BEERLESQUE: sounds interesting, huh? Here is the recipe for some ULTRA fun: Beer and Burlesque. As the name suggests, expect lots of teasing and tantalizing, while enjoying tasty beer. It’s an event that gives you a chance to sample more than 15 local craft beer, and enjoy a burlesque show featuring performances by Neil E. Dee, Rebel Valentine, Lola Frost, Burgundy Brixx, callio p cock, Lydia DeCarllo, Nicky Ninedoors, plus a hot drag show.
…expect lots of teasing and tantalizing, while enjoying tasty beer.
I know I don’t have to talk too much about Canada’s most popular alcoholic beverage, but personally, I do not drink beer and I have never thought of attending a burlesque show. However, thinking about the fact that in just one event there is so much to discover, I admit I am curious. I have never liked beer, but who knows, after tasting 15 different kinds, I may find one, so I am going to take this challenge and maybe even develop a taste for beer!
I have always believed in freedom of expression and what better way to express this than through dancing. Burlesque performers combine dancing with clowning while displaying comfort with their own bodies. They confidently flaunt their props and keep their heads held high while they demonstrate a palpable enjoyment of performance, which is so challenging, isn’t it? Here is one performer’s perspective on burlesque and body image. It’s a beautiful story.
This fundraiser will be held at the Roundhouse. Proceeds will go towards creating innovative programs and events that respond to community needs.
