To date, nationally and internationally renown headliners have included New Orleans sensation Charlotte Treuse, Seattle’s The Shanghai Pearl and Chicago’s Bazuka Joe, Jett Adore and 2013 King of Burlesque Ray Gunn of the Stage Door Johnnies.

We are thrilled to add Seattle’s Iva Handfull to the growing list of headliners gracing our stage. She’s a modern heathen in the Burlesque world, an albino Grace Jones, both a fashion Icon and rock & roll burlesque star.  Mz. Handfull is a fierce, alternative neo-Burlesquer known for her inventive, epic, and oftentimes impersonating performances.  Iva’s brand of neo-burlesque presents new ways of performing classic burlesque, while keeping the glint of classic choreography. Iva was crowned the 2013 Kansas City Burlesque Festival Queen and has had the pleasure of performing across the United States, including the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, Tease-o-rama in San Francisco, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis, New Orleans, New York, and St Louis. She’s also co-owner of Haute Under the Collar, creating custom rhinestone neckties, so you too can be well hung!

YOUR HOSTS:
IvaFiero Productions

https://www.facebook.com/IvaFiero

SERAPHINA FIERO
The Tyler Durden of Burlesque
She is smart, capable, and most importantly, free in all the ways most are not.
A chimera of hyper-feminine physicality, irreverent elegance, and pure ferocity. Seraphina continues to push the boundaries of burlesque performance art with a versatile skillset and creative style all her own. She has been gleefully coloring outside the lines since 2011.

Seraphina’s Mayhem is 1/5 of the troupe known as Stripped Screw Burlesque: Seattle’s Dangerous Dames.  Raw and gritty, the Screws offer a modern take on Burlesque for audience members who prefer a lawless agenda. While Seraphina has no specific style, she has a flair for the unconventional, unexpected, and dark. She is full of ecstasy and anarchy . . . . and never offers any apologies.

IVA HANDFULL
Seattle’s Iva Handfull is a modern heathen in the Burlesque world, the albino Grace Jones, both a fashion Icon and Burlesque rock star.  Mz. Handfull is a fierce, alternative neo-Burlesquer known for her inventive, epic, and oftentimes impersonating performances.
Iva was crowned the 2013 Kansas City Burlesque Festival Queen and has had the pleasure of performing across the United States.  She is honored to be listed in 21st Century Burlesque Magazine’s 2013 Burlesque Top 50.

WITH ELECTRIFYING GUESTS:

HEADLINER
RAY GUNN
The 2013 King of Burlesque!  He’s the rough and tumble Johnny… and like your morning cup of coffee, he’s strong, black, and keeps you going all day long!  Ray, has headlined at burlesque festivals and shows across the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand with his smoldering, sexy, and frequently avant garde solo acts.  Trained in contemporary dance, acrobatics, capoeira, and pole dancing, Ray creates imaginative works of strip-tease art that show off his athletic ability and inspired choreography. Ray served on the creative team of ‘Beggar’s Carnivale’ in St. Louis and recently was a featured presenter at Burlycon in Seattle. He is quickly becoming known for his large menu of insightful burlesque and dance workshops.

BOLT ACTION
Who is Bolt Action? Some say he’s a robot designed by mad scientists! Others say he’s a superhero sent to Earth from another planet on a secret mission! Still others say he’s just some weird tall skinny guy who likes to dance around and take his clothes off in front of people. Whatever he is, he will surely entertain you for approximately three to five minutes!

https://www.facebook.com/mr.bolt.action

TOOTSIE SPANGLES
Tootsie Spangles has been performing professionally for over a decade.  She is a conservatory trained actor (BFA Roosevelt University, Chicago) and has a diverse performance resume including Shakespearean productions, one woman shows, children’s musical theatre, and circus.  She uses her arts  background to create highly theatrical and often intricate performance pieces.  She specializes in narrative neo-burlesque, performance art, and combining the burly art of tease with theatrical clowning.  Her love and study of the red nose led the creation of alter ego/CLOWNterpart, Oopsie Sprinkles. Tootsie draws her inspiration from Looney tunes, restoration comedy, current events, nature documentaries, candy, and politics. Tootsie’s unique brand of storytelling can be absurd, emotional, existential, silly, sexy and  is always entertaining!

HOSTED BY FLIRTY SANCHEZ
Flirty is a master of many characters and is always amazing, versatile, and beyond entertaining. When Flirty is not entertaining crowds she enjoys eating burritos and looking at pictures of animals dressed in human clothing.
