Riot Grrrls -Sleepover Guest & Beneficiary
The Riot Grrrls Burlesque Revue is a collection of feminists of various genders and sexualities, who promote social activism through performance art. The name “Riot Grrrls Burlesque Revue” is an ode to the underground feminist punk movement that started on the West coast in the 90s.
We focus on using burlesque as a tool for empowerment, and to highlight political issues through satire and theatrics. Burlesque started as a platform for social change through mockery of oppressive systems, and we draw on these original roots in our work. We believe in equality. We aim to make our shows as trans-inclusive as possible. We stand against the systemic oppression of our own bodies. We celebrate the diversity of the human body. We celebrate body-positivity and sex-positivity.
e are a group of performers who dare to explore topics of misogyny, sexuality and gender-f*ckery on stage. We open our hearts to explore our own sexuality through movement and play and believe in the power of connection beyond just physical attraction. We invite people of all genders and sexualities and from all walks of life to join us at one of our quarterly shows that feature our passion for performance, our love of laughter, fun & play, our diversity, and our subversive attitude.
