She produces and stars in several local and touring productions including KiKi's Sordid Sideshow, KiKi Maroon's Burly Q Lounge, and The BCBC Burlesque and Circus Festival.

A chance visit to Paris’ legendary Moulin Rouge at the tender age 12, surrounded by boobies and bubbly, thrust Sugar Vixen’s destiny in one sole glittery direction. Entering the realm of burlesque with 7 years of professional hip hop, jazz ballet and salsa dance training under her belt, Sugar’s saucy bump ’n’ grind, fiery energy and punk rock attitude set the stage ablaze. Sugar Vixen has performed in the Montreal Burlesque Festival, the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the Dita Von Teese Montreal show and the Calgary International Burlesque Festival. A music aficionado, feminist activist, and fierce rock ’n’ roll queen, Sugar Vixen is miss sugar and spice but nothing nice, and the rockstar of Montreal burlesque.
Vivacious Miss Audacious
Vivacious Miss Audacious, the flame haired Whirlwind with the Crimson Grin, is an independent showgirl and producer who has her hips and hands in a myriad of art and entertainment ventures. Known for her spunky energy and mega watt smile, she has toured extensively across the USA and beyond. Highlights include a tour across Australia with the renowned Pretty Things Peepshow, headlining the Gangster's Ball 2013, VIP Gala performances at the London Burlesque Festival 2016, appearances at the 2017 Toulouse Burlesque Festival in France, the Ibiza Burlesque Festival 2017 in Spain and competing for the Amsterdam Burlesque Award 2017. Vivacious Miss Audacious was one of the early modern variety performers to pair hooping with burlesque and loves to showcase her unique brand of vibrant hoop dance, acrobatics and circus arts with a mix of comedy, fierce striptease and glamour.
This Burly Qutie was on her drill team, but then discovered pole and got a little naughty! Not only is she sexy, but she's also super sweet, spending her free time helping fundraise and volunteer with The Benefit Betties. We are so honored to introduce: Wynter Harlow!

Arty Dodger (Dallas circus)
A small town boy with Southern charm, Arty Dodger has spent years honing his craft of the art of juggling and balance. With the influences of early vaudeville and variety performers, Arty boasts a wide repertoire, including stilt walking, fire eating and hat, cane, and cigar manipulation as well as high energy juggling with fire, knives, and any other inanimate juggling objects. Arty Dodger is a dangerously sophisticated Southern gentleman juggler. A native to the stage, his ability for variety lends itself to adaptability in performing including sideshows, Burlesque halls, variety shows, festivals, carnivals, corporate functions, and any other juggling buffooneries that beseech him. Arty Dodger is a dapper dabbler in danger, a virtuoso of vaudeville, the Beethoven of balance, a juggernaut of juggle, and devourer incendium.
Aria Delanoche's swinging hips spark a glimmer of light in the dark of the night. She's a dashing dancer, an undulating undresser, and a natural born stage queen. After a rogue tsunami caused by her twerking left hundreds in Chicago homeless, soaking wet and drooling, she fled to Montreal where she unfurled her wings and took the town's hearts by storm. Her performances, while diverse in style, are always guided by an elevated visual sensibility, a trait informed by years of fashion styling and photography. In just two years on the scene, she has performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the Dita Von Teese Montreal show, Just for Laughs Festival, the Vermont Burlesque Festival, the Monde Ose Bal Burlesque, the Bagel Neo-Burlesque Expo, produced and starred in a Fringe Festival cabaret, and joined Canada’s finest troupe of freaks the Blue Mushroom Sirkus Psyshow.
