black burlesque directory

The Black Burlesque Directory was created in 2015. Rooted in the desire to fill more productions with Black performers, this directory serves as a tool for performers, curators and producers.

The Black Burlesque Directory acknowledges the complexity of identity, ethnicity and geography. In this context, Black is used as an umbrella term to identify folks who are indigenous African or descendants of indigenous Africans. The Black Burlesque Directory is evidence that Black performers have been and will continue to light up stages across this planet.
