Meet The Performer: Raven Noir, Appearing at Our Sideshow Show This Saturday

With our burlesque nod to the carnival’s darker underbelly, Sideshow, hitting Swansea Grand Theatre in just a few days, we thought you would like to meet another of the performers, the lovely Raven Noir…

Actually, you might have already met her – especially if you were at our Show Of horrors in October 2013, where she of the impressive headdress charmed you all as Medusa.

Perfect for our Sideshow theme, the tattooed lady Raven is a statuesque beauty with burlesque in her blood – yes really! She follows a family tradition of performers, with her grandmother treading the burlesque boards before her. Hailing from Sheffield, Raven’s darkly delicious acts have taken her across the seas to high profile shows on the continent and she regularly appears at top events across the UK. Her routines are peppered with inspiration such as New Orleans, the Mayan culture, witchcraft and more, and her love of travelling weaves a rich tapestry that all unfolds on the stage.

As well as all this, she is the resident performer and producer of her own Burlesque Noir shows, the next of which will be hitting the splendor of Blackpool Tower Ballroom in September with top international acts such as burlesque legend Tempest Storm and Vicky Butterfly heading the bill…

Raven Noir is currently sharpening her bed of nails in time for Saturday’s show at Swansea Grand Theatre Arts Wing. Doors open at 7.30pm.
