Dita Von Teese: Glamonatrix Tour Tickets
Keller Auditorium | Portland, OR
The Queen of Burlesque is back from her globe-trotting tour, and she finally brings Glamonatrix to the US! Come see Dita Von Teese at the Keller Auditorium in Portland, Oregon, on Tuesday, January 17th 2023 for the biggest, sexiest, and most lavish burlesque show in history! Enjoy a full evening of comedy and sophisticated striptease that celebrates diverse beauty and individuality. The “body-positive, celebratory show” will feature some of the most acclaimed burlesque performers in the world, including the legendary Dirty Martini, choreographer Alek Palinski, fan favorite Zelia Rose, showstopping newcomer Lana Kai Fox, 2015 Miss Viva Las Vegas Tosca Rivola, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo alum Laszlo Major, and the lady of the hour, the queen herself, Dita Von Teese!
“For me, burlesque has always been about finding my own confidence, liberating the taboo of striptease with fantastical stripscapes, while encouraging others to indulge in and enjoy their own sensuality,” said Von Teese at the tour announcement. “Glamour is the art of creating mystery and allure, and the new Glamonatrix show speaks to unapologetic sensual power with a fun fetishistic twist. I feel so fortunate that burlesque has come to symbolize a celebration of beauty and sensuality in many forms, a place where diversified icons take the stage and inspire others. I’m proud to be a part of the modern burlesque movement, and I’m grateful to have the chance to tour with performers who change people’s minds about striptease.”
American vedette, burlesque dancer, model, and businesswoman, Heather Renée Sweet, has professionally adopted the pseudonym, Dita Von Teese, along with the signature painted eyes, heavily penciled brows, swipe of crimson lipstick, and blue-black locks. She says, "I have my signature look, and I'm sticking to it, because it's the look that is one hundred percent me, and one hundred percent created by me. I might be a one-trick for it. But it's a pretty good trick!" She adopted the name Dita as a tribute to silent film actress Dita Parlo, and when asked by Playboy to do the December 2002 cover, they required her to have a surname, so she randomly chose Von Treese from the phone book, however Playboy misspelled it Von Teese, and the rest, as they say, is history.
