ORIENTAL LOTUS

Oriental Lotus is a neo-burlesque performing artist created in class with Seattle burlesquer, Cherry Manhattan. Inspired by my own experiences as a Asian-American and Hapa (mixed raced) woman, Oriental Lotus mocks and calls out the sexualization of Asian women in Western culture. Allowing us to ask where is the line between appreciation and appropriation of personal identity and culture. She’ll be returning to the stage with a new political routine fall of 2019.
