We stage a Season of neo-burlesque plays under Starlight Burlesque. A Starlight Burlesque show is a production where theatre meets burlesque. We create experiences that offer high audience interaction within story driven performances. All influenced by the greater narrative, the burlesque aspects take on many forms: chair dance, fire spinning, aerial silk, pole, a-ring, hoop, and live Shibari rope tying (and more). Because our shows are originals, we find that giving context to the world of our burlesque plays is part of the interactive nature of our productions. We publish rehearsal clips, blurbs, surveys, photos and videos to our Facebook event pages, groups and Instagram (links in the navigation bar) leading up to show time. We have found that even without a blatant answer to "What is this show exactly about?" people come anyway. To attend is to understand and our greatest compliment is when audience members come for a burlesque show but leave saying, "that was a great show." Period.

We also perform outside of our Season of shows at parties and events. These performances happen under House of Tease, the production team behind Starlight Productions. Who is this House of Tease?

We are destroying the patriarchy by daring to define what it means to be Femme. We are feminine, masculine, nonbinary queer, allied, strong, empowered, bold, and beautiful creatures of creation. We seek to invert— both literally and metaphorically— body and burlesque expectation. We grab our phantom cocks, decorate our beards, own our high heel footwear, and defy gravity in aerial dances and production designs. Our bodies have soft curves and hard lines. We are aerialists, royalty, poets, performers, art and visionaries. We use lipstick, lighting, steel and silk to renegotiate our spaces from here to the stars.

A moment was caught between the characters Mr. and Mrs. Cumming during their Sploshing Act. This pinch-of-the-cheek was the comedown from the climax of our burlesque play "Le Sexe: A Podcast in the Flesh" written by Flowerbomb and Sacré Bleu.  Photographer: Robert Michael Evans
