Resist! Revolt! Rebel!

Charlottetown Burlesque at The Guild—Sept 22 & 23

As part of its Sexual Assault Awareness Week programming, the PEI Rape and Sexual Assault Centre, in collaboration with Charlottetown Burlesque, is producing a weekend performance in honour of Take Back the Night, a global movement to end all forms of sexual violence. Resist! Revolt! Rebel! with Charlottetown Burlesque will be on stage at The Guild September 22 at 8:30 pm and September 23 at 7 pm.

Charlottetown Burlesque will Take Back the Night with performances that will “embody therapeutic revolution, erotic rebellion, and a gosh darn bawdy revolt,” say organizers. “Join us as we lean deeply into sexual freedom and physical reclamation on September 22 and the 23.”

The troupe is reimagining lyrics from influential feminist bangers from over the decades, such as “You Don’t Own Me,” “Feel A Sin Comin’ On,” and “Je cherche une homme,” among others. 

The Saturday show will include a one-hour Feminist Happy Hour from 7–8 pm, with music from folk-punk harpist Beatty, drink specials, canapes, and special guest performances from Alicia Toner and Kinley Dowling.,
