09.13.13 // Kick Off GeekGirlCon ’13 with Bechdel Test Burlesque!
In a world where women let their geek flags fly, thirteen burlesque performers will gather to celebrate female fandom through the art of striptease. And they’ll do it all without having conversations about their boyfriends!
Hosted by Rebecca M. Davis and featuring performances by burlesque luminaries Miss Indigo Blue (Miss Exotic World 2011), Lola LeSoleil (Southern Fried Burlesque Queen 2013), The Shanghai Pearl, and Iva Handfull (Kansas City Burlesque Festival Queen 2013), Bechdel Test Burlesque offers top-notch talent with a geeky flair. These superheroes of striptease will be joined by nerdlesque’s rising stars, including Bolt Action, Flirty Sanchez, Maxie Milieu, Sara Dipity, Sailor St. Claire, Scarlett O’Hairdye, Sophie Maltease, Trooper, and Trojan Original, making for an explosion of nakedness and nerdiness!
Produced in association with GeekGirlCon, Bechdel Test Burlesque will be a fun, feminist romp sure to go down in history. GeekGirlCon ‘13 attendees, Seattle burlesque fans, and geeks of all stripes will have two chances to experience this epic event with two showtimes at the inimitable Re-Bar. With all the costumes flashing around onstage, audience members are highly encouraged to cosplay! Come in your best geeky gear and get ready to hoot and holler!
