Background

Vicky used to work as a stained glass artist and had her first exhibition in 2007 at Lauderdale house, since then she has completed a BA at Central St Martins in theatre design and as a trained costumier . Vicky is now a part Burlesque starlet, part innovative performance artiste, part music hall Vaudevillian. Her performance background includes ballet (she frequently performs en pointe), tap, circus (static trapeze or aerial hoop), acting and even opera.

Always in demand internationally, she has an enviable roster of clients (including Beefeater Gin, Roberto Cavalli, the Sugababes and the Paris Ritz), sparkling reviews and can frequently be seen gracing the pages of the worlds magazines, dancing her way through music videos and stadium projections by top bands (including The Verve, Kings of Leon and Paul Weller) and adding her unique performance style to film-sets as far away as Bollywood.

Not only as she performed but also has made costumes for many clients, including films and album covers. Vicky also curates for the Boom Boom club and Decline and fall and be proud.

Statement

"Part Burlesque starlet, part innovative performance artiste, part music hall Vaudevillian, and all dreamer: her shows reflect her unusual background, perhaps with clouds of butterflies that fly out from her clothes as she hovers en Pointe. True to the original spirit of Burlesque, Vaudeville and experimental dance performance, her beautifully choreographed routines take in everything from the ethereal, the breath-taking and the beautiful to the macabre. Her influences include everyone from Anita Berber, Loie Fuller and Isadora Duncan to Rita Hayworth, the Marchesa Luisa Casati and Maya Deren, taking in everything from the Pre-Raphaelites and French literature to Surrealism and more along the way. 


A true performance artist with a style all her own, she is a Carnival Queen with a show-stopping 17 corseted waist, a doll, a butterfly, a peacock, a swan, a silver-screen siren, a living Klimt painting, a sorcerer - and anything her imagination can create! Fusing old-school glamour with even older-school strangeness as well as an up-to-date sense of fun and professional versatility: her performance background includes ballet (she frequently performs en pointe), tap, circus (static trapeze or aerial hoop), acting and even opera: and she pushes the boundaries of what is possible inside performance spaces by performing inside a giant bubble floating on the surface of water or hanging swinging and spinning from a rocking 8ft crescent moon. Trained in Theatre Design for Performance at Central Saint Martins, her designs are created with a theatrical sensibility and entirely hand-crafted with an understanding of what they need to be able to do to achieve the effects she requires.

Hire

Vicky can be hired for any corporiate or private event, and being a collector of costumes, is guaranteed to have a performance addapted to your reqirements.A all round performer that can also incorporiate ballet, tap, static trapeze or aerial hoop, acting and even opera.
