NOVA STERLING – Burlesque artist Nova Sterling finally learned to feel good about her body, through the art of burlesque. She shows us how naked skin is empowering and gender is something to play with. From her asexuality Nova Sterling explores being sensual, without the need to be seen as sexy. She will take you on a journey, exploring the empowerment of burlesque.

COLINA VAN BEMMEL – Colina is an independent filmmaker and artist. To her, film is a way to shine a light on subjects that have been hidden in the dark. Burlesque and sexual expression seems to bring out strong reactions in people, which she wanted to explore in her film ‘Waves of Burlesque’. We all have inner and outer judgements, but where do they come from and how can we move from there? The documentary has been a journey which Colina wants to share with others. Not just with the film, but also by creating space for conversation and connection.
Talkshow guest

CREAMY ROGER – MC Creamy Roger seduces the woo out of an audience, with a combination of spoken word and tease. Together with Fae Fortune he produces burlesque events, experimenting with live music, pole dancing, theater and club nights. From his anthropological background, Creamy tries to capture the essence of burlesque in the fairytales they produce. If a show is the cake, Roger is the cream on top!
