Event description
The Virtual Burlesque Hall of Fame (“VHoF”) is a month-long virtual fundraiser showcasing performance & promoting discussion.

About this Event

From the BHoF mission statement: “We seek out, collect, protect and exhibit artifacts and ephemera of burlesque’s past...”

The Virtual Burlesque Hall of Fame (“VHoF”) is a unique opportunity to do just that; collect the digital ephemera of the quarantine times, and document, present, and gather a robust archive of the art form as it has been primarily enjoyed in 2020.

“...and we showcase performances of its practice.”

In this year where safety requirements have kept performers in their homes, that “practice” has been— by necessity—overwhelmingly online. Although gathering in person is not possible, BHoF remains committed to its mission, so the annual showcase planned as VHoF will both present and honor burlesque in its most prevalent current form.

At the present, VHoF will join in the movement to tear down the conceptions and ideas of “what burlesque is” and help rebuild what burlesque should, could and will be. VHoF will provide a platform to lift up those results and highlight the community’s vision.

The VHoF team is committed to curating a lineup that represents the many ways our community is performing burlesque, whether that is neo or classic, comedic or serious, political or whimsical. Judgments based on gender, race, melanation, body shape, disability, age and all the other ways humans wrongly judge each other have no place here.

We look forward to seeing you (virtually) in August!
