The Rite of Lilith
Part ritual, part spectacle… The Rite of Lilith revels in hedonism and is born of the heart. For those poor souls unable to attend the show in person, despair not! The show was filmed and is available for viewing as part of the #OldProProject.
The Rite of Lilith was a live burlesque performance featuring acts inspired by the ancient history of Lilith and magic contained within and around sex work.
This show is an unapologetic celebration, and audience members were welcomed to feast their eyes on the performers whilst they wove powerful, provocative, and alluring energy on the stage. The performers and crew called the power of Lilith into the space by adorning an altar in her honor, which was prominently featured on the stage throughout the show.
Mx. Pucks A’Plenty
Known as the Director of Junk in da Trunk, the Michelle Obama of Burlesque, Seattle’s Own Mxtress of Dirty Glam and ‘“The They Them Yas Queen of Burlesque”, Mx. Pucks A’Plenty is a roguish radical always ready to ride the stage. Spreading their black queer magic where ever they go, Pucks is always in control. They are a lover of leather, tall boots, floggers, riding crops and all things bad & bawdy. As a plus size queer femme of color and a vocal member of the kink scene, Pucks knows their politics, body, and sex are always potent and radical.
Not really raised in and definitely not born here in Seattle, but it’s the closest thing John knows to home. John is new to the burlesque scene but armed with three moms, a little help from their friends, a bachelors in anthropology from Seattle University and a weird amount of flexibility (literally, they can lick their own elbow) they’re ready, willing and able to take on the any challenge with style, wit and a lot of bad-assery! @seatownjaz on Instagram.
