Call Me Stormy

Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Babes of Burlesque: 38


Statuesque and exotic, Luna Rosa toys with the taboo, performing as darkly mysterious women — say, a voodoo priestess, an Egyptian queen or an Amazon goddess. She’s based in London, but has toured extensively throughout Europe, Latin America and, more recently, the United States.

She told one interviewer, “I watched a lot of Cuban and Mexican cinema, so performers such as Tongolele, Amalia Aguilar and Ninon Sevilla play a big part in my imagination when it comes to choreographing routines and deciding on the kind of costumes I want to use. I have an act called `Amor Voodoo’, which is based on a dance scene where Ninon Sevilla is dancing on some drums – the drums are my favorite instrument, and this is such a powerful routine.”

She conjures up the aura of a smoke-filled nightclub full of hot dames and dangerous men in this live act from the Cirque Rouge No. 9 burlesque cabaret, staged in 2011, in Vienna.

Luna Rosa, whose father was Egyptian, also has an act she calls “The Perfidious Naked Fez.”
