Burlesque is more than the art of the tease - it's the art of the connection a performer has with their audience. A trained belly dancer-turned-burlesque artist, Eva la Feva pairs flawless dance technique with a level of playfulness and theatricality that has entranced audiences internationally. Whether it's teaching a group of students, performing for a party of 5 or dazzling hundreds under the bright lights, Eva approaches each experience differently to provide the perfect compliment for your event. In 2016, Eva formed Feva Pitch Productions, a nightlife entertainment company designed to provide specialized experiences in premier Chicago nightlife venues.
Eva La Feva was a smash hit for my grandfather's 100th birthday dinner! He loved every morsel of the burlesque and will be forever grateful. It was truly the most special gift. Priceless smiles and joy. Eva had awesome communication to provide exactly what we were looking for: Vintage, Flapper, Fan Dance, Sexy, Flirty, Fun, And a second dancer. Also we had it at a restaurant and Eva and Lady Jack created a classy dance that was just the right amount of provocative! Highly recommend!
She was the best I recommend her and will most definitely have her back to other events

What to Expect
Eva offers a variety of dance/costuming styles, from belly dance (non-strip, non-nudity) to burlesque (classic burlesque, neo burlesque, or commissioned acts). Eva will pull from her knowledge as an event coordinator to ask the right questions and deliver a performance that best suits the event.
Eva la Feva is a nationally touring burlesque and belly dance performer/producer that has been delighting audiences for over a decade with her fluid, stylized dance technique base and her emotive and theatrical approach to burlesque.
In Chicago, Eva is regular performer at Untitled, The Drifter, House of Blues, and additionally performs regularly at The Naughty Little Cabaret and as part of the dance collective Fringe Factor, directed by Lindsey Marks/Lady Jack.
In 2016, Eva formed "Feva Pitch Productions," and event production company specializing in burlesque/nightlife entertainment - her productions include:
-- The Clipper Cabaret: Burlesque and Variety Revue (every first Tuesday at the California Clipper)
-- Lush: An Interactive Burlesque Drinking Game (second Friday at Mother's)
-- SIP After Dark: Live Jazz and Burlesque with Brooklyn Britches and the Whispers
-- Quarterly burlesque at Found (Evanston)
-- Red Light Special (queer-friendly/body-positive dance party at GMan Tavern, coproduced with Gutter Glam Entertainment)
In addition, Eva helped co-found Burlesque Community Against Unsafe Spaces (BCAUS) in 2016, a community action group designed to foster safe spaces in the Chicago burlesque scene. In 2016, Eva was awarded the Judith Stein scholarship to the Edmonton Burlesque Festival, given to performers that aim to better their communities.
Eva’s belly dance credits include being cast in the internationally touring show Bellydance Evolution (Washington, DC and New York, 2010), earning second place in the MAQAM Belly Dance Challenge (Pro Tribal Belly Dance Soloist category, Chicago 2009), and performing as a backup dancer for Bollywood star Shefali Zariwala in 2012 (Chicago).

"Tight, succinct, and wonderfully enjoyable with her expressive face and quirky personality shining through... was Chicago's Eva la Feva, who portrayed a dashboard hula girl forced to obey the cues of whatever tune the car stereo dial is turned to, with a bashful personality and beguiling facial reactions. A super-cute act from a stunning girl, we're looking forward to seeing more from her."
– J.D. Oxblood, Burlesque Beat on the 2015 New York Burlesque Festival
“One of my favorite acts of the night was Eva La Feva, whose act had me in stitches throughout. Eva’s act took you on a roller coaster of emotions and her facial expressions cracked me up!”
– Havana Hurricane, 21st Century Burlesque on the 2014 New Orleans Burlesque Festival
“My favorite act of the evening that I was actually able to concentrate on was Eva La Feva’s Dashboard Hula girl responding to the car radio. It was original, clever, sexy, funny, well-executed, and fun to watch from start to finish.”
– Paco Fish, Pin Curl Magazine on the 2014 Show-Me Burlesque Festival
