The evil love child of Liza Minnelli and Jim Carrey”.
British Theatre Guide
An explosion of energy, high camp, big notes and filthy humour; Reuben Kaye pinwheels across the stage with reckless abandon. With an acid wit and casual sensationalism that is simply delicious, Kaye is a dazzling phantasm of anachronistic showbiz – an explosion of sequins, lashes and teeth!
"HE'S A SUPERSTAR BY ANY DEFINITION!"
(London, UK) Saturday afterparty host

THE HEADLINERS: ARIA DELANOCHE (USA) & CHRIS OH (NZ)
“THE MOST NAKED WOMAN”
Enigmatic, energetic, and deeply sensual, Aria Delanoche is a force to be reckoned with.
In 2018 she was awarded "Best Debut" and "Most Classic" at the Burlesque Hall of Fame, and placed as 2nd runner up for "Queen of Burlesque" at the New Orleans Burlesque Festival.
"WORLD BURLESQUE KING"
Chris Olwage is an experienced performer of many genres of dance and performance art. He is best known for his appearance on New Zealand's Got Talent 2012 as the ballet boy en pointe. Chris is also an acrobatics and circus enthusiast. He loves playing with contortion and challenging himself whilst en pointe (when he dances ballet on his toes).
Not only is Chris a performer but an accomplished costumer too. Most of the Costumes he dons are all creations that he has made from scratch.
Art Director of the Ohh! Lala! Cherie! revue since 2010, Emma Mylan is a pionnier of the Swiss burlesque scene.
Fire performer since she is a teenager, she is a self taught multi-talent artist.
(Ho Chi Minh, VT)
This vintage exotic performer comes all the way from Vietnam. She will bring you back to the early Golden Age of Burlesque with her classic fan dances.
THE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMERS
Just like sugar consumption on the body, her performances will provide the ultimate rush… and leave you wanting more.
Amazing acrobate starring in "The Hole", for the first time at Plaza Klub Zürich!

MINOUCHE VON MARABOU
Switzerland's most eclectic ecdysiast celebrated her debut back in 2011. Besides dance training including belly dance, ballet, tap dance, authentic jazz and Argentine Tango she has a master degree in theatre costume design.
Travelling and performing on an international level she has delighted audiences in Berlin, Stockholm, London, Buenos Aires, Vienna, Prague, Zurich, Rome, Warsaw, Milan, Hamburg, Geneva, Amsterdam and Las Vegas. She's also a very welcome guest at shows in her home country; Ohh! La La! Cherie! Revue, Cabaret Lune Noire and Bohème Sauvage to name a few.
Enjoy her seductive and subtle illusions full of spell binding erotism and female sensuality! This Femme Fatale will let you gasping and wanting for more!
Lulu Applecheek is pure fairytale madness - sweet, playful and always the joker, she’s the punk of your dreams. Her beauty and sheer lunacy band together in her outrageous costumes, appeased by her seductive smile.
After splashing about in belly dance, jazz and tribal fusion and hip-hop, Lulu Applecheek took a deep dive into burlesque and hasn’t come up for air even since. It was only this year she stepped on the stage as newcomer act and bewitched both the audience and the jury with her performance.
She was elected “Queen of Burlesque Stuttgart” in 2017 and was voted the audience’s favourite act at “Glamour Bangs Madness” at the Toast Hawaii in Berlin in the same year.
