Virago Nation
Pre-show reception: 6:30PM | Performance: 7:30PM

This National Indigenous People’s Day please join the critically acclaimed Virago Nation as they take over the Evergreen Cultural Centre for one night only! The award-winning, all-Indigenous burlesque collective is set to captivate with its empowering message of body positivity and sexual sovereignty. Witness dazzling performances infused with artistry, culture, humour, politics, sass and of course, glitter!

Founded in May 2016, Virago Nation is on a mission to reclaim Indigenous sexuality from the toxic effects of colonization. Their message is consistent, loud & clear—colonial and patriarchal ideologies have no place here! Using storytelling and striptease, the artists of Virago Nation show that Indigenous sexuality is multi-faceted, dynamic, powerful and an experience that is deeply personal.

Virago Nation has headlined festivals across Turtle Island; including the Vancouver Talking Stick Festival, Queer Arts Festival, Tipi Confessions, Asinabka Film & Media Arts Festival, Gwaandak Theatre Awaken Festival, and both Toronto & Vancouver Pride Festivals. They have been recognized by 21st Century Burlesque as one of the Top 100 Burlesque Industry figures in 2017 & 2018 and voted #3 Best Burlesque Show in the Georgia Straight for 2023.

Please note, this event is 18+.
