Zoe Ziegfeld is a Brooklyn-based burlesque dancer, sideshow performer, and professional mischief-maker. She is the co-producer of a monthly nightlife spectacle called the Fuck You Revue in Bushwick, and a member of the award-winning queer performance collective Switch n’ Play. Zoe recently made history as the first snake charmer to perform with the Metropolitan Opera, and she is an ongoing cast member of the historic Coney Island Circus Sideshow. She also moonlights as an assistant to RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9 winner Sasha Velour. Zoe has been featured in the New York Times for her performances, and she received the Brooklyn Nightlife Award for Best Circus Performer 2017. She holds a bachelor’s degree in performance and installation art, and she’s not afraid to use it – she is especially interested in curating live arts events that empower marginalized populations and challenge the status quo. She can be found on highbrow and lowbrow stages throughout NYC and beyond.
