Velma Von Bon Bon is a ridiculous purveyor of silliness and smut in equal measures.

Voted in the top ten UK burlesque performers three years on the trot, her unique acts have been causing slightly damp seats since 2009.
A pure cocktail of circus, comedy and glamour creates a heady mix.
Throw in a dollop of 80's pop and you have an original part clown, part comedienne, part showgirl, all oddball.
"Crazy" say a lot of audience members, often.

Before performing across the European burlesque scene (London, Paris, Geneva, Amsterdam, Berlin, Stuttgart, Berlin, Torino, Brussels ...), Vivianne Dellamore, from France and based in Switerland, started her artistic career as a musician, writer, and photographer. Her multiple talents are revealed in the absurdity, sexuality and violence she expresses in each of her acts. She uses surrealistic stories to create tension with the audience while she moves and strips to intense and energetic music. She likes to create special characters with original costumes.

Winner of the 2016 Geneva Burlesque Festival Swiss Talent, her burlesque is definitively unique, impressive, and very Rock'n'Roll!

Clea De Velours

Without a doubt Aurora Nova's stunningly conceptual and dynamic routines will be like nothing you've ever seen before.
