About The Plum Dragoness (i.e. Gabrielle de Burke)
Native to West Philadelphia, Plum is a multi-talented thespian, dancer, martial artist, instructor, poetess and writer involved with performing arts since childhood. She is known for her poetic style, vocal performance, fire dance, flow arts and choreographic flair throughout Philadelphia and abroad. Over the past 15 years, she has toured not only as a solo artist but also as founding member, core performer and assistant artistic director with a number of groups such as Archedream & Be Tru Dance Crew. She has independently released two albums of original work called “Renaissance of a Poetess” & “Live @ The Rotunda” with the project Plum Dragoness & The Elements. The studio project was recorded at Melody Vision with Emmy award-winning Producer Rodney Whittenberg, whilst the live project was recorded in concert at The Rotunda. This project is known for its’ fusion of multi-media, world beat musical infusions (ranging from funk, hip-hop, drum & bass to Brazilian grooves) that set the background for spoken word vocals and lyrical poetry delivery. Gabrielle continues to perform as a solo artist and loves the collaborative art of working with others (check out SoundCloud for examples). Since 2007 Plum has been the resident performance artist & organizer for the widely praised ongoing community performing arts series known as Poet-tree En Motion at The Rotunda.
Gabrielle also is a Yogic & Taoist Arts Instructor and Thai Bodywork Practitioner (check out Dragon Spirit Arts) and owns a fashion line called ~Retro Relix~™.
