PEEP! presents Sapiosexual: An Ecdysiast Tribute to Geek Fandom!
July 20, 8:30 p.m. Organized by independent performers Pepper Mills and Bunny Elise VanDoren, PEEP! brings together performers from a wide variety of troupes and independent acts around the city, as well as guest performer Red Rum from Chicago, described as "The Lon Chaney of burlesque."
VanDoren says PEEP is an extension the Burlesque Craft Night she and Pepper Mills run. "People who would not normally work together get to laugh and connect backstage," she says. "It's also is a wonderful avenue for new performers to get stage time and develop which is so important in those first couple of years. Burlesque, specifically neo-burlesque. works so perfectly with nerd themes. You can tell a story, create an alternate universe for a popular character, or mash up two totally different realms."
