What is your role in the Electric Rodeo Circus?
I’m a shapeshifting showgirl! I play both ‘Lady Vegas’ and ‘Frauline Maschine’, two very different characters. One whose world is encompassed with lights, money and flesh, the other hell bent on bringing down the system!
Which influences have inspired your work in the show?
My first act is inspired by the celebration of sexuality, of the female body and by all out rockin’ rollin’ good times! My second, Frauline Maschine, was initially inspired by a scene in the 1927 movie ‘Metropolis’, though I’ve tailored it especially for the Electric Rodeo Circus shows.
What's been the biggest challenge for you so far in this project?
Not eating all the croissants on rehearsal days was a biggie! I jest, customising my already established acts was a challenge, learning to use new props. I’m a bit of a lone wolf and a control freak in my performing jobs, so working as a team, sharing ideas and creating something together has been a challenge and a thrill.
What do you find most exciting about this show?
It’s pretty rare to see a cabaret show which has a running narrative, I’m really looking forward to seeing how that all comes together, also watching the acts rehearsing, honing their skills and utilising some amazing technology I didn’t even know existed is SO inspiring and exciting! It feels like we’re creating something really different and hopefully exhilarating for the audiences..
