Brown Girls Burlesque is a company of women of color dedicated to creating their own reflection in the art form of burlesque using whimsy and the theatrical depth. BGB stands out in the crowded space of the neo-burlesque movement by circumventing the classical and new school interpretations of burlesque by blending cultural traditions, experiences, and a distinctive artistic aesthetic.
