Boss Ass Bitch Podcast: Season 2

Boss Ass Bitch is back with a second season! I missed this when it happened, as for some reason my podcast feed didn’t get the new episodes, but now I’m playing catchup.

The first episode in season 2, or just plainly episode 13 is with Poison Ivory, and it’s a great listen thanks to Poison Ivory candidly and openly speaking about her experiences as the Reigning Queen of Burlesque and as a performer of color.

I left links, quotes and show notes as a comment to the episode. Enjoy!

Shimmer: a short documentary about Nina La Voix by Georgia Krause

Image Credits: Georgia Krause.

In 2017, Georgia Krause, a NYC based documentarian filmmaker, made a short documentary in the Slipper Room about performer Nina La Voix.

In the piece Nina talks about women’s right to express their sexuality on their own terms, without being labeled as a slut by men who wrongly expect them to be sexually available.

We also learn that Nina used to be an investment banker!

In Georgia’s words, “I believe the piece has a positive message to send about burlesque and the community surrounding it.” We agree, and it’s a beautiful short documentary.

See it for yourself!

April 2018 Show Picks

While there are good Burlesque shows every day of the week in Manhattan, sometimes a show is special, unique, or simply doesn’t happen often. We want to highlight those events to make sure you don’t miss out! If you only go to one show this month, this is our recommendation.

Our pick for April 2018 is The Chicago Party on April 19th at the Slipper Room.

Featuring contortion by Topher Bousquet, burlesque circus puppetry by Juanita Cardenas & Cheeky Lane, dance by Brigitte Madera, Jonathan McDonald, Kyla Ernst-Alper, Sylvana Tapia, and The Unknown Dancers, aerial by RAVEN, burlesque by Emily Shepard, acrobatics by Team Circus Duo, plus surprise guests!

If one show is not enough, the third version of is happening the day before at the same Slipper Room.

And this week, Friday, Wasabassco hosts Wasapalooza, a tribute to 90’s grunge!
