The Bloody Beginning is currently on hiatus. Kat has just embarked upon another theatrical project portraying Marie-Helene de Rothschild (aka "Demeter") in the mysterious "Illuminati Ball". (see www.theilluminatiball.com) She is also the costumer for the play, designing and making the nearly 40 masks worn by the actors and patrons alike.

Kat's past productions include "Cabaret Exotica"; a show that combines singing and burlesque! "Dark Carnival Burlesque" at various venues around NYC, with a co-production with her companion Mr. Hangman. She's modeled as Marilyn for the "Bombshell Cookbook" by Dakota Kim. Ms Mon Dieu has also written for the Dr Sketchy's NYC Blog, performs (and occasionally hosts) burlesque in such shows as Dark Carnival Burlesque, Kitty Nights, Coney Island USA, Chronologie, !BadAss!, The Goat Girl Review, Hot Mama's Burlesque, Lincoln Park Tavern, Wits End, Shaken and Stirred, Nurse Bettie, Le Scandal, Room 69, Victrola Burlesque, Parkside (D20 Burlesque and Excelsior)...and many many others.

Kat volunteers her time and artistry to the NY Burlesque Festival, the Coney Island Gala Fundraiser and Mermaid Parade. She models for Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School in NYC, guest hosts on the "Rew and Who" radio show, and designs and creates her 1000 disguises (an ongoing goal!)

    June 15, 2013

    The Masterminds behind Dark Carnival Burlesque; Kat Mon Dieu and Gothic Hangman are moving their fantastic odd-ball variety show to Midtown Manhattan on August 9th at midnight. Kat Mon Dieu states it is a "Gorgeous Venue worthy of a colorful 'off-color' Variety show such as ours." The duo are concocting a night to remember for audience and artist alike for their debut at the Cutting Room (44 East 32nd St, NYC). Hangman is already designing a new "puppet" to introduce to the show along with his current "figure" Lil Horn, a Blue Devil and Hangman's hosting sidekick. Hangman and Kat are excited to produce Dark Carnival in a venue with room for greater performances and spectacles than ever before. "We got our feet wet and cut our teeth over the last few months and we see what works for us," states Hangman. "Now we want to spread our proverbial wings and fly".
