Event Description

Virago Nation is a collective of Indigenous artists creating performance through burlesque, theatre, song and spoken word as well as workshops, and community networks rematriating Indigenous sexuality. Founded in May 2016, Virago Nation is on a mission to reclaim Indigenous sexuality from the toxic effects of colonization. Through humour, seduction, pop culture and politics they will show that Indigenous women will not be confined to the colonial virgin-whore dichotomy but will design a new dynamic and multi-faceted sexual identity rooted in their own desires.

This is our reconciliation.

Introducing Virago Nation, an electrifying Indigenous burlesque troupe that will leave you mesmerized and empowered. Based in the vibrant city of Vancouver, British Columbia, this trailblazing collective showcases the power and resilience of Indigenous culture through the art of burlesque. With a fusion of traditional dance, storytelling, and sensual performances, Virago Nation celebrates and reclaims Indigenous identity in a bold and captivating way.
