Previously based in Aotearoa New Zealand, this exotic ecdysiast has performed burlesque across Europe, USA, Indonesia, Australia & NZ, before importing her unique blend of sensuality and sass to London. Known as the Antipodean Temptress, and with an aesthetic as polished as a Swarovski crystal, the Duchess is always the tease. With over 20 years of performing experience, and nearly a decade of specialising in the burlesque scene, the Duchess has extensively toured nationwide in New Zealand, and internationally.

Duchess deBerry exploded onto the London scene in mid 2018, appearing as a finalist in the inaugural Miss Burlesque UK competition, and is quickly establishing herself as featured performance artist.

Over the past few years The Duchess has been a frequent headliner in shows across New Zealand, as both a burlesque artist and host, alongside teaching regular performance workshops and mentoring several rising New Zealand performers. A highly in-demand artist working with New Zealand’s business elite, Duchess deBerry created custom performances for the launches of E.von Dadelszen (Menswear Company, 2016) and Love & Object’s Olympia Collection (2017), while a 12 month performance residency at Las Vegas Club in Auckland (2016-2017) saw her hone her skills as a versatile and seductive performance artist.


No stranger to the international stage, the Duchess has toured USA four times between 2015 and 2017, performing across five states. She has been invited to appear at the New Orleans Burlesque festival, every year since 2015, and has twice performed in the largest touring festival in the world, the Australian Burlesque Festival. In early 2018, Duchess deBerry was the first International headliner of Vanguard Burlesque in Brisbane, Australia. Private appearances have taken the Duchess all over the world, from London and the Greek Islands, to Jakarta, Indonesia. Her most notable performance was at the Hateful 8 premiere, where she performed for legendary director Quentin Tarantino.
