How did you first get into burlesque?
I used to perform live performance art at friends’ clubs when a promoter spotted me. We got talking, I was introduced to Zoe Lloyd, who created the graphics and costumes for the Whoopee Club (the only burlesque club in Europe at the time), became her assistant, and ended up doing my #rst shows for Whoopee.
Have you ever performed in any unusual locations?
The most unusual was probably a private event in a Venetian Palazzo. But I have also performed in a bubble on a lake and on a sand dune in the Nevada Desert. Soon I’ll also be performing on ice, too...
Which is your favourite costume?
My “Dream a Little Dream” ensemble. It’s very Ziegfeld’s Follies! I make all my costumes to couture standard, including a 2m peacock feather train and a 3m recreation of a Klimt masterpiece. Then there are 6m swan wings, and a serpentine cloak that lights up!
