Poetry In Motion
A professional dancer, Paris Original is poetry in motion and
exudes the graceful elegance of balletic beauty. Paris calls on his
experience in dance and theatre to craft his unique style of
burlesque. Possessing a statuesque aesthetic, he captivates, inspires,
and wins the hearts of audiences everywhere.
Paris is a founding
member of Mod Carousel and a four-time Burlesque Hall of Fame award winner.
the Luminous Pariah
The Innovative Adonis
An international interdisciplinary boylesque character, model, and cabaret performance artist, Mr. Pariah draws upon his extensive background in physical theatre and dance to bring you inspirational showcases that are designed to celebrate the thrilling highs and questionable lows of the kooky world we live in.
Luminous has been sharing his effervescent style since early 2009. He tours the US extensively and has performed in over 100 international productions in Europe and Australia.
The Red Hot Manimal
As a classically trained dancer, Trojan Original is best described as "...what would happen if a cartoonist captured the disciplined essence of Baryschnikov and the campy styles of a self-aware Schwarzenegger."
His unique approach includes satire surrounding the incarnation of the modern male and a healthy dose of over-the-top to keep things lighthearted and hysterically funny.
The Them Fatale of Burlesque
Moscato Extatique is a classically trained dancer and award winning choreographer who earned their BFA in Dance from Cornish College of the Arts. They are a dancer for House of Verlaine, BenDeLaCreme, and Verlaine & McCann Present and is the newest teacher at Miss Indigo Blue's Academy of Burlesque
Moscato was the first AMAB non-binary performer to compete in the historically female-only Best Debut category in the Tournament of Tease at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender. This tempting tart continues to make ripples in the burlesque community by sharing their gender-queer, sexually alluring style with festivals and productions across the US and Canada.
