Leather & Lace - Feb 22nd

John Barleycorn's

It's half-lighthearted sexy fun, half-darker, harder, seductive duality in this show sure to delight with an entourage of wonderful guests. We unveil our newest additions like our new magician that will leave you mesmerized, Big Poppa E, a hilarious three-time veteran of HBO's Deaf Poetry, and more to be announced. We will also bring back local hula hoop goddess Gaia, our Brothers Grime sideshow troupe with Shon Gunderson, some debut performances by our new ladies, and I've heard whispers of belly dancers and even a raunchy up-and-coming comedian.

 

About This Group

Wichita Burlesque is a theatrical dance troupe that strives to bring a highly artistic, sexually  charged and empowering art form back to Wichita. With building self-confidence, welcoming diversity and having fun as our main group goals, we intend to give back to the community with fundraising and donations prominently going toward the women’s shelters in the Wichita area.

What is Burlesque?

Burlesque was an Italian art form before being adopted by the French, who molded burlesque into what you may know of it, today. Derived from the Latin word burra, or "trifle", the original acts were musical and theatrical parody & very much about social commentary.

It wasn't until the 20th century American performances that striptease became associated with the word "burlesque", & adult entertainment became the driving force of these shows, though certainly 1890's Paris and the Moulin Rouge were where burlesque stripping was born.

Today as it was in the early 20th century vaudeville performances, burlesque is as much about the wit and humor of the tease, as it is about the tease itself. In recent years, large cities across the nation have seen a resurgence in interest for this very snarky, very sexy art form. This is "stripping even your wife would enjoy".
