Syrens of the South

Production company specializing in Burlesque, Vaudeville and Variety Shows as well as other events!

The Atlanta-based production company Syrens of the South was conceived in February 2007. On August 18, 2007, The Syrens of the South produced their first full show simply entitled Syrens of the South Speakeasy Night at The Highland Inn Ball Room Lounge. Having been featured in Creative Loafing’s See & Do section, it was a sold-out show which proved to be the first of many for this new endeavor.

Syrens of the South, under the direction of its founder Katherine Lashe, has been performing all over the country for the past 15 years including opening for bands such as The Dresden Dolls and many others. Syrens of the South is proud to produce Tease Tuesday the second Tuesday of every month at Red Light Cafe which just celebrated 10 years and is the longest-running monthly burlesque show in Atlanta!

Pixie Twixt

Hailing from a background in theatre, movement arts and humor as a coping mechanism, Pixie Twixt flew into burlesque in 2019 and hasn’t looked back since. Pixie founded CelestialCabaret where “All Bodies are Heavenly.” You can see Pixie causing mischief as Dixon Ty Conderoga, and advocating for accessibility in virtual and physical spaces. A sprinkle of weird, a handful of glitter, and a whole lot of sass, Pixie is a force to be reckoned with on the ground and sky. Pixie believes burlesque and aerial is for every body.
