MARINA THE FIRE EATING MERMAID! Retro-pop style performances are the result of her lifelong enthusiasm for preservation of retro-aquatic Mid-century & Polynesian pop culture venues & entertainment. Swim shows and stunt dances (fire eating, dancing on broken plates, laying on a bed of nails- Crazy stuff) are her forte, all with a touch of Retro-Poly Pop and Vaudevile/Burlesque for grand flavor. With beginnings at Tiki temples such as the Hawaiian Inn-Daytona Beach and The Mai-Kai-Fort Lauderdale, her continued work has led to worldwide recognition; being one of the last models photographed by Bunny Yeager – and even as a comic book character, appearing in Jim Balent’s ‘Tarot- Witch of the Black Rose’, as the “Mermazon Queen” in “Tiki Zombie”, and in Big Toe’s “Captain Seamus, Tiki of Doom” comic for Appleton Rum. Marina can also be heard preaching her love of all things Aquatic and Tiki in documentaries such as Duda Leite’s ‘TIKIMENTARY’ and PBS’- ‘Plastic Paradise’. Though bi-coastal, her home base is in Fort Lauderdale, performing her underwater swim shows at the B Ocean (Formerly the historic Yankee Clipper hotel circa 1956) historic Wreck Bar.
