Ayodele Presents: FeminEssence Burlesque

Hosted by Jon Pierce, FeminEssence Burlesque is about embracing and celebrating black femme sensuality. Performers will explore the different ways of expressing their individuality through movement and spoken word. The night serves a reminder to all women of color to unapologetically live in their skin and not be ashamed of their bodies. With the help of Chicago’s most talented contemporary movement artists, you will experience the penultimate display of movement created by Jazleen Hunter, Deane Green, Shunna Tolliver, A. Raheim White, Alesia Prince-Patterson, and members of Ayodele Drum & Dance.
