The Hosts


Marlene von Steenvag has an international reputation as ‘Germany’s Queen of Burlesque’ and the European counterpart of Dita von Teese. With her background of the East 15 Acting School in London and her global network of famous artists, she brought burlesque from the little ‘Salon Kokett’ up to the big festival in Berlin. Based on her success she founded the Berlin Burlesque Academy and Berlin Burlesque Agency.


Else Edelstahl is very well known as the founder and organizer of the celebrated Bohème Sauvage. These 20’s-themed events enjoy a great reputation far over Germany’s borders since 2006. Besides Lady Lou and Miss Julietta la Doll she is also the initiator of the ‘Secret Soduction Society’, the crazy ‘la Fête Fatale’ and together with Marlene von Steenvag the ‘Salon Kokett’.
