The Cat's Whiskers

Wonderment Presents

Burlesque starlet, innovative performance artiste, illusionista, music hall Vaudevillian, theatrical designer and all dreamer...

Whether it’s clouds of butterflies that fly out from her clothes as she hovers en Pointe, a Kinetic glittering crescent moon or a Lynchian slant on Weimar era erotic dance, Vicky Butterfly’s beautifully choreographed routines take in everything from the ethereal and the breath-taking to the macabre and the erotic: with inspirations including Anita Berber, Loie Fuller, the Marchesa Luisa Casati and Maya Deren, her poetic and retro-futuristic performances evoke influences from the Pre-Raphaelites and French literature to Surrealism and more...

The daughter of an Irish showgirl and an eccentric Viennese aristocrat, her work reflects her bohemian upbringing: notable as a real innovator, she uses contemporary technology alongside a richly decadent aesthetic and lavishly sensual showmanship, incorporating her background in theatrical design alongside training in disciplines including ballet, lyrical dance, opera and circus as well as an insatiable desire for literature and history.

Always in demand internationally from Paris to Bali, she has an enviable roster of clients (including Beefeater Gin, Roberto Cavalli, the Sugababes, Kensington Palace, The Royal Academy of Art, the Moulin Rouge, the Casino di Venezia, Maserati and the Paris Ritz), a clutch of sparkling reviews and appearances on the covers and in the pages of exclusive magazines around the world. She was the first burlesque performer to be booked to appear in a Bollywood film and can also be seen live with bands such as Röyksopp, spotted in music videos and stadium projections by top bands (including Fleetwood Mac, The Verve, Kings of Leon, The Fratellis, Queens of the Stone Age and Paul Weller) and even The Paul O’Grady Show and The Crown, as well as speaking on programmes such as BBC4’s “What a Performance! Pioneers of Popular Entertainment” with Frank Skinner and Suzy Klein.

She was a long-standingcast member of circus variety trailblazers La Clique and won the trophy for “Most Dazzling Dancer” at The Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas in 2016. Since 2011, she has embodied the role of "The Starlet" in the long-running iconic Berlin production of "Kabarett der Namenlosen".
