Named “one of Boston’s rising stars” by Stuff Magazine, Johnny Blazes is known for hir genre-bending, gender-blending, tongue-in-cheek performances. Ze draws from hir training in theater, dance and opera to create a graceful clowning style that incorporates drag, burlesque and circus arts to create works that defy categorization.


Johnny Blazes’ wo(n)man show is an evening-length performance that blends cabaret arts with theater to create a charming semi-narrative series of vignettes.  These vignettes are character-driven comedic moments that explore notions of gender and embodiment.  Unseen forces seem to possess Blazes in this journey through a world that is constantly pressuring us to choose a gender, a persona, a stance.  Utilizing a rich background in theater, clowning, drag, dance, opera and circus arts, Blazes fuses genres and expands notions of gender performativity, all while keeping the audience laughing.  Recommended for audiences 16 and older.
