meet the producers

lovita pop & Tygris Calcutta


Meet Kansas City local burlesque stars, Lovita Pop and Tygris Calcutta! Lovita had a dream: to showcase talented artists of various styles and skill levels by creating a fun and paid opportunity to perform on stage for a live audience. VSKC would NOT be what it is today without Tygris Calcutta: as a trans POC member of the LGBTQ+ community, Tygris is an advocate for supporting, uplifting, and fighting for the rights of these marginalized groups. Together their passion for creativity, diversity, accessibility, and proper payment for performers of all kinds and skill levels is what makes these events a unique and important part of Kansas City’s live entertainment scene.
