About Androsia Wilde
"The Bahama Mama of Burlesque" is the perfect tropical cocktail - a generous pour of burlesque's glitz and tease, splashed with the intoxicating and rhythmic flavours of The Bahamas. This Daughter of Starlight and Seafoam's performing journey spans over 3,000 miles- from the Island Paradise of her birth, to the Pacific Northwest she now calls 'home', and has taken her through the realms of alternative modeling, martial arts, immersive theatre, acting for television, and dance.
Her burlesque career started in 2013 with her much-lauded debut as the 'yummy' scoundrel Lando Calrissian in nerdlesque troupe Geekenders' initial production of "The Empire Strips Back", and has since expanded to setting stages ablaze across British Columbia: from large-scale events such as Shambala Music Festival and Capital City Comic-Con, to more local venues like Go-Go Bungalow at the Shameful Tiki Room. An avid pop-culture afficionado, Androsia can often be found creating geeky acts alongside her beloved Geekenders, or crafting new dance experiences among the ranks of multidisciplinary dance troupe Omnika In Motion.
In 2019, Androsia made history as the first Bahamian burlesque dancer to perform at the 14th Vancouver International Burlesque Festival with her act "Tribute To The Obeah Man".
With a commanding stage presence that has been described as "focused, sensual, and impossible to ignore", Androsia Wilde creates passionate and emotive performances that higlight the power, importance, and necessity of #BlackGirlMagic.
