Clara Coquette is a NYC based burlesque and drag performer and producer. She is a vintage vixen, a nimble nerd, and a cunning chameleon. She moved to NYC in 2009 and stumbled upon the glamorous, glittery, and geeky world of burlesque. Clara trained at the New York School of Burlesque, made her performing debut in 2011, and has been balancing burlesque with her career in science research ever since. Clara is the producer of The People’s Playground: A Tribute to the History of Coney Island, The Guild of Libidinous Intent: A Burlesque Tribute to the Venture Bros., A Dream Within A Dream: A Burlesque Tribute to Edgar Allan Poe, Hold Me Closer Tony Danza: A Burlesque Tribute to Misheard Lyrics, and the co-producer of The Persistence of Nudity: A Burlesque Tribute to Salvador Dali. Born out of a test tube of sparkle and spunk, Clara Coquette.
