Kara Pender began belly dancing only a few years ago with a group called the PACK and then the Company of Gyspys. Kara especially enjoys dancing with swords. A self-proclaimed wallflower, tonight Kara is stepping outside of her comfort zone with an After Dark solo!
Michael Conway was born and raised in St. John’s and has been performing magic across Newfoundland since 2008. He started with birthday parties and has worked his way up to sold-out shows with large illusions at the Arts & Culture Centre. He blends classic tricks with original twists for a truly unique performance.

Andrea Roberts will be teaming up with Seraka’s own Melissa Porter for a very special treat. Andrea and Melissa have been dancing since 2005 and 2007 respectively. They haven’t performed together since 2013 and are excited to rejoin on stage for After Dark.
Stephanie Moyst has been dancing for over 40 years. She is an accomplished performer, instructor and choreographer. Stephanie has studied ballet, jazz, tap and hip hop but her true love is contemporary. For her, contemporary is the classical styles of ballet, just colouring outside of the lines. She has taught students that have gone on to study with the National Ballet and the Alberta School of Dance, and coached students to award winning performances in multiple competitions in Western Canada. Her latest project is choreographer with KidzRockNL, the brainchild of Zack Werner, former Canadian Idol judge. Stephanie is delighted to be back performing again after a 2 year hiatus to recover from a back injury.
Vivi Von Tease, Miss Kitty Fantastico and Tabitha Katz are the three felines behind Here Kitty Kitty Productions. They have more than 15 years of Burlesque experience collectively between them and have been active teachers, mentors and choreographers on the scene for years! The kittens are three best friends who joined forces to create weird, wild and wacky worlds inspired by the things that they are passionate about and they could not be more thrilled to bring some of that patented weirdness to the stage for the Caravansarai!

Sticky, sweet and with a temper that compliments her hair, Honey Fury has been tempting sailors off the coast of Newfoundland with her burlesque for the past decade. This siren uses not a song to lure men (and women) to their untimely demise, but rather the hypnotic ways in which she struts, shimmies and shakes her way across the stage. Legend has it that the mere sight of her legs has caused many a shipwreck (or at least a Screech-fueled bar room brawl). With acts ranging from classic bump and grind, to modern neo-burlesque, to comedic, to the downright weird, you never know what this Honey has tucked up her sleeve until its too late.
