Elektra Cute made her entree into the Twin Cities Burlesque scene in 2010 and quickly ascended from cabaret novice to respected member of the local and national scene.
Known for her sleek costuming, daring dance style and intoxicating stage presence, Elektra earns her tagline as ‘The Most Shocking Woman in Burlesque’ each time she steps on a stage. Her performances range from modern to classic, but the elements always remain high-concept. Big props and costumes, intentional choreography, a dry sense of humor and a heavy dose of sex appeal are her signature style.
Elektra Cute had the distinct honor of debuting in Las Vegas at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend, 2013. Since then, she’s appeared in Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco, and New Orleans. Images of Elektra have appeared in Sinical Magazine and the 2016 publication The Burlesque Coffee Table Book. You can catch her in Minneapolis each Friday in her element at LUSH with Black Hearts Burlesque, hosting Dr. Sketchy’s every second Sunday at the 331 Club, and with the cast of La Re’veler at Icehouse.
Elektra is also recognized as an innovative and creative producer, finding new ways for the art of burlesque to thrive in Minneapolis and St. Paul. In 2011 she co-founded Black Hearts Burlesque, which is now the only weekly running cabaret in the Twin Cities. Elektra also facilitates the Twin Cities branch of international anti-art school phenomenon Dr. Sketchy’s.
Perhaps her most notable contribution to the Minnesota burlesque landscape has been her role as a co-producer and CFO of The Minneapolis Burlesque Festival. Her partnership with Founder and Artistic Director Gina Louise has pushed this annual celebration become bigger and brighter than ever!
Ms. Cute also works and plays as a model, stylist, and designer. She loves to partner with her costumier, L’exquisite Reveal, on vintage inspired custom couture and collaborate with photographers, hair and makeup artists to create stunning images.
