The work of Francesca Baglione and her creation Miss High Leg Kick have their origins in the world of cabaret. Her performances dissolve traditional audience/performance boundaries, with acts that take the spectator out of their comfort zone.
Francesca Baglione is a live artist whose career (under the name Miss High Leg Kick) has taken her from intimate cabaret performance to the creation of large-scale outdoor events employing a large team of artists. Francesca’s work uses collaboration and unusual approaches to audience engagement to create ambitious, accessible, thought-provoking performances. Drawing from her background creating shows in avant-garde London nightclubs, she employs humour, spectacle and contributions from a diverse group of artists to deliver shows which break down barriers and reach new audiences. She has produced, directed and starred in numerous successful large-scale outdoor works (for example Miss High Leg Kick’s Fashion Bus in Trafalgar Square, London and Audition Project Live) alongside innovative interactive performance pieces (e.g. Duckie’s Olivier Award winning C’est Barbican!). She is an Associate Artist of ‘post-queer performance and events collective’ Duckie.
