League of Exotique Dancers - One Night Only!
One Night Only! September 1st at The Roxy Theatre in Saskatoon - League of Exotique Dancers!

With a blast of brassy jazz and a spin through the glitz of modern Las Vegas, Emmy Award-winning Storyline Entertainment and award-winning director Rama Rau's documentary sets the tstage for a provacative and eye-opening "backstage tour" of the golden age of Burlesque through the colorful lives of unforgettable women who made it glitter. Our guides are none other than inductees of the Burlesque Hall of Fame, all titans of tease and each possessing a way with words as uninhibited and captivating as her
routines.

Tantalizing tales and expert tips from the frontlines propel an action-packed journey through Burlesque's heyday that also covers its gradual demise, concluding with an upbeat celebration of its rediscover and revitalization by a new generation. What emerges is full-figured portrait of Burlesque-era striptease artists, one that goes deeper into the culture and is more nuanced than many familiar screen depictions. It also reflects the rapid changes in mid-20th-century North American society - a side of Burlesque culture rarely explored on screen.

Illuminated by well-known and rare, never-before-seen, archival material and accentuated by a soundtrack and original music that captures the mood of the era, League of Exotique Dancers peels off the layers of glitter to expose the sexism, racism, and widespread stigma faced by Burlesque striptease performers and, indeed, the wider array of working women in that tumultuous era.

Doors open at 7, live burlesque performances till the movie starts at 7:30 sharp!
