Join Portland’s powerhouse burlesque* community in this special event designed for performers to film their acts with a live audience! Cheer performers on as they put their best pasties* forward on film in order to submit these acts to burlesque festivals around the country and world! This event will be an evening of fun for both the audience and performers and we encourage your support for our burlesquers in this special extravaganza. Our acts will range in variety from classic to *neoburlesque to comedy and everything in between. This is a great chance to see Portland burlesque at it's finest!
We simply must give a shout out to our Seattle glitter sisters for starting this fantastic show format, thank you Iva Handful and Violet Tendencies!
