A Transylvanian mail-order bride without a husband finds herself trapped in Florida surrounded by her broken dreams. Now she's ready to cash in failure for fortune. Known as the "Gymnastic Genie" from years ago in her home country, Svetlana Flamingo resurrects her talents to transform herself into a showgirl and achieve her life-long fantasy of becoming B movie star. Kitsch, glam and exotica with a generous helping of desperate housewife, Svetlana Flamingo tiptoes through the astroturf and executes high-risk dance contortion, alligator wrestling and a re-creation of a scene from "Slave Princess of the Jungle." Through the re-invention of herself, she finds the key to freedom from the trailer park.

Anne Goldmann started her physical training as a gymnast. After ten years of leotards she went into conventional theater and studied at ACT Academy in San Francisco. She transferred into weird avant-garde productions and Theater of the Absurd, flirted with film and TV, then washed it all down with extensive study of vocal production and world music. She eventually went to the SF Circus School and trained in hand-balancing, trapeze and acrobatics. She also learned wire-walking from the Flying Wallendas. Anne then went to Canada and trained in Clown with Canadian Master Teacher Sue Morrison and afterwards co-created and produced an award-winning show, "Does This Mean Anything To You." She later collaborated on another production with Sue, "extra-Ordinary Vacancy," which was seen in New York first in the NY Clown Theatre Festival and then at PS122 as part of the SoloNova Arts Festival . Over the past seven years, Anne has performed in festivals, cabaret and street theater in over fourteen countries.
