Risqué and Rye
The Thembo Next Door bringing heathenry, healing, and liberation everywhere they go. They are a baby burlesquer whining their hips through the PNW. A professional thrower of ass, and titillating twerker, they artfully dance the line of perfect pink princess and horror gore whore with their work. They are temptation in the flesh with the knees of a Sinner. The Genderqueer GodAss: Risqué And Rye (ris-KAY and r-EYE)
Kir Royale is a local burlesque performer in Seattle. After years of performing on stage in theater, she discovered the art of burlesque and hasn’t looked back.

Favorite past roles include: Lettie in Parlour House (WT), The Narrator/Evil Gabby in She Kills Monsters (Theatre Schmeater), Eat Me in Through the Looking Glass (Verlaine & McCann), Alice in Closer (SR), and Magenta in The Rocky Horror Show (UMN). When she isn’t performing, she can usually be found drinking champagne, reading a book about the strange and unusual, or enjoying a good board game.
