After a nearly 10 year hiatus from the stage, Lucretia Renée Rathmann is honored to make a rare surprise appearance at Vespertine Winter Ball 2023. Lucretia began her performance career in Portland in the early 2000’s as a founding member of Serpentine- Theatrical Fire Fusion Belly Dance. The band, Faith & The Muse, asked Serpentine to join their 2009 European tour and also their 2010 United States tour. After extensively touring, Lucretia primarily focused on her businesses, Dark Fusion Boutique- as the owner, designer, and seamstress. Items she enjoys making are opulent belly dance costumes and flashy stage wear.
