Born and raised in South Texas, Vivi is a happy transplant to the Chicago-land area. Here in the Windy City she discovered her love of all things burlesque—thanks to the wonderful performers/teachers at Studio L’amour. Vivi’s performance aesthetic is inspired by the classic, sultry vixens of the 50’s and 60’s (When the cars fast but the women were faster!) with a little wink and tongue in cheek thrown in for good measure.
Along with her work with Original Tease and The Kiss Kiss Cabaret, Vivi has guest performed with Burlesco! and Vaudezilla. When she is not day dreaming about pet ownership or reading up on design theory you can find her exploring the cave of the unknown and finding the essence from within.
