Veronika Valentine

The venerated Veronika Valentine is an iconic and breath taking burlesque performer of seismic activity.

From a stunning array of feathers floating out from beneath her iconic silver wings as she gracefully twists 'en Pointe' to topping a ten-foot industrial steel spider's web to more extreme acts (see elsewhere on this site) or combining ballet art and provocative avant garde performance masterpieces, Veronika Valentine's beautifully crafted routines are edgy, beautifully crafted and at times dark.

Influenced by the likes of Audrey Hepburn, The Cure's Robert Smith, Stanislavsky, Peter Whitehead, David Lynch and Iain Sinclair, she is an extraordinary artist.

Having grown up with a semi-professional ballerina for a mother and a father who taught the arts in Latin and Greek, she thrived in a creative, musical and artistic home.

Veronika began dancing and performing at a young age and has starred on various stages throughout the UK as well as on both TV and radio.

Today her performances incorporate her background in theatrical and ballet plus modern training as well as elements of the obscure including musical influences, Japanese film, human and animal rights and a passion for design, art, poetry and travel.

Fusing vintage glamour and dreams with the grotesque, politics, controversy, the esoteric and the abstruse, her performance routines reflect the various interests, outlets and influences in her lethally-attractive work.
