Baby Warhol is an oracle for the new age, a guru with no message, just a coruscating wit and waspish sense of logic. Whilst bearing an uncanny beyond the grave resemblance, the baby is no relation to the artist.
Over the years the baby has built up a reputation for ruthless repartee and a cult following by appearing during other shows including DNA Cabaret and The Lennie and Morris Show manifesting at odd intervals to answer questions from the audience covering the personal, the philosophical and the improper. Knowing that audiences are hungry for the baby he is now in free orbit.

Laura (Loops) Davies
Laura began her dance training from the age of three. She started with ballet, then went on to learn tap, modern, jazz, contemporary and lyrical. Whilst training she took part in many competitions and shows, then in 2010 graduated from Winchester University with a degree in Choreography and Dance and Performing Arts.
It was a couple of years later when she discovered the hoop, and soon became captivated by the wonderful world of flow arts, incorporating all of her dance training into these new skills. Fire hoop, fire dancing, body burning and fire eating soon became second nature and she realised that flow arts and fire performing was something she would like to pursue.
In 2015, she went to Romania with a charity called The Flying Seagull Project. They went to various orphanages and schools, putting on shows and running workshops in music, circus and dance. In 2016 she went to Cambodia where she performed and led workshops at Freeflow Fire and Arts Festival, then onto Thailand where she performed at Shambhala In Your Heart Festival.
Laura has been working with Voodoo for the last 2 years.
