Tilted Torch, DC’s premier variety show, presents their fourth annual Halloween production, Spook-o-rama. Wrapping up sold out shows at the Red Palace, Capital Fringe Festival, and Creative Alliance, Tilted Torch brings ghouls, ghosts, and goblins to the Red Palace stage for this year’s haunting holiday.

Dust off your headstone and join the creatures of the night on an exploration of the magic and macabre of All Hallow’s Eve. International sensation Peekaboo Pointe will rattle your skeleton bones with her wicked burlesque. Jonathan Burns will shock you with his frightful flexibility. Shakra will enchant you with their eerily haunting belly dance. At the top of the witching hour, Malibu will cast a spell on you with her vicious variety, while Miss Joule will cause a hallucination with her pranks and potions. The head boogieman is the sinister femme-cee Shortstaxx. With ghastly games and an outrageous raffle, Tilted Torch will make you scream for more! Over-the-top Halloween attire preferred.

About the Performers
Jonathan Burns (PA) was born with the gifts of flexibility, curiosity, and goofiness. He now uses these talents to entertain audiences around the world. His act has been seen on hundreds of stages at colleges and universities, festivals, and special events.

Malibu (DC) likes it hot! She is a steaming blend of naughty and the girl-next-door but with a twist!  She doesn’t take herself too seriously but commands the stage. Her acts range from mesmerizing or comedic fire play to colorful blacklight or LED performances. Malibu is a co-producer of Tilted Torch and has been lighting up stages across the globe, everywhere from DC to Costa Rica and every place in between.

Miss Joule (DC) has plenty to choose from in her bag of tricks. From burlesque and fire performance to sideshow and circus acts, you never know what Miss Joule will bring to the stage. According to the Washington Post, her “hips move in ways you never thought possible” and What Weekly found her “thoroughly entertaining.” Miss Joule was featured in the books “Weird Virginia,” and “The People of Burning Man;” has performed on countless stages in the US, Canada, and Asia; and is co-founder of Tilted Torch.

Peekaboo Pointe (NYC) is recognized the world over as the “Fastest Tassel-Twirler from East to West” and is undoubtedly “Seducing the World, One Stage at a Time.”  She has performed all over the globe, most recently headlining the Australian Burlesque Festival (2012), The Edinburgh Fringe Festival (Vive La Cabaret), Sweden (Hootchy Kootchy Club), Dublin, UK, Australia (The Burlesque Ball 2010), Italy (MTV), and Spain (The World Famous Pontani Sisters). Peekaboo has toured with Lucha VaVoom, regularly with Burlesque-a-Pades and has headlined the Dos Equis Midnight Revue Tour.  At home in New York City, Peekaboo performs anywhere there’s burlesque! Peekaboo is an accomplished teacher and regularly teaches her original workshops in New York and while she travels. Voted one of the Top 20 Burlesque Performers in the world and winner of the Golden Pastie Award for “Most Sensual,” Peekaboo is celebrated as one of America’s most dynamic and seductive performers.

Shakra Dance Company (DC) is an experimental belly dance company based out of Washington, DC.  Shakra fuses belly dance, West African Dance, theater and their own messed up senses of humor to come up with a unique fused dance form.  Shakra does their best to help each other learn and grow as women in modern day America, and take turns reminding each other not to take life too seriously.  When all else fails, we dance.

Shortstaxx (DC), Tilted Torch’s femme-cee extraordinaire, keeps the show rolling with her witty, comedic and bawdy patter. Always imaginatively costumed, sexy Staxx femme-cees with gusto, lustily talking up the next act or riffing spontaneously on audience-yelled commentary. A local burlesque star and experimental theatre veteran, Shortstaxx has garnered attention for her innovative, creative, sometimes outrageous but always unique burlesque acts. She is also a member of the Baltimore-based theatrical burlesque troupe Sticky Buns Burlesque.
