Performing internationally since 2006, Rebecca (Missy Macabre) works with traditional fairground/fakir circus acts using broken glass, fire and beds of nails, and is one of the most prolific showwomen of her generation.
Whilst playing with female identity through pain, performance and costume, Rebecca subverts the traditional roles of the ‘showgirl’, whilst simultaneously exploring her heritage of British travelling fairgrounds, showmen and women.
Using performance and photography collaborations – Rebecca explores the semiotics of dress, power of personal adornment and the construction of identity as an empowering performance ritual.
Rebecca has been featured in international press (The Guardian, El Mundo, Helsingin Sanomat) numerous books (Burlesque Italia, The Night Flowers, The Dark Carnival.) research papers, music videos, and television programmes. (See CV for details)
