About the Performers


Amber Ray is an award-winning veteran of the international neo-burlesque scene and has been performing striptease, song, and dance for over a decade. Rated for two years straight in the top 20 burlesque performers in the world, she is noted for her artistic flamboyance, lavish costumes and fierce dramatics. 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.

Karate Kandice’s performance style has been described as heartfelt, lyrical, andsoulful. She performs as both a traditional and fusion belly dance soloist at various restaurants, theaters, community events and festivals. Kandice is also one of the founding members of Raqs Caravan Urban, an upbeat dynamic fusion troupe that blends traditional belly dance with various urban dance styles. RCU has opened for the world famous Bellydance Superstars and will be featured in the upcoming DVD, America’s History of Belly Dancers of Color.

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 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 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.


Petula Caesar has been a professional writer for over twenty years, but made the transition from the page to the stage five years ago. A collection of erotic poetry she recorded led to her performing her poetry live onstage. She has performed at venues up and down the East Coast, incorporating her love of burlesque into her erotic poetry performances.


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.
