Biography

MAGENTA LUST - Lust by name, lust by nature :) xoxo

Started performing in October 2009, with a solo act in Club Wonka's first halloween show. A more classic act (rather than bloody), with an added surprise of knife twirling, was well received and Magenta Lust's love of burlesque grew.
Have performed with Club Wonka (now disbanded) from then on in several shows (including a debut performance in Aberdeen with Obedience School), the last being Club Wonka's Garden of Evil, 12th Feb 2011.

Myself and a few of the other performers have continued on in our very own troupe, offering a show with more variety.
We have now decided that the big wide world awaits, and we want to perform places other than Dundee.
We have many strings to our bows - Burlesque (Classic, Comedy, Horror, Alternative/Twisted, Carnival (one act involves performing with a 4 foot long tail...)
- Fire Eating
- Knife Twirling
- Magic and Hypnotism
- Singing
...the list is endless...

Influences include:

- Burlesquers = Gypsy Rose Lee, Immodesty Blaize, Dirty Martini
- Comic Book Legend = Poison Ivy, Storm, Two-Face, Wonder Woman etc
- Various music = Mindless Self Indulgence, Tito and the Tarantulas, Emika, Nine Inch Nails, Alice Cooper
- Various films = Resevoir Dogs, Secretary
