GIRLESQUE, Toronto’s annual winter burlesque mega-showcase is back! Now in it's 8th year, the event has grown into a 3-day long exposition presenting some of the world’s best in burlesque.
Queens (Pageant Winners), Legends (key performers from the original heyday), local stars, and the stars of tomorrow have all graced the Girlesque stage in the past, and this year promises to knock the ball out of the park with all that PLUS an appearance from the most notorious living legend of burlesque, pop culture icon TEMPEST STORM.
The Friday Night Opening Party will serve as a meet-and-greet, but not without a show packed full of talent, headlined by Jo ‘Boobs’ Weldon (NYC). Come socialize with the Girlesque girls at the newly renovated and legendary El Mocambo Tavern.
Saturday’s show at the Virgin Mobile Mod Club is a night not to be missed, with an appearance by Legend Tempest Storm, and performances by Legend Tiffany Carter, the girls of Great Canadian Burlesque, and a slew of local and international talent such as Coco Framboise (TO) and Burgundy Brixx (Vancouver).
Sunday’s show at the Virgin Mobile Mod Club will be equally as elegant, with a lineup of Toronto’s top teasers featured alongside key Canadian performers, NYC burlesque icons Nasty Canasta and Peekaboo Pointe, and headlined by the incomparable NOBF 2010 Queen of Burlesque Coco Lectric (TX).
Saturday night's showcase will be one of the most fantastic of the year, and will feature:
