Calling in the Dancestors
Join Virago Nation, Turtle Island’s first all-Indigenous burlesque group in an evening of dance, comedy, storytelling, and striptease set to an all-Indigenous soundtrack. See the how music by Redbone, Kinnie Starr, Link Wray, as well as other established and emerging Indigenous musicians, influence the captivating narratives explored by burlesque. Using this as their inspiration, Virago Nation aims not only to reframe Indigenous contributions to western music by earmarking them specifically as Indigenous but also deepen community ties, creating something new by recognizing the accomplishments of our ancestors and cousins.
