Madame Risquée is an alias and name of the business brought to life by Marco Buschman who started out as a retro DJ. Getting fed up of the lack of burlesque parties in The Netherlands, he decided to start some himself, together with a group of like-minded people.
Compared to the USA, UK and Australia it took a while longer before the newly popular art of burlesque reached the Netherlands. The mysterious Madame Risquée has been one of main initiators of burlesque in the Netherlands and has been at the forefront of most burlesque events since 2003. The Madame (co-) organises shows and parties with a ‘warm retro style feel’, scouts for talent and develops acts and burlesque concepts. A huge contributor to the burlesque community in the Netherlands, Madame Risquée produces a variety of shows including Burlesque FreakOut, Wonder Salon, Chocolate Burlesque, 1920’s underground Party RaZzin’, workshops, Dr. Sketchy’s Amsterdam branch and more.

Miss Beeby Rose has been at the forefront of the burlesque community in Amsterdam since 2003. Beeby was the very first ‘neo-teaser’ in the Dutch burlesque scene to tour internationally. Miss Beeby’s style is reminiscent of the golden era of burlesque, showing elements of grace, beauty, poise and elegance mixed with wisp of exotic flavour and gypsy style. Beeby Rose has been trained in Classic Oriental Dance and she has a artistic background in theatre design.
Miss Beeby Rose was also the producer of the Amsterdam Burlesque Festival 2009 and 2010, and producer of the luxuriously decadent Sublime Boudoir hosted in Amsterdam in 2012.
