She has opulently made her career in the professional art, performance, and fashion worlds and worked with/for designers Thierry Mugler and Marc Jacobs events.

Malibu 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 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 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 also 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-producer of Tilted Torch.

Ruby Rockafella makes her burlesque debut with Tilted Torch after studying under the sumptuous wing of Miss Joule and the grinding hips of Shortstaxxx. This little criminal will rock your world and steal your heart with classic burlesque moves and a hint of the seductively strange.
.
Shortstaxx, 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.
.
Sidetracked is the brain-child of Shoshanna Hill and Kimberlie Cruse. Since 2004 this comedic duo have been gracing the streets and stages with their vaudeville-style storytelling. Recent performances include: The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, ABSFest and TribOriginal. Sidetracked promises to be benevolent dictators of mirth. Tributes will be accepted in cash, chocolates and cabana boys.
.
The Sweater Set dishes out bittersweet trifles of love, lust, and heartbreak with soproano-alto harmonies soaring over multi-instrumental arrangements of ukulele, accordion, guitar, glockenspiel, flute, kazoo, and mouth trumpet.  Award winning entertainers who’ve graced the stage of the Birchmere, The Kennedy Center, and London’s Bush Hall, you won’t want to miss these darlings delight!
