Remembering 2019 Russian Burlesque Festival
A year ago we staged our first Russian Burlesque Festival. It was our first experience and we stepped into a completely new world for us. And we were incredibly happy to get such strong support from the community and from our favorite audience. It's hard to put into words how spectacular it was!

The show was attended by 26 unique performers from three Russian cities, we had a full sold-out a week before the show, and a completely crazy audience with enormous energy and support.

Wild elephant covered in balloons performed by brilliant Victoria SemmyBird, Balkan heart thief Lana SummerVine, captivating, stopping time and hearts Kristabel Otem, furious maiden-bird from Slavic mythology Ulya Tsarevich, first boylesque artist in Russia Ellisha Fox and many other diamonds of Russian burlesque scene. Let's have a look at some captured moments of that evening!
