The Vancouver International Burlesque Festival is now accepting production and performer applications for the festival which will be running from May 5-7th. Looks to be a few changes this year- some ok and some awesome!
First the Awesome.
SATURDAY NIGHT’S PRODUCTION WILL BE AT THE VOGUE THEATRE!!!!??? WHHAHTTTY!! *creams pants – That is sooooo epic!!! What a fantastic/amazing/super cool thing!!! For those who don’t know, the Vogue Theatre is fucking fancy. Its one of the oldest and coolest venues in town usually headlined by the best in super stellar acts. I do believe it has some Burlesque in its history but I can guarantee its been YEARS since this theatre has seen any stripteasin! This is a serious step up for Burlesque in Vancouver.
Now for the Ok.
Looks as though there will only be 6 production spots this year. This is of course because one of the nights will be at the Vogue and there will be no Sunday show so I get the why. One of my favorite things that has happened during the evolution of our festival has been the different productions. Its so cool to be able to see 4 different shows in one night!! Especially when they represent our vast and diverse community. Hopefully the six spots will be enough to showcase everybody being as awesome as they are. Looks as though other changes might be in the flat rate payment of the productions being set and maximum number for cast to be involved in each production.
If you are looking to apply as either producer or performer, you can find applications here. The deadline for all applications which involve your videos and photos will be February 18 so get crackin!!!
