Burlesque may once have been just about pandering to the male gaze, but it has now evolved into an arena of personal power. Within the community of showgirls in vintage costumes, every body is a burlesque body, and every performer is a storyteller-choreographer who enters into a dialogue with an audience and decides exactly how much they want to reveal. Join performers Porcelain Alice, Demon Derriere and Kelly Ann Doll as they reveal the history of neo-burlesque.
Part panel, part performance, each artist will do a short number that embodies empowerment, diversity, agency, and embracing female sexuality. Don't miss this fun education about feminism, resistance, and women taking up space.
