Violet Moonshine

Zizi Zinnona is a burlesque artist and producer based in the Netherlands. Her performances are characterized by her keen sense of humor, dramatic flair, unconventional music choices and voluptuous body. Her custom blend of politics and playfulness, feminism and froufrou, comedy and curves makes her one of the Netherlands' most beloved performers.

Zizi produces the Dutch Burlesque Festival and the show Pussy Grabs Back, which was also featured at Amsterdam Fringe Festival 2019. Notable performances include Stockholm Burlesque Festival, Vienna Boylesque Festival, Hamburg Burlesque Festival, Oslo Burlesque Festival, Berlin Burlesque Festival, Bristol Burlesque Festival, Bavarian Burlesque Festival, Bohemian Burlesque Festival and Ferrara Burlesque Festival.

Violet Moonshine is a Dutch burlesque performer and producer and winner of the Dutch Burlypicks. She is mesmerizing, adventurous, cheeky and drunk on love. Violet’s acts all feature her signature spectacularly detailed and mind-bogglingly original costumes and props: from a hot-air balloon to a full-size bass!


She has taken her acts to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, London Burlesque Festival, Milan Extraordinaire, New Forbidden Burlesque - Brussels,  Taormina Burlesque Festival, the Croatian Burlesque and Cabaret Festival, the Glasgow Festival of Burlesque and has won the last Dutch Burlypicks.

Next to performing she loves to pass on the fun, the love, the body positive vibes and empower women through workshops.
