Burlesque Artist, Producer, and Instructor
Photo by Rosie Lee Photography
For the past 15 years Bea Lissima has been gracing stages across Turtle Island. Hailing from Moh’kins’tsis, the pearl of the prairies, has performed at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender in Las Vegas, the Asian Burlesque Festival in New York City, and the Wiggle Room in Montreal to name a few. She strives to combine her unique identities into her art-form, and create an experience that shares empathy, passion, and excitement.
Along with performing, she is also a co-producer of the show "G-String"; combining live music with burlesque in Calgary, and is a mentor to BIPOC burlesque artists.
She is the Filipinx quoting Malcom X, the peak of feminine mystique, and serving looks while reading bell hooks. If the body knows the score, she's definitely winning.
