Knicker Kittens
When we formed in 2005 we were the first burlesque troupe in Sweden. Since then we have had the privilege of performing and producing shows in many different cities, venues and circumstances. In 2009 we were awarded the trophy for Most Classic Act at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Miss Exotic World Pageant, and we have teased and pleased audiences all over Sweden and the world; Helsinki, Copenhagen, Barcelona, Paris, London, New York and Las Vegas. In 2007 we performed at the Nobel Night Cap official Nobel Banquet Afterparty, which caused a heated debate in the press, as did founder Duchess Dubois appearance on television in Talang 2009. We have been selected to perform in the two most prestigeous American burlesque events for the last four years, and work hard to foster a thriving Swedish burlesque scene, one that we ourselves marked the very dawn of. We produce our own club, Kittenville, and we also produce the annual international Stockholm Burlesque Festival.

Besides regular performances we have performed with live bands such as Nosey Joe & the Pool Kings, the Hi-Winders, the Barbwires, Betty Blue & the Boat Gig Crew and the Royal Crown Revue. We have also appeared in music videos for the Ark, Mustasch and most notably the Rolling Stones.

A burlesque stage show is a trip to another world ostrich feather headpieces, crystal covered costumes glittering in the heat of the spotlights, bosoms and behinds quivering to the beat of a drum or the meow of a trumpet, dancing, acting and undressing in a humorous, dramatic and perhaps surprising way. It is always over the top in make-up, glamour, costuming and self-confidence. It is always tongue-in-cheek, daring in its innocense, cheeky, cheesy and corny. More importantly, its an art, and to serve it the right way you need artists!
