Anna Fur Laxis
Praised for her creativity, humour and originality, Anna’s unique take on traditional burlesque performance has seen her performing shows in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, Milan, Paris and Tokyo amongst many other countries and cities.
As breathtaking, pulse-raising, and occasionally fatal performer, Anna is acclaimed the world over for her homage to Bettie Paige and knife/axe throwing routines. She is a firm guest to the Martini Lounge since our beginnings.
“I met Anna many years ago at what was actually her debut. She blew me away with her funny, imaginative and perfectly choreographed routine! Since then she has blown me away with every new act she has come up with, from bump and grind to being a goldfish … and now her fantastic Axes!” – Millie Dollar
Anna has been featured on many magazine covers and can be spotted on television and in music video’s. In May 2010 Anna performed her acclaimed Bettie Page Tribute as a Headliner at Chicago’s Windy City Burlesque Festival, performing to sell out audiences over the course of the weekend-long event. In June, she took her unique axe-throwing striptease to Hollywood to perform alongside Burlesque Legend Satan’s Angel.
