Company XIV fuses burlesque, circus, opera, dance, theater and decadent design to create one-of-a-kind theatrical experiences inspired by the court culture which flourished under the reign of Louis XIV. Founded by Artistic Director Austin McCormick in 2006, the company produces 360-degree immersive productions at Théâtre XIV. XIV’s commitment to pushing boundaries is unparalleled, creating immersive and genre-defying Baroque Burlesque productions including Queen of Hearts, Cinderella, Nutcracker Rouge and Seven Sins.
