"Dottie Lux is the proud producer of SF's only weekly burlesque show (NOW TWICE WEEKLY), Red Hots Burlesque She is also instructor and performer, seen in New York Times, SF Chronicle, NBC, KOFY TV, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Bard and Mills College, NYU and many more publications, festivals and venues. Dottie is known for the absurdity she brings to burlesque and her ability to rule a room with a microphone or sway of her hips. See and for all this femme is up to. Catch her if you can!"

Alotta is at home on stage and it shows; be it on the mic as emcee or chanteuse, or in movement in a variety of styles (classic, kitschy, campy, trashy, dramatic, shtick, or just plain fun). Her vibrant, irreverent nightlife family inspires her to push and eliminate boundaries and rules, informing her lifetime of performance and training. She has been entertaining crowds worldwide and is excited to be here for you!

"Known as “The San Francisco Cutie with More Curves Than Lombard Street!” classic burlesque performer Kiss Me Kate is a vital part of the Bay Area burlesque community. From a very young age she could be found on stage in musicals, plays, and even the occasional opera. For the last four years Kiss Me Kate has been a core contributor — both on stage and off — to San Francisco’s Hubba Hubba Revue, voted one of the top burlesque shows in the world by the Travel Channel. She was the featured performer in November 2011 at Red Hots Burlesque, and can often be found wowing crowds at shows throughout the Bay Area. Her resume also includes the 2012 Southwest Burlesque Showcase, the 2010 New Orleans Burlesque Festival, the 2010 Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend, the 2009 Texas Burlesque Festival, and the 2008 San Francisco Tease-O-Rama."

La Chica Boom is a performance artist and ecdysiast that explores Chican@ iconography, issues of race, gender and sexuality. Through the practice of ethnic drag, alternative dance, theatre, performance art, neo-burlesque, and clowning, La Chica Boom provides a biting satire that points to contemporary and historical escandalos.

"Straight out of a John Waters' Movie, she's a rebel. KITTY VON QUIM is no fat kid in the corner: the sassy and sumptuous burlesque cutie has shaken and shimmied center stage all over the Bay Area over the last four years as a part of Rubenesque Burlesque. She has performed coast to coast always representing triumph, beauty and pure joy."

A Livid Cult Burlesque Theatre, Inc. Production.

-Livid Cult Burlesque Theatre is a living creature of sight, sound, and electric body magic.
-California's only Black-owned, Queer Burlesque Theatre Consortium.
Conceived by Burlesque artist, art history enthusiast, and pop culture creature Dorian Faust, Livid Cult Burlesque Theatre is a cutting-edge Neo-Burlesque experience that combines the sensual spectacle of Burlesque performance with the technicality of stage plays and musicals. The show itself uses a more holistic approach to the art of the tease by revealing the history of it through film, dialogue, acting, and dance. Livid Cult changes the audience's perception of Burlesque today by dissecting the components of a Burlesque show, turning each piece inside out, embellishing it, and propelling it to new heights.
