The New Zealand Burlesque Festival is proud to present this red carpet event for the opening night of the festival and the NZ premiere of the film, League of Exotique Dancers, featuring our special guest, a Burlesque legend from the 1970's, Judith Stein.

With a blast of brassy jazz and a spin through the glitz of modern Las Vegas, League of Exotique Dancers sets the stage for a provocative and eye-opening "backstage tour" of the golden age of Burlesque through the colourful lives of unforgettable women who made it glitter.

Our guides are none other than inductees of the Burlesque Hall of Fame, all titans of tease and each possessing a way with words as inhibited and captivating as her routines.

League of Exotique Dancers peels off the layers of glitter to expose the sexism, racism and widespread stigma faced by Burlesque striptease performers and, indeed, the wider array of working women in that tumultuous era.

Dress to be a part of the Glitterati, get photographed on the red carpet and enjoy a complimentary beverage. Premium ticket holders will be able to stick around after the premiere to discuss over nibbles the film with one of the stars and our special guest, Judith Stein.

Doors open 7.30 pm with the film starting at 8.00 pm and the discussion meet and greet held after the film.

Purchase a Festival Pass to save money on all three show nights.
