role through the characters and alter egos of extraordinary people.
He co-runs Sweden’s biggest burlesque and cabaret club Fräulein Frauke Presents together with his wife Fräulein Frauke.
