Nerdlesque: Two Shows
Nerdlesque Early Show: A Nude Hope
Friday, March 16 | 6 p.m. | Victoria Conference Centre | 19+
"Been looking for love in Alderaan places?"
We invite you to join us a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away with acclaimed fandom theatre troupe Geekenders, who are concentrating their usual pop culture theatre, comedy and burlesque into a glittering, playfully sensual two-act reboot of a sci-fi classic. Featuring a cast of seventeen of Geekenders all-star nerdlesque performers, the event and theatre troupe is pulling out all the stops to ensure a memorable, sexy, nerd-herding night for geeks of all types. Geekenders brings back the first instalment of their epic burlesque adventure trilogy, as seen on Chris Hardwick's @midnight, with a Vegas-style spectacular that combines striptease, comedy, dance, showgirls, vaudeville, nostalgia, and space.
"From a not so scary Darth Vader, to a yummy Lando Calrissian, a swaggering braggadocio Han and independent Leia, athletic Yoda, a Justin Bieber Luke Skywalker to the awesomely cute pair of a rollerblading R2D2 and C3PO, and oh those Stormtroopers troops, this is a Star Wars cos-player's fantasy dream." - Living Myth Magazine.
Nerdlesque Late Show: Full Frontal Nerdity
