The Lady Josephine - Selling Out

As a pro or semi-pro burlesque artist you have three often-opposing things crying for your attention: your audience, your vision and your bank account. After 10 years as an artist and mentor in the game of burlesque, I'm happy to offer insight into finding your personal balance between these things. Putting your audience first is crucial. So is feeling nourished as an artist. So is paying your rent. Let's talk about making burlesque work for you on all levels.

Androsia Wilde and Roxy Reverie - Diasporic Dynasty - Ushering in a New Era of BIPOC Burlesque Performance

As individuals weary of working in productions and communities that do not see us as priorities, what do we do? Diasporic Dynasty is our response. Not just a troupe but a collective mission, Diasporic Dynasty strives to decolonize stages, to be the actualization of our ancestors, and to welcome our diasporic siblings home. In this talk, we expand on what this mission means to us and the importance of autonomously creating, producing, and making space for BIPOC burlesque.

Mx. Pucks A'Plenty - Down with the Thiccness

My journey as a Fatlesquer and navigating an industry that says "Burlesque is for Everybody" but can feel very exclusionary to Fat bodies.

Faye Havoc - Who Framed Jessica Rabbit?: the Unexpected Intersection of Asexuality and Burlesque

We're here, we're queer, and there are more of us than you realize! Many of today's burlesque performers fall somewhere on the asexual - or "ace" - spectrum; behind the sparkling rhinestones, seductive movements, and shameless nudity, are passionate creatives who don't necessarily experience the carnal attractions or even romantic ideals they seem to embody onstage. What's it like being ace in a context so strongly associated with sexual desirability and presumed availability? What can the often-overlooked presence of asexuals in burlesque teach us about performance, glamour, consent, and our own assumptions of what - and who - is "sexy?" Faye Havoc shares from nearly a decade of experience navigating the world of burlesque as an awkward ace babe... and will even introduce you to the asexual community's theory that Jessica Rabbit - yes, the bombshell cartoon sex icon who launched a thousand tribute acts - could easily be "one of us!"

Q&A Section after each talk will be facilitated by Monday Blues. You will be able to submit questions in the chat during the presentation.

Closed captioning will be available for this event.
