Rubyyy Jones is a glittering force of nature! A Burlesque Hall of Fame Winner! And a ‘big, fat, fabulous, queer Canadian’! Trained in dance, voice and theatre, Rubyyy Jones has been moonlighting in burlesque and cabaret in the UK for the last decade. A provocative MC, a innovative and award winning neo burlesque artist, a pioneer of the Queerlesque genre and marvellous mentor to many, Rubyyy is creator, curator and creature of the night! From Las Vegas to Paris, from Amsterdam to Toronto, Berlin and beyond, Rubyyy has brought their signature ferocious style and focused disruptions to stages and spaces all over the world. From tongue in cheek sing ‘n flings to hardcore, heart wrenching ceremonies, Rubyyy’s work in ‘lesque and live art is a balance of dance, queer performance and neo feminist activism. In addition to their work as a performance artist and teacher, Rubyyy is also an actor and director, dramaturge and choreographer of theatre, cabaret and burlesque productions.
