in 2010, Grace Hall founded Il Tempio del Burlesque, a training and therapeutic project dedicated to women, more and more victims of stereotypes, aimed at listening to the body and its acceptance. Burlesque, in fact, if lived as a discipline, helps to improve the relationship with your own body, to recognize your own expressive potential and to learn a more conscious body language. For many it is a real therapy that helps to gain greater security and self esteem.
Grace Hall is the producer of the shows Grace ‘s Tricks Revue, Burlesque Extravaganza, Varietà Burlesque and Cabaret Burlesque.
Grace Hall is present in several paragraphs in the book ‘Burlesque’ edited by Castelvecchi accredited as the “Queen of Italian Burlesque”.
In 2016, Grace Hall founded Zed Film srl, a film production, television and advertising company, created to develop and support quality projects that give a nod to the market.
As an expert tease in great demand, she’s performed in fabulous festivals and beautiful venues across the planet dancing and singing her way through Europe, the US and Canada.
It is during her international tours that she had the idea to produce and direct the documentary Burlesque Extravaganza (2018), a diary of a journey, a daring road movie in the glittering world of Burlesque, where imagination mixes with reality, told, discovered and lived by Grace Hall. A tour started from Rome passing through many cities of Europe, and covering most of the United States. The film wants to be, as the real Burlesque suggests, a container of reveries and various abilities that go from dance, to singing, to circus, to magic, to transformism and to all that enhances the uniqueness that every interpreter embodies. The project wants to make and also extend a reflection on the contemporary world and on the figure of the woman in particular, more and more becoming a victim of stereotypes. Burlesque is the celebration of the body in all its forms and sizes, thus becoming a special therapy to begin to accept and love each other. For many, it becomes a real journey to discover oneself and one’s potential.
Currently, Grace is working on an electronic music album with two internationally renowned DJs, producers and beat makers: Supabeatz & Ninfa. The typical sound of the London break beat, trip pop, new jazz and hip hop is combined with the aesthetics and the erotic charge of burlesque in a whirlwind of black music in perfect ninja style tune rec. The project, called Kiss My Neck, sees the active collaboration of many leading artists in the national and international jazz, hip hop, afro and electro beat scene.
