We have completed the most amazing seventh Ibiza Burlesque Festival 2023.

So here’s a huge thank you post.

Where can we begin to thank all who contributed to the magic of the BEST ever Ibiza Burlesque Festival?
We run this thing on passion and out of suitcase every year but we know we pull off a truly world-class show and no-one would ever know!

Thanks Marc Durif, Eurostar and Cafe Del Mar. You helped to complete a mental health recovery circle as Sapphira was comforted by the song Tones in the year 2000 during her breakdown and it’s amazing years later to have connected with Marc via a Eurostar journey from London to Paris.

Thank you to Aperture Terrace who are so accommodating. It’s incredible having their support.

Thanks to our long-standing Ibiza volunteers and crew, Curvy Curry, Eddie Ibiza, Renata Kverh and Eduardo Ibiza Producciones.

Also, the new additions to the volunteer team Buzz, Caramella Cream and Frivolity Vixen (who made the loveliest speech for Sapphira’s CEO Award presentation.)

Thanks to all the artists, this year and previous years, if you didn’t support and get behind it we wouldn’t have a festival.

We’ve won an award!

Well done to our founder, Priscilla Silcock (Sapphira) for being recognised by the CEO Monthly CEO Awards as the Ibiza Burlesque Festival enters the 7th year.

The Most Influential CEO victors for 2023 are handpicked by CEO Monthly Magazine and are based purely on comprehensive analysis and research undertaken by the wider group.

Each year CEO Monthly looks to celebrate those individuals who consistently show noteworthy leadership qualities and maintain a crucial role within their companies, striving for excellence in every product or service that they put out to their clientele and customers.

Sapphira says “I am honoured to accept this award but I accept it on behalf of my team and all the volunteers because without them we wouldn’t have the Ibiza Burlesque Festival. I hope this will signify the next seven years and beyond of bringing the best of burlesque to Ibiza. Thank you to all the businesses, performers and supporters who have made this event what it is today.”

Sapphira and the Ibiza Burlesque Festival have additionally been nominated for two other prestigious titles.

 Shortlisted – Most Inspiring CEO 2023- IE Women Lead
 Nominated – Best Companies To Watch 2023 – Business Insight Review

We are all so delighted to share this news and we know our 2023 show will be the best year yet.

It was a pleasure for the Ibiza Burlesque Festival producers Sapphira & Tonestepa to be invited to the industry opening of Lio London.

The Ibizan heavyweights of high-end glitz and glamour have made it to Leicester Square in London’s capital.

They opened officially on Saturday 17th March and will be spicing up the nightlife in all the right ways!

It is said you haven’t been to Ibiza if you haven’t been to Lio and now the high-octane exhilarating performance energy is on the doorstep for Londoners.

Sapphira came to London from Australia seeking the kind of show production that would set hearts racing. Instead, she found herself drawn to Ibiza after a jaunt in 2006 whisked her to Pacha, Space, Bora Bora and DC10.

She was so inspired she began plotting a Burlesque in Ibiza project and later set up the Ibiza Burlesque Festival because of the unrivalled show production and boundary-defying edginess on the island.

Lio has been inspirational since Sapphira & Tonestepa first saw the show at the waterfront Marina Botafoch location and now the excellence continues in London’s capital.

Best of all, the company, owned by Pacha Group, has revived and enhanced the iconic space of Cafe De Paris to which all Londoner’s owe them a debt of gratitude.

This exceptional theatre and cabaret space has entertained generations of Londoners for over a century (even being known as a haunt for Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner and Noel Coward) and it sadly had to close in the pandemic like many other landmark locations.

Thanks to Lio London, the magic of Cafe De Paris lives on and not only is the beautiful interior renovation true to the legacy we know and love, it’s magically enhanced and improved.

Behind the Ibiza Burlesque Festival is the production company known as Sapphira’s Showtime with a motive to elevate, expand and, where needed, improve the professionalism of the burlesque industry.

We love burlesque and believe it is so life-changing that we started teaching classes with our company in London over 12 years ago and we have never looked back.

Sapphira’s Showtime is now proud to have worked with over 500 performers, contracted dance instructors and professionals worldwide along with producing some 200 events, one of them a successful Record Setter World Record Attempt for the Fastest Burlesque Glove Peel Relay.

In all this time of teaching and creating events, we have dealt with a huge scope of people linked to burlesque.

– performers
– multinational corporate and blue chip companies
– dance studio owners
– graphic designers
– print production houses
– costume designers
– photographers & filmmakers & videographers
– press outlets, broadcast TV, newspapers, magazines, podcasts & radio

As we opened up our Ibiza Burlesque Festival applications, we realised that performers needed a training programme to help them market their talents and know how to connect the dots between their dreams and getting support from businesses, thus:

Boost Your Burlesque Strategy was born!

This programme is a coaching programme facilitated by festival director, Sapphira.

It has expanded beyond the Ibiza Burlesque Festival because we have found performers all over the world contacting us to be part of it.

It has focus modules delivered as self-study elements on the World Burlesque Academy App, as well as live Zoom tutorials to learn together.

So far we have:

– 17 countries
– 52 graduates
– major press features in TV, print and radio for artists in Poland, Finland, Sweden, USA, UK & South Africa
