About Tangerine Jones:
Inspired by the legends of Black Hollywood and the deities of drag, funk and glam rock, Ms. Jones brings her own eclectic blend to the Neo-Burlesque stage. No stranger to the stage, this voluptuous vixen is a classically trained theatre performer with an affinity for ethnic dance from Senegalese to Samba to Bhangra to Bellydance. Whether it’s with the writhe and wind of a Santeria priestess, the shake and quake of a samba or down home shimmy of a juke joint singer, Ms. Jones pays tribute to the African Diaspora and the Black Burlesque and Vaudeville performers of yesteryear. She seeks to establish a new cultural and erotic iconography for women of color and highlight the often-overlooked presence of people of color in our theatrical and cultural history.
