Our Halloween show, La Fête Fatale, is fast approaching and we’d like you to meet one of our sassy stars, Unsung Hera. Read on for more.
How long have you been burlesquing?
I just turned one!
What drew you/draws you to burlesque?
Body Positivity and the supportive community among women, that’s what drew me to it. Now, fifty-percent of what I do is for me – I’m a performer, it’s who I am. And I love feeling great about myself on stage, in large part due to this art-form. The other fifty-percent is for whichever women in the audience may be inspired by me. Other people have been that for me. I’m happy to be that for whoever needs me.
What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?
I’m a musical theater actress and a yogi. I also work as a model, art model and write musical satire promoting Body Positivity.
Trick or Treat? Please elaborate.
In first grade I made a sweatshirt with TONS of glitter paint and an iron-on teddy bear witch that said “I AM THE TREAT” – I’ll stick with that!
