We Been Here: Black Burlesque Legacy


The We Been Here showcase pays tribute to Black burlesque legends by presenting their histories through TedX-style presentations, and features acts from New York's vibrant Black burlesque scene.

Hot-cha girls. Strip tease darlings. Exotic dancers. Shake dancers. Hoochie coochie girls. Black women have always been a part of the building and rebuilding of burlesque in America, but are often left out of the history books. Our unique way of storytelling through movement, costuming, props, and performance is an integral part of the legacy of classic burlesque in the 40s and 50s and the revival of the art form through neo-burlesque in the 90s.

We Been Here stars Queerly Femmetastic, Nita B. Yellowcakes, & Miss AuroraBoobRealis, is hosted by Gigi Holliday, with stage management from Susie Dhal, support from Dominant Jeane, and mentorship by a living legend, Perle Noire.
