Friday, March 14 - Thursday, March 20, 2014

Live Performances nightly through March 20, see schedule below.

The World Famous *BOB*, Dirty Martini, Tigger!, Mat Fraser, Julie Atlas Muz, Bunny Love, Bambi the Mermaid, James Habacker and Rose Wood use satire and their own bodies to send up conventional notions of body image, gender, and sexuality in their modern burlesque performances. New York underground filmmaking legend Beth B enters their subversive world, both on stage and behind-the-scenes, in this entertainingly provocative portrait of NYC artists gleefully breaking taboos as they entertain.

“One of the most revealing portraits yet of the marginal performance medium, the film is likely to blow the cobwebs off any preconceptions viewers might have about gender, sexuality, empowerment and the body… Like its subjects, Beth B’s documentary is uninhibited, playfully unsettling, and uniquely enlightening.” – Time Magazine/Lightbox
