Venus Vamp

Gothic burlesque dancer with purple fluffy robe

Venus Vamp is the High Priestess of melodramatic burlesque and queer performance art, concocting bewitching shows of dark glamour and mystical striptease. Venus has been vamping it up on stage all across Australia since 2006. Over the span of nearly two decades as a professional creative, Venus has experienced every aspect of performance – the highs, the lows, as a headliner, show producer, touring artist, roving performer, festival entertainer, tv performance and interviews, a dancer in music videos, corporate entertainment, private bookings and even as a muse for The Archibald. With this vast array of experience and knowledge, she has also taught many workshops and one-on-one mentorships which have assisted in new performers to realise their showmanship as well as embracing their glittering dark side! Venus is thrilled to be part of the first ever Gothla AU to share her expertise, knowledge, skill set and more importantly, funny anecdotes.

As a performer Venus has danced all over Australia with highlights including Australian and Perth Burlesque Festivals, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney Fringes, Melbourne Cabaret Festival, Art and About and Sydney’s LGBQTI Mardi Gras, as well as countless local shows.

Besides performing magical dance routines on stage, Venus is a prolific producer creating popular events such as annual Halloween burlesque show ‘Night of the Stripping Dead’, decadent Weimar Berlin inspired revue ‘Anything Goes Cabaret’ and is the creative mistress behind the successful mystical artist sessions ‘Drawing Blood Occult Life Drawing’. Off stage Venus moonlights as a visual artist, costume stylist, tarot reader and out-and-proud Witch. All of these elements help inform her work as an artist so what you see on stage is a multifaceted performance to engage all the senses.
