Celebration of Whimsy (AKA The C.O.W.)
On March 7th RAWR Burlesque turned one year old and we were there to party with these fantastic ladies.
The show is produced by cosplay queen Stella Chuu and multi-award-winning performance artist Dangrrr Doll, and I’ll tell you what, I don’t know my Pokémon from my Pac-Man (ok that’s not true, to date myself, I totally grew up on Pac-Man) but I absolutely LOVE both these ladies and everything they are doing. They seemed to appear out of nowhere, each doing her own thing, kittening, gogo-ing, performing—catching my eye every single time. And now they’re producing—in a city filled with a large selection of burlesque shows happening any given night—what have turned out to be fantastic events. If you haven’t been to a RAWR show yet, you are truly missing out on a wonderful treat.
Happy first birthday RAWR Burlesque! I can’t wait to see what you do next.
