Brown Girls Burlesque is proud to bring together some the most provocative and outspoken performers in neo-burlesque for BodySpeak in celebration of Coney Island USA and the hotbed of creativity and cutting edge performance work Dick Zigun and his team make a home for.

BodySpeak is an evening of theatrical burlesque that tackles topical, historical, political and societal issues, with a side of glamour. Taking the art of burlesque striptease back to its theatrical roots, social commentary and satire, BodySpeak will tackle white privilege, an exposition of rage via the history of The Black Panther Movement, the civil rights movement now, the Creole Ball and historic matchmaking practices and the fetish of the posterier.

Featuring

High brained and big hearted. Fan Cy Feast, the reigning Ms. Coney Island is an intertextual, sexual artiste extraordinaire! Also, she's a bit of a sexy toys expert. Can't wait to see Saturday Brooklyn Museum spreading love for Coney Island USA!
