We are truly happy to announce to you that our first headliner for the Montreal Burlesque Festival 2017 will be the one and only Miss Dirty Martini.
It is such a pleasure to have her grace our stage once again.
More than just a Neo-burlesque dancer she is, as our lovely Scarlett James would like to say, one of “the best bodies in burlesque”.
This beautiful and voluptuous blond is known for her punk rock style and her bold/audacious acts, which mix choreography and original stage performances.
A native from Manhattan (NY), she took her first steps in Burlesque in 1997. Quickly, her acts in Cabarets and clubs are noticed and she gained in popularity.
Then, fortune favors her. She performed for the burlesque convention Teese-O-Rama in 2001, and through her different participation to the election of Miss Exotic World she won prizes such as the Sally Rand Award (2001), Finalist (2003), and the Big Title in 2004. She also appeared in many TV shows and documentaries like The Velvet Hammer Burlesque.
In 2011, she played in the French movie Tournée, directed by Mathieu Alaric and rewarded during the Cannes Festival. This movie increased her popularity worldwide and established herself as a contemporary figure of the Neo-Burlesque scene.
She’s been crowned Queen of Burlesque at the Burlesque Hall of Fame.
We can’t wait to make you discover (or rediscover) this amazing artist, who had the chance to perform with Dita von Teese.
For the ones who don’t know her, Miss Dirty Martini, is this:
