Burlesco Notturno

In the nouveau burlesque tradition that waves back to Gyspy Rose Lee, Burlesco Notturno brought some of the Northwest’s most extraordinary burlesque and performing artists together for an evening of exotic entertainment on Vashon Island.  The nouveau burlesque tradition is firmly rooted in Seattle  and is celebrated in venues such as The Triple Door, The Pampas Room, The Pink Door, Teatro  ZinZanni's "Mezzo Lunatico" and many others.

Hosted by the infamous Mme X and Teatro Zinzanni star, Kevin Kent, Burlesco Notturno also featured international burlesque stars Inga Ingenue and Miss Indigo Blue – and sumptuous musical and aerial performance as well. Broadway veteran Rebecca Spencer sings to the musical orchestrations conceived by pianist Philip Fortenberry, aerialist Esther Edelman performs with live accompaniment by renowned cellist Jami Sieber, and Seattle band the Zebra Kings fill Open Space with wonder.
