The Seattle Erotic Art Festival facilitates many unique platforms for performance art, from grand mainstage performances to smaller, more intimate showcases which blend seamlessly into their surroundings. From unique main stage productions to gloriously unexpected roaming characters, attendees who come to the Festival see and experience performance art they wouldn’t normally access in Seattle.
Our 2015 Performance Commadore is Jesse Belle-Jones:
Jesse Belle-Jones, “The Modern Sexual Intellectual,” is one bluestocking bettie whose edgy antics and sultry grace will leave audiences scratching their heads and panting for more. With her strong dance background and academic approach, Jesse tours as a headliner and produces critically acclaimed burlesque shows across the globe. Her whipsmart acts are packed with tantalizing food for thought served up in a sharp, scintillating style that is guaranteed to keep her on your mind.
Ambient Art Ringleader: Lesley Carmichael
Erotic art is all around you at the Festival… on the stage, on podiums and walls and screens… even right there behind you! Our anonymous troupe will delight you with tiny, surprising performances all around the Festival floor. We are here to share moments with you: hyper-local experiences of love and lust, of beauty, of intensity and consent and connection, of passion and humor. We’ll be just around that corner over there…
Sound and Music Director: Raymond Forbes

They are loved by burlesque aficionados and first time burlesque goers alike.
Bella Bijoux and Seraphina Fiero
Seraphina Fiero is “The Tyler Durden of Burlesque.” She is smart, capable, and most importantly, free in all the ways most are not.
A chimera of hyper-feminine physicality, irreverent elegance, and pure ferocity. Seraphina continues to push the boundaries of burlesque performance art with a versatile skillset and creative style all her own.
Ms. Briq House
Ms. Briq House has been acting, singing, and dancing from the moment she emerged from the womb. Her first acting gig was playing the baby Jesus in a church play, and she’s still taking us to the church of tits and ass at The Sunday Night Shuga Shaq, the only monthly ALL People of Color Burlesque review in Seattle. Through her art and productions Ms. Briq House hopes to create safe and sexy spaces for folks to celebrate and honor their WHOLE selves, the good, the bad, and the ugly.
