Red Rum is a multidisciplinary artist whose formal background is in painting and video art. Burlesque brought together the perfect combination of her love for makeup, prop building and horror film with the catharsis of a live audience. Drawing from a variety of influences she brings to the stage a unique combination of burlesque and performance art, choosing narratives that combine elements of sex, death and humor the great social levelers. Known for her unusual costumes and skilled improvisation she strives to give audiences something they have never seen before and may never see again.
Red Rum's inspiration is fueled by the Gede spirits of Haitian Vodou. The arrival of Gede provides an extra intense dose of the power needed to conquer life, to use it and enjoy it, rather than be conquered by it.
