Part Burlesque starlet, part innovative performance artiste, part music hall Vaudevillian, and all dreamer..
Vicky Butterfly’s beautifully choreographed routines take in everything from the ethereal and the breath-taking to the macabre and the erotic: her poetic and retro-futuristic performances evoke influences from the Pre-Raphaelites to surreal cinema.
With acts reflecting her bohemian background, she is notable as a real innovator, using contemporary technology alongside a richly decadent aesthetic and lavish showmanship: incorporating her background in theatrical design alongside training in disciplines including ballet and circus as well as an insatiable desire for literature and history.
In demand internationally from Paris to Bali, she has an enviable roster of clients (including Beefeater Gin, Roberto Cavalli, Kensington Palace, The Royal Academy of Art, the Casino di Venezia, the Moulin Rouge and the Paris Ritz), was the first burlesque performer to be booked to appear in a Bollywood film and can also be seen in the music videos and stadium projections of bands including The Verve, Kings of Leon, Queens of the Stone Age and Paul Weller.
As well as being a cast member of the renowned "La Clique", Vicky is a co-creator and designer of the award-winning The Black Cat Cabaret.
