In Memoriam: Camille 2000


“Burlesque legend Camille 2000 (Camille Sands) passed away today after a lengthy battle with cancer. ‘The Girl for Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow’ was awarded our 2019 Living Legend Award for her contribution to burlesque. Her work, like her signature ‘Marquis de Sade’ act, consistently pushed against and expanded the boundaries of the art. More than that, she was an active supporter of today’s neo-burlesque performers, with a vocal online presence and a steady stream of performances at festivals and local events. She will be deeply missed.”–From The Burlesque Hall of Fame, July 28, 2019
