This year is The 6th Annual NYC Asian Burlesque Extravaganza at The Highline Ballroom, happening this Saturday, May 12, 2018!
This annual event aims to bring visibility and exposure to performers of color who have traditionally been marginalized and erased in the history of theater, entertainment & burlesque. They focus on POC of Asian heritage to broaden the racial spectrum in modern burlesque.
