About the Artists
Sweet Lorraine is a queer burlesque performer, producer, and community activist. She is the creator and producer of Shades of Burlesque, NYC’s only all Black burlesque revue! She has performed all over the U.S. and internationally in Europe and China. Fulfilling her desire to see more Black and brown bodies on stage in the realm of burlesque, Sweet Lorraine founded Shades of Burlesque in 2012 at the historic WOW Cafe Theatre. Through SHADES, she continues to bring visibility to Black burlesque entertainers, as well as foster nurturing spaces for them to share their stories and dynamic expressions of sexuality.
Bianca Dagga is a fierce queer multi-cultural burlesque performer. Ever since stepping into the spotlight, Bianca has performed all over the U.S and internationally in China. She won sexiest burlesque performer by GO! Magazine‘s lesbian nightlife awards. In 2014 she was crowned Princess of Latin Burlesque at the inaugural Latin Burlesque Festival. Her performances are a testament to her vibrant cultural background. Bianca takes off her clothes for the sake of humanity because at the end of the day when we take off our clothes what is left is our minds, hearts and souls.
