Rebecca Johnson (Missy Macabre) is a UK based visual artist and showwoman who creates performance, costume and visual media.
Trained as a traditional Fakir over a decade ago, and now using photography and performance to reimagine female archetypes whilst exploring the semiotics of dress and the female body, Rebecca creates work that’s inspired by her rich cultural/family heritage of travelling showwomen and the myths that surround them.
Known internationally for her striking visual aesthetic and stage presence, Rebecca is one of the most prolific female fakir, and sideshow performers of her generation.
Rebecca has been featured in international press, feature films, numerous books and research papers, music videos, television programmes and has toured extensively bringing her unique style of performance to audiences worldwide. (See CV for more information.)
