About the Company: HyperGender Burlesque
HyperGender began with a hope and a dream....and on Saturday April 14th 2007...that dream became a reality. As burlesque is getting more and more mainstreamed and as "post" is new "neo" we are proud to be the first post-neo-burlesque show. Two years after its conception HyperGender Burlesque is one of the leading monthly reviews and has gained a reputation for providing experimental and thought provoking entertainment.
HyperGender's mission is to titillate you, taunt you and tease you with a different variety of political and performance art. This is not your average burlesque show as it features video, drag, and performance art.
We are a monthly THEME review that features new and established burlesque performers, videographers, poets, sideshow artists and the pulse of NYC's underground artist community. Our themes range from Shakespeare, masturbation and the ever famed Seven Deadly Sins.
HyperGender is housed at historic WOW Cafe Theatre in the heart of NYC's East Village. The show is rated NC-17 for full frontal nudity and other things that bump in the night. We are daring for a reason, provocative because we have to....we want to show the NYC is still raw, edgy and beautiful all at the same time. This is a direct answer to Disneyfication of New York City.
A big reason for performers to come to us is our willingness and ability to offer complete creative freedom in a safe environment. This allows a free platform for exchange of ideas with no limits and boundaries. HyperGender encourages acts that are controversial, smart, and most importantly, ART! We strive to create this each and every month.
