We are Hot
House of Tease is based out of Seoul, and its members are booked internationally. We are a theatrical House of burlesque, drag, and aerial performers specializing in spectacle, seduction, and strategically placed attire since 2015.
We’ve performed at Paradise City’s Rubik and Club Chroma, Shade Seoul, Femme Seoul, Kontrast Seoul, Output Busan, Drag Drink Play, Meet Market, Slipper Room (NYC), House of Yes (NYC), PRIDE: Seoul Queer Culture Festival, Mixmag Korea, Keller Seoul, GQ Korea, Unbridled Chicago (Chicago), Busan Drag Prom, Burlesque Cheongdam, and various nightclubs in Itaewon & Hongdae.
We also stage a season of mainstage plays under Starlight Burlesque. A Starlight Burlesque show is a production that offers high audience interaction within narrative driven performances. All of these productions are original shows with original scripts.

House of Tease x Starlight Burlesque
We are destroying the patriarchy by daring to be Femme. We are felines. We are fatales. We are non-binary, queer, allied, strong, empowered, bold, and beautiful creatures of creation.

We dangle jewels from our nipples and our beards, own our high heel footwear, and defy gravity in aerial dances and production designs. Our bodies have soft curves and hard lines. We are burly babes, drag queens, aerialists, thespians, royalty, poets, visionaries, and walking pieces of art. We use lipstick, lighting, steel, and silk to renegotiate our spaces from here to the stars; from stage lights to starlights.
