a) Ghost in the Strip Club
Maggie McMuffin is a professional performing artist who holds a BFA in Theatre from the University of Montana and combines her theatrical training with her experience as a professional sex worker. Her skills as a clown, sketch, and physical comedian have enabled her to create memorable characters for ambient performances in burlesque, cabaret, and as a go go dancer. Before she came to new York city, she was a stripper in Missula in 2012. This is her story.
b) Haunted Hallway in Bosnia
JZ Bich says they erupted from the malting Balkans and was washed on the shores of the New York City to become one of its night creatures. They have been performing in NYC for over a decade, as well as nationally and internationally. For 11 years, jz was a producer and a host of HyperGender Caburlesque the influential monthly, post neo burlesque show. While living in Bosnia in the mid-90s, they had an experience.
c) The Rotting Hand
Dewie Decimator is an entertainer currently living in Massachusetts. Long before she joined Rogue Burlesque and became, as she refers to herself, Boston’s worst drag king, she grew up in New Haven, Connecticut and had this terrifying experience.
– Episode No. 2 (originally released September 9, 2020)
a) The Old Woman in the Mirror / The Man in the Top Hat
Noctua has been known to stages as “The Empathy Smackdown of Drag and Burlesque” while living in New York City. Back before the wigs, the eyelashes, and the heels, they experienced two silent figures in their grandmother’s Brooklyn home. While these visions are shared experiences by others in their own homes, we have only just begun comparing notes to discover the commanalities of our visitations.
b) The Unphotographable Forest
From the city of angels, she is dubbed the “existential party girl of burlesque.” Seraphina Wilder, known for “legs so long it’s gotta be a sin,” has performed nationwide as an experienced and unique burlesque dance. Before she took on nerdlesque, and work as a DJ, she had a unexplainable experience alone in the woods.
c) The Lady on Fire
Incorporating song, dance, drag, and gender exploration, Satine S’Allumer has appeared on stages from Philadelphia to Brisbane to New York City. Long before they were burning up stages, they had connections with the supernatural—and they would follow Satine for years to come.
