Dangrrr Doll is a multi-award winning performance artist known for her stunning costumes and unique interpretation of burlesque. Hailed as “high concept” and “defiantly weird” by Burlesque Beat, Dangrrr brings classic beauty combined with pop culture savvy and a dose of heavy metal to the stage. A professional costumer by day, this blonde bombshell is the producer of RAWR! Burlesque and the brains behind NYCC’s first official burlesque show. Dangrrr Doll can frequently be seen with Wasabassco and at New York’s famous burlesque venue, The Slipper Room. She can also sometimes be found teaching with the NY School of Burlesque.
Gazing out upon the rubble of a vanishing publishing industry, a young Dangrrr Doll was faced with the task of choosing a new career path immediately after graduating from Brandeis University in 2009 with a suddenly useless degree in English Literature. Her love of the written word, however, was one that extended beyond the page and onto the painted stages of theater, film, and cabaret; before long, she was drawn deep into the raw and alluring stories painted by burlesque. A self taught seamstress whose skills had been honed by night classes at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Dangrrr painstakingly crafted her own costumes to weave tales of love and identity, and her unconventional yet breathtaking aesthetic has enchanted audiences across the globe.
Dangrrr was recently named as one of the Top 50 Burlesque Industry Figures of 2014.
