Avian Rush has been performing with Rhinestone Gorilla and its undergraduate predecessor, Alpha Psi Ecdysia, since 2010. Based in NYC, Avian has performed locally as well as in a host of cities across the country. She has graced the stage as a performer and occasional MC at the Sunday night live Jazz burlesque show, The Keepeasy at the Keep, as well as PowerNotPanic at Bizarre Bar, a fundraising variety show for families and individuals detained by I.C.E.
A wandering soul with a talent for making her nest wherever she goes, Avian has produced and performed burlesque, variety, and music for art collaborative shows such as, 158Salon, W.T.Effe., and FoolsGold Duo. She travels through the small blue towns of the red counties in California and New York, spreading the joy of sparkly delicious nonsense to those who know it naught.
Calling NYC home for the past two and a half years, Avian spent her pre-covid time working as an actor. You may have seen her in the immersive show, Zerospace, or the all-female identifying cast of Macbeth as Macbeth at the 14th street Y. Avian Rush can be seen in Burlesque Galaxy's biweekly show, with At Home With Rhinestone Gorilla, premiering on October 8th
