Vancouver’s very own all Indigenous Burlesque troupe returns to TRANSFORM Cabaret Festival with a digital offering sure to spice up your living rooms. Virago Nation will define all the ways in being deadleh through striptease, seduction, and unapologetically showcasing sexuality. When they say deadleh, they mean liberating yourself from the shame that was imposed on your bodies since colonization, they mean allowing yourself to feel fierce in your own skin and peeling away the layers in all sense of the meaning to show the beauty and power that comes from venerability. Founded in May 2016, Virago Nation is on a mission to reclaim Indigenous sexuality from the toxic effects of colonization. Through humour, seduction, pop culture, and politics they show that Indigenous women will not be confined to the colonial virgin-whore dichotomy but will design a new dynamic and multi-faceted sexual identity rooted in their own desires. Wear what makes you feel fierce and enjoy this evening of pure unadulterated entertainment.
