She played a leading role in pioneering the Burlesque revival in Winnipeg, Manitoba, earning a title as the most notorious burlesque performer of the prairies. One of her greatest accomplishments was being the headline performer of her region, at the 2013 Girlesque Show in Toronto, where she shared the stage with the legendary Tempest Storm.
"You do this artform brilliantly!" -Martin Short, Canada's Got Talent
She lives up to her name as a muse, having graced the stage, film, camera and canvas. Having performed for Ron Perlman, Xavier Gens, Milo Ventimiglia, Jennifer Blanc and on Canada's Got Talent, celebrity actor and comedian Martin Short compared her to Gypsy Rose Lee and said "You do this art-form brilliantly!" Her on screen appearances include Far Point Films' award-winning documentary Winnipeg Burlesque, where she portrayed Lolita the Snake Dancer, and danced with a large python. As well as a cheeky role in Guy Maddin's newly released The Forbidden Room, in a short narrated by famous American poet John Ashbery.
"Coquettish red-head!" The Grid, Toronto
Her classic performance style and beauty is reminiscent of a 1940's Hollywood star, which captured the attention of the award-winning Winnipeg chocolatier Constance Popp. Inspired by the burlesque dancer, a chocolate truffle was named after her, infused with her favorite ingredients: champagne, fresh strawberries and cinnamon, to match her signature cinnamon hair. Angela La Muse was also captured by drummer Jessie Cahill, who snapped a photograph of her after a performance. That photo became the album cover for Joshua Bruneau Septett 2015 album, Bright Idea, from New York City.
