If you came to the Baroque Ball, one person you couldn't possibly ignore was our spectacular compere - THE VIRGIN XTRAVAGANZAH. A vision in resplendently glittery costumes, she took time out to manifest a few answers to our questions:
What is your main performance inspiration?

What do you love most about burlesque and cabaret?
As a Virgin, who is never permitted to be "sexy" or "seductive" because I didn't read the fine print in the contracts I had to sign with ye olde Mr Man upstairs who we will not name but-I-totes-had-his-kid, I love watching women take their clothes off and give 0 fucks about it. I mean, #yolo, right? I love cabaret for the same reason.
People can be FREE in these worlds, and instead of being reprimanded for it, they are praised! The Church could learn a thing or two from this!
What has been your most memorable performance so far?
Performing in Club Brief's at Wonderground. The Briefs boys are totes hawt and FUCKING TALENTED and performing at the Spiegletent was a dream come true. Yas.
