Burlesque Show in Support of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline

We are honoured to be donating our videography services along with the fellow amazing photographer Life by Selena Photography for the Indecent for Indigenous show at The Wiggle Room to help raise funds for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in their fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Come out (fly to Montreal if you have too) and see some amazing performers while simultaneously helping to fund the support for indigenous & environmental rights.

If you couldn't make it to the show, just want to see it again, or have a little more money to donate, we fully recorded the show in its entirety with multiple cameras and it is being made available for a Pay What You Can Donation, all the proceeds of which will also go to support Standing Rock as part of the fundraiser.  To purchase the show now, click the Pay What You Can button below!

THE FULL +1 HOUR LONG VIDEO IS NOW AVAILABLE!

Lou Lou la Duchesse de Rière

She is the Montreal’s answer to real royalty. Of Mohawk descent, this knife-throwing, Martini-downing, sharp-shooting seductress has performed her hot brand of balls-to-the-wall burlesque all over North America, and despite her girlish demeanor, has over 15 years of singing, acting and rump shakin' under her tiny garter belt. It’s time to practice your curtsies and bows, because Miss LouLou is here!

Sugar Vixen

A chance visit to Paris’ legendary Moulin Rouge at the tender age 12, surrounded by boobies and bubbly, thrust Sugar Vixen’s destiny in one sole glittery direction. Entering the realm of burlesque with 7 years of professional hip hop, jazz ballet and salsa dance training under her belt, Sugar’s saucy bump ’n’ grind, fiery energy and punk rock attitude have set stages ablaze far and wide. Sugar Vixen has performed in the Montreal Burlesque Festival, as well as the Dita Von Teese Montreal show in February 2016. A music aficionado, academic, feminist activist, and fierce rock ’n’ roll queen, Sugar Vixen is Miss Sugar and Spice, but NOTHING nice, and the Rock Star of Montreal burlesque.

Elle Diabloe

Montreal's favourite little red devil, Elle Diabloe, has been captivating audiences with a flick of her tail and a twitch of her horns since 2005. A dancer by training and a temptress by nature, this fallen angel of burlesque lives to tease her audience with her forays into the incredibly seductive and the utterly ridiculous!
