Anna Copa Cabanna is the "Always Entertaining" (TIME OUT) Australian showgirl icon who has performed her choreography, played her xylophone, and rollerskated in venues around the world. She was the face and twirling body of THE DEBASER on The Pixies "Doolittle Tour", sings in an ACDC cover band, a 20s vaudeville Act, a German Polka Band, and The celebrated Loser's Lounge. Anna is also the official go go dancer of the New York Rock and Roll Underground.
Anna was recently named one of "10 offbeat artists keeping the old, weird New York alive" by Flavorpill along with Yoko Ono and Bill Cunningham, and "really draws the audience to her" (THE NEW YORKER) with her voracious voice and fabulous imagination.
Anna's song about being harassed/misunderstood as a GO GO DANCER was part of an Installation at OCADU Graduate Gallery, Toronto in March 2016 as part of a Show/Thesis about the wrongful incarceration of "Deviant" Women in the 1920s/1930s.
