Lady Rizo & Rose Nisker join Burlesque Line-up

We are so excited to welcome these two astounding artists to our Burlesque shows at ACT - A Contemporary Theatre.

In the words of The Village Voice: "Comedienne, chanteuse and "cabaret superstar" (NY Mag) Lady Rizo and the beauteous Assettes ... host an incomparable evening of caburlesque. Their unbridled femininity will "blow your heart and go down on your mind."
Known in New York circles as "caburlesque", Lady Rizo's performances draw inspiration from vaudeville, burlesque, cabaret, and performance art to give birth to a new genre all its own. We couldn't be happier about having her company and her talent here in Seattle. Website - with video!

Rose Nisker comes to us this year from the San Francisco Bay Area. A remarkable aerialist with extensive dance training, at the age of eight Rose made her debut dance performance with award-winning troupe Gamelan Sekar Jaya at the Bali Arts Festival in Denpasar, and has performed extensively in Indian classical dance theater and Flamenco dance in America and abroad. Her love of movement took her into the air in 2005, when she began intensive training on aerial rope and fabric. It was a natural fit. Now she will bring that beauty and experience to our festival and we are delighted to have her.
