Vermont’s Black Burlesque Revue

Sept 3-5

Burlesque is a symphony of theatre, comedy, and striptease, and has been celebrated in true Vaudeville fashion since the late 19th century. Black performers, referred to as “sepia” dancers were touring, shaking, and setting the standard, but their stories are often erased or hidden by society. Today’s Black ecdysiasts are changing the narrative, by reclaiming their space on stage and in history — by documenting their legacy. Life in Sepia is a revival of burlesque through the decades, showing the imprint of Black excellence throughout the history of this under-appreciated art form. Featuring a diverse revue of performances by The Maine Attraction, Perle Noire, Poison Ivory, Gigi Holliday, Genie Adagio, Vera Safire, Golden Mystique, Hi Ho Silver, and Domini’que Anjou. The Femmecee of the evening will be Liza Colby and Kia Warren.
