ABOUT BROWN GIRLS BURLESQUE
On October 12, 2007 over 250 packed into the Pussy Cat Lounge to witness the birth of the BGB experience to the sounds of Jimi Hendrix. With allurement, humor, and artistry this troupe of women representing Africa, Asia and the Americas is bringing to the stage theerotic and playful voice of Women of Color.
When something is this hot, fresh and authentic, people take notice. The BGB Lovelies have graced the pages of Bust Magazine, The Advocate, The Village Voice, and $pread Magazine. Features include a six-page editorial in TRACE’s Black Girls Rule issue and a video feature on NYPost.com entitled Burlesque in Color. With New York City in a glittered swoon Brown Girls Burlesque is poised to take it around the world.
ABOUT THE BGB PERFORMERS
Chicava HoneyChild, offers a sublime seduction through her tales. In Evil Beautiful Sunshine she lures you from the innocent into the dark side of hot then brings you back into the sun. Whatever Lola Wants merges the eloquence of Sara Vaughn with slick sexy Ibiza sounds and hot pink feathered fans. As
Black Betty you’ll wish she was your girlfriend, a naughty little black riding hood who rocks your asphalt.
ExHOTic Other Her work will have you laughing, crying and in awe. Puff the Magic Dragon is a sensual protest of stereotyped Asian femininity. Somewhere at the intersection of horror films and the NYC Halloween parade, Hipsters (are) Zombies examines the gentrification of NYC and its effects on the people and communities. Maneater, with Miss SOuthern COmfort, weaves a tale of an imperial hunter’s search for a wild thing, and in a hot battle it’s the wild thing that emerges victorious.
