By curating a burlesque directory of intriguing Burlesque Shows, Burlesque Troupes, Burlesque Supper Clubs, Burlesque Events, Burlesque Productions, and Burlesque Performers, the diversity of the industry can begin to be understood. This isn’t to be a comprehensive list of the Burlesque Industry, as there are numerous websites and even niche burlesque directories that already exist.
Also note, this directory includes burlesque, pole dance, drag, sideshow, theatre, circus, BDSM & Kink, and many other forms of nightlife events and productions specifically curated by Switchress Shay AuLait.
Black Burlesque Directory
The Black Burlesque Directory was created in 2015. Rooted in the desire to fill more productions with Black performers, this directory serves as a tool for performers, curators and producers. The Black Burlesque Directory acknowledges the complexity of identity, ethnicity and geography. In this context, Black is used as an umbrella term to identify folks who are indigenous African or descendants of indigenous Africans. The Black Burlesque Directory is evidence that Black performers have been and will continue to light up stages across this planet.
