The image on our poster and tarot card (9 of Bones, from The Collective Tarot http://thecollectivetarot.blogspot.ca/) is about abundance. It is about the fruits we share and enjoy with one another, that have grown from intentional work rooted in love. This fundraiser is about planting seeds, investing in the growth, sustainability and abundance of Unapologetic Burlesque. It is about celebration: the fruits, roots and spines of Unapologetic Burlesque which exist in the abundance of our energies, stories, and people.
Join us for an incredible evening of stories and performances that will showcase... the fruits we collect, store and share how deep our roots travel underground and hold us planted how far our spins extend outward the way we find anchors in ourselves and each other & of course the way we sparkle and glitter!
As mentioned, this is a fundraiser for Unapologetic Burlesque! All proceeds will go toward the show, and to create accessibility and sustainability funds so we can continue to grow!
