Seattle burlesque about town, in London, and in “action”.

Hot on the heels of DANCE BELT’s performance at Pride this weekend, Waxie Moon is featured in the July issue of City Arts, our city’s go-to guide for all things arts related. Waxie and Rainbow Fletcher (choreographer and dance director of the Can Can Castaways) interview each other, chatting about contemporary dance and their individual roles and motivations. The photos by Andrew Waits are spectacular, check out the feature HERE.

Yesterday’s Seattle Times also featured a roundup of Pride photos, including these two of Tempting Tarts Burlesque. Bare skin peeping out from a loosely tied bunch of balloons on a sunny street isn’t something we’re treated to every day (unfortunately). Check out the rest of the Pride photos HERE and the Tarts shots below:

This week Sinner Saint Burlesque continues with new run VERSUS. Last week’s show was standing room only, and with good reason. If you haven’t been down to Noc Noc to see these girls, you’re missing out. Their imaginations run wild on a regular basis with inventive themes like this:

Our world is steeped with conflict. The injustices of reality have been mirrored in both mythological lore and comics of today. Sinner Saint Burlesque presents Versus, running every Thursday until August 11.

Watch our valiant vixens sacrifice their own safety in service of civilians. These superwomen will attempt to use their provocative powers to protect the public from nefarious nemeses and vulgar villains. Will the wicked win in their wayward world domination and capture you with their cunning cruelty? Or will the gallant gals foil evil genius fiends in titillating triumph? You decide who to route for: the maleficent mistresses, or the crime fighting conquerors.

See our stars Evilyn Sin Claire, Jesse Belle Jones, Lady Tatas, Polly Wood, & Doña Dei Cuori seduce you with our superheroes and villains as we explore the conflict between amorphous animated characters, feisty freedom fighters and mischievous interminable idols.

We have a rotating cast of AMAZING guest hosts:

June 30 – Sir Eddie Van Glam

July 14 – Sir Eddie Van Glam
July 21 – The Reigning Queen of Burlesque, MISS INDIGO BLUE!!!

And last, on the larger world stage, Sinner Saint’s good friend and photographer Greg Holloway is headed back to London this week on another diplomatic burlesque arts mission: this time he will also bring boylesque to London’s Brickhouse with another run of Electric Burlesque. (Sinner Saint joined him for the last residency at the Shoreditch supperclub). Throughout the month of July Electric Burlesque returns, a burlesque show drawing inspiration from Greg’s recent photography project, also on display at the venue.

The Luminous Pariah will be performing his gripping ‘White Power’ act, described as a “powerful and moving piece that explores the challenging subject of bullying and hate crimes.” Paris Original, Sassy Delure, and belly dancer Ophelia Moore will also perform at the month long residency.
