Originally from Miami, Franky Canga is a multidisciplinary performance artist in New Orleans. Franky is a classically trained dancer who uses his technique to inform his drag, burlesque, and circus art. Known as the “gender-bending gentleman,” his art often focuses on deconstructing the idea of what it means to be Black and queer in the South. His Haitian heritage also plays a key role in informing his art and how he perceives the world.
Franky has been a part of several cabaret and performance troupes including Fleur De Tease (New Orleans) and has performed in large-scale circus shows all over New Orleans and around the country.
