Moisture Festival Burlesque
With the advent of spring comes the annual Moisture Festival, showcasing an oddball array of live Comedy/Varietè infused with burlesque. The adult-oriented Libertease Burlesque shows are held in the round at ACT Theatre- the perfect way to see Evilyn Sin Claire and Belle Cozette’s infamous “Porcelain Promenade” number (which incidentally, will be performed at the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival this year). If you haven’t seen the act, it features two rhinestone-encrusted toilets and two super vixens armed with bath tissue and aerosol spray.
Each year Seattle burlesque’s NYC-by-way-of-Baltimore extended family Trixie Little & the Evil Hate Monkey return for the Moisture Festival, performing March 31-April 2 for five shows. Winners of the 2006 Exotic World Best Burlesque Duo trophy, Trixie and Monkey have both placed separately since that time.
“Once you win a category, they don’t really let you back in again so we took the opportunity to develop our solo chops and have been competing solo the past few years. I placed 2nd runner up and Most Innovative in 2008 with my Mermaid act and Monkey actually brought home the Best Boylesque title in 2010!” she explained to BSP last summer.

In other news, the BHOF 2011 competitors are slowing beginning to surface…several have been accepted from Portland and Seattle already…to be continued! Best of luck to all.
