6th Annual Burlesque Extravaganza From Local Troupe Les Filles Rouges
IF TICKETS SELL OUT ONLINE YOU CAN STILL TRY AND GET THEM AT THE DOOR!
Polaris Dance Troupe and Gloriana present an encore evening of burlesque at Eagles Hall on Friday, March 31st, at 8pm.
Founded in Mendocino in 2011, Les Filles Rouges represents a unique blend of dance, comedy, and empowerment- much more than a series of strip teases. Their new show is a send-up of the Fairytale genre and the Disneyfication of classic stories. The cast is full of well-known characters such as Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella but without the theme of "damsels in distress".
Polaris Dance Troupe's founder, Melinda Miller-Klopfer, gained inspiration for Les Filles Rouges from her time spent living in Berlin and her frequent travels to Paris, both cities where the burlesque tradition has a long and politically charged history. Miller-Klopfer coined the term "Progressive Burlesque" to describe her Mendocino troupe's style, having experienced the profound effect of burlesque on her own life and the lives of many of the troupe's dancers. Using sensuality and comedy as tools of empowerment for both the performers and the audience progressive burlesque aims to enrich as well as titillate. Her burlesque philosophy was most recently featured on Yahoo! news: http://bit.do/burlesque.
As ever, Les Filles Rouges believes in supporting women on and off stage, and in that spirit, a portion of the show's proceeds will benefit Planned Parenthood.
Tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets and are $25 in advance and $30 at the door.
The theatre bar will be open, and the show is limited to those over 21.
