The performers were an eclectic group – from one of Toronto’s most known aerialists, Miranda Tempest, to a recent Montreal neo-burlesque transplant, BonBon Bombay. Headlining was Mosh, a classical burlesque artist out of Los Angeles who’s execution was stunning! After a nearly 2 1/2 hour show it’s not easy to keep the crowd hooked, but the moment the curtain opened for Mosh, the audience was a mix between speechless to uncontrollably expressing awe – foot stomping, hollering, whistling and screams of joy.
Performers: Miranda Tempest (Aerial), Steffi Kay (mind reader), Franny Panties (Hoops), Miss Paige (classic burlesque), Mosh (classic burlesque), Bon Bon Bombay (neo-burleque) Eyeclops (death defying tricks), Steve Winchester (magician), Papa Jimbo (magician), Dolly Pockets (human marvel).
