2014 Headliner - Cleo Viper

Adora Derriere - Wednesday, February 12, 2014

International Headliner for the 2014 Perth International Burlesque Festival:

Cleo Viper (Italy)

Cleo Viper started to do Burlesque in 2007, as soon as she found out there was a way to take off her clothes on a stage, blinking and teasing, including in the act all of her skills in acting, thinking, smiling and dancing. She then found her self completely lost in a world of possibilities: the stage as the chance to discover and bring to life all of her unbelievable and magical fantasies.

She started the whole Burlesque scene in Italy, where no one knew about it yet..and she never stopped since then to amuse and entertain all kinds of audiance, challenging and re-discussing in her own terms the sterotyped concept people may have of “burlesque” itself.

She’s based now half of the year in Milan, Italy, and half of the year in Los Angeles, USA where she lives with her partner in crime, Magician Christopher Wonder …in between she travels all over the world!

First (and only) italian burlesque performer to be selected to compete at the prestigious BURLESQUE HALL OF FAME WEEKEND in Las Vegas (the “Oscars” of Burlesque): her Butterfly Metamorphosis competed for “BEST DEBUT” in 2012 and her Crow danced and stripped competing for Miss Exotic World – Queen Of Burlesque in 2013!

She has also been nominated for 2 consecutive years in the BURLESQUE TOP 50, a prestigious list of the most significant Burlesque figures of 2012 and 2013 as voted by thousands of burlesque fans from all over the world on 21stCenturyBurlesque online magazine, getting in the top 30 in 2013!

2014 Headliner - Bella De Jac

Adora Derriere - Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Australian Headliner for the 2014 Perth International Burlesque Festival:


Photo - Caveboy Studios

Australia's Mistress of Tease, Bella de Jac is a darkly elegant whisper from the nihilistic 1930s, insidious, and sensual. Dancing with grace, elegance and reckless abandon. Soaring, surging, daring you to abandon your senses and give in to lust, to love...and to life.

Having worked extensively across the UK, Australia and America, Bella has performed alongside leading artists such as Catherine D'Lish, Tigger!, Imogen Kelly, Captain Kidd, and Lola the Vamp.

Bella is the reigning Miss Burlesque Queensland and was recently voted Most Graceful by her peers at the annual Australian Burlesque Industry Awards. Along with an impressive list of titles and performance credits, she also has a bachelor degree in Performance Studies. Recent high profile shows include, Hubba Hubba Revue in San Francisco, BB King's on 42nd St for the New York Burlesque Festival, the Australian Burlesque Festival and most recently the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender in Las Vegas. Bella is also a resident performer at Bohemia Cabaret Club in South Melbourne where audiences return weekly to see her signature acts.

Described as both an exquisite creature and a powerful and captivating performer, Bella's penchant for pushing acceptable social boundaries is cleverly disguised by the grace and glamour of her shows.
Bella de Jac is one mistress you won't want to keep a secret...

“Bella de Jac's appearances (were) the standout” Jamie Wright, New Adelaide Theatre Guide
“...a proficient and sensual tease” Jim Hildich, Rip It Up
“infernally good”...“diaphanous and delicate like a porcelain fin de seicle doll” Absinthe.com.au
“Bella de Jac, reincarnated (...) into a devastatingly sensual dancer. Her performance was the most complex, and by far the best.”Joanna Bowen, Australian Stage
“One to watch”Burlesque Bible
