Karmen Sutra was born with glitter in her bloodline and heels too big for the beach of her small fishing island of Ketchikan, Alaska. In 2008 she decided to continue the family tradition of teasing and tantalizing and moved to a shinier seaside that could handle her brand of sass, Seattle, Washington. Granddaughter to Gaza Strip, a Bay Area performer of the Golden Era of burlesque, then gifted a ticket to her first live show in the tiny, historic Jewel Box Theater, she soon after graduated Miss Indigo Blue’s Academy of Burlesque and blossomed into a tantric twirly bird sure to entice even those with a rock hard resolve.
Karmen has become known for her classic, slow grind inherited from Nana Gaza, her earth shattering bumps, never ending tassel twirls and animated expressions. She continues to hit the stage from all sides, as a performer, stage manager, kitten and producer. Karmen is 1/3rd of the Emerald City Burlesque Revue, producing quarterly classic burlesque shows at the Jewel Box Theater in Belltown.
