Francesca Baglione

Profile

The work of Francesca Baglione and her creation Miss High Leg Kick has its origins in the world of cabaret.

The character offers a deliberate subversion of burlesque-style glamour, with the signature move of the “high leg kick” reinvented and remixed in shows like Duckie’s Olivier award winning C’est Barbican! Her performances dissolve traditional audience/performance boundaries, with acts that take the “punters” from their comfort zone and into new, dangerous spaces.

Her current interest is towards uniting the worlds of extreme sport and live art through performance: exploring their common grounds, risks, and thrills.
