Boulder Burlesque “The Pussy Grabs Back Burlesque Show”

Boulder Burlesque “The Pussy Grabs Back Burlesque Show”

Be sure that your seats are in the full up right positions, tray tables secured and all electronics placed in airplane mode, as this portion of the sexual revolution will not be televised. However, for a modest donation to the cause, you too can be allowed a glimpse behind the velvet curtain as you stare down the gaping maw that is the collective pussy of Boulder Burlesque.  Their cause is simple and just: female empowerment. The rejection of societal constraints and preconceived notions of femininity and what it means to be woman.  There is no room for shame or bashfulness as Madame Merci and her troupe of vaginal warriors boldly buck traditional burlesque in favor of a more avant garde performance style.

In a society that benefits from the collective masses remaining in their designated lanes, the ladies of Boulder Burlesque will not abide by the rules forced upon them without their consent when it comes to views of body image, sexual expression and gender identity.  A sexual Statue of Liberty, they boldly dance to reclaim what should have never been taken from them: their right to bodily expression.  All are welcome to join the revolution and break the confines of accepted normalcy as Madame Merci and her empowered cohorts will not rest until their New World Order has been built. “Built from the ass up!” as they proudly proclaimed to the crowd at the Wesley Theater in Boulder, Colorado.

A perennial act at the Boulder Fringe Festival, “Pussy Grabs Back” is the Troupes’ latest offering, assailing the more conservative voices that have unquestionably become louder since the unfortunate events of this November. While each member dances to reclaim their own piece of self identity, their battle cry is unified and manifested with a delicate ferocity, as they bare their bodies and proudly own their true selves.  With each performance offering a slightly differing roster of dancers, no one evening is quite like the other and is sure to keep you guessing what’s in store next.  Come visit the ladies Thursday, August 24, 25, or 26 or when they take their show on the road this fall.  Pussy absolutely does grab back, and you may not want it to let go.
