Pony Pod - A Traveling Performers Podcast featuring Crocodile Lightning

Pony Pod - A Traveling Performers Podcast featuring Crocodile Lightning

Putting the Bangkok in Burlesque, crowd favorite Crocodile Lightning sits down with MJ to discuss their unique start in burlesque through a class confusion, self love through performance art (it's not Zumba), bringing their whole self to art making and owning their transgender identity.

Crocodile Lightning uses the art of striptease to rekindle the connection with her body and sensuality. Similarly, she uses performance arts both to unpack the socially-constructed notions of gender and to express her courage, vulnerability, and resilience. Crocodile Lightning incorporates self-compassion and mindfulness practices in her performances and teachings as she invites the audience to challenge the status quo and awaken to the moment-to-moment vitality of life.

Infusing traditional Thai dancing and traditional Chinese ribbon dancing into her performance, Crocodile Lightning has entertained the audience across the USA and in New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, and Canada.
