Vampires are like the manifestation of sexuality in horror. A week before she embarked on a tour of Florida clubs, I caught up with Gia Nova over the phone while she was stuck in her Atlanta home under a sheet of snow. The house mom was this neat older woman who featured in the 70s at the tail end of when burlesque was turning into strip shows. I'm trying to make all of my shows a bit more mainstream and integrate more circus arts. She also crafts her own props and costumes, and mixes her own music, creating a backdrop as unique as her performance. I like exploring what is not traditionally pretty, as you often discover things that are much more meaningful and complex than pretty, shinny things.

Would you ever do a feature show in those? You'll see high fashion dresses that look like exoskeletons or modern remakes of fairytales that embrace the horrific elements. I will forever have crazy strip club pride. I have nothing against performing in strip clubs. Sometimes you find that those things aren't as scary or ugly as you thought.
