The Vancouver International Burlesque Festival returns to the city with a tantalizing lineup of sassy, sexy numbers that audiences will love.
As Vancouver’s longest running burlesque festival, guests will be treated to a variety of performances that include some of the best in the business.
On April 4 the event welcomes guests to enjoy ‘TED-style’ talks with a cocktail presented by esteemed performers, academics, and producers sharing their unique perspectives, ideas, and stories pertaining to the burlesque realm.
On April 5 burlesque artists from across North America will come together and celebrate the dynamic spectrum of sexuality and gender expression through comedy, drag, and sensual striptease. Called “The Showpony Soiree,” the event takes place at the Vancouver Playhouse and dares you to, “Come dressed in what makes you feel your fanciest and fiercest.”
On April 6 guests may enjoy “The Glamorama Gala” – an evening of star-studded headliners from across the globe that will tease you with fierce, compelling, and creative acts.
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY, SAINT JOHN!!! We’re so excited to celebrate with YOU at the @ImperialTheatre March 8 & 9!!! ❤️ 💖 ❤️
