Mister Twister Maximus Sinsation (Mr. Twister for short) is an award winning male entertainer & burlesque performer based in Chicago, IL (USA). Having the background in both music and dance, Mr. Twister has started performing burlesque in 2015 out of hunger to explore his creativity and to change gender stereotypes. Through his signature movement style and choreography, in each of his acts he tells a unique and narrative story that takes the performance art to a new level. Approaching female-dominated burlesque community as an alley and a guest, he also teaches classes and workshops to promote positive masculinity in burlesque. And with the side interests in pole dancing and belly dancing, he expands his talent far and beyond the burlesque scene. Why walk when you can dance! Mr. Twister, he is the Maximus Sinsation of Burlesque who likes to get things twisted, and his influence in making America sexy again is proven. He was a member of burlesque troupe Better Boobie Bureau from 2015-2017, as well as various other burlesque productions in the Windy City. Mr. Twister has performed on the stage of many Chicago local hot spots, also in many other cities across the United States.

Guilted Lilly has been described as "a classically trained Siren who can switch from musical theater to jazz standards at the drop of a hat." With the face of an angel, the mouth of a sailor (convenient, given her Siren-like voice), and curves that would make even the Goddess of Love herself swoon, this multi-faceted flower of the evening is sure to surprise you. Along with her onstage appeal, she is an expert Stage Kitten who has worked with new performers and legends alike, and is always trying to raise the bar by showing that Stage Kittens should be (and are) a great deal more than just sexy outfits and picking up clothes. Lilly is the co-founder and artistic director of Shakesperotica, a whimsical combination of two of her favorite art forms: Shakespeare and burlesque! When she's not onstage, she enjoys helping the tech experts hang lights, build sets, run cables (she loves a good crawl under a stage), and is always available to help with a quick costume fix. She speaks French, volunteers at a parrot sanctuary, buys glitter ten pounds at a time, and loves to frolic. Lilly has a miniature poodle named Loki and two greenwing macaws named Isaac and Hayes. She makes floral headpieces out of naturally shed parrot feathers, and could talk about parrots for days. She also happens to strongly dislike talking about herself in the third person. Lilly spells her name with three Ls.
