In 2011, Vivian MirAnn launched
ABurlyQ Burlesque & Sideshow Spectacular to restore the vaudeville aspect that historically accompanied the art of the tease, which had been missing from other local performances. Her original, weekend-long show has gained great popularity with an ever-expanding fan base due to its unique style of entertainment, invaluable form of creative expression, and strong link to our theatrical past.
Since 2003, Albuquerque has been a steady home to the resurgent art form of burlesque. A uniquely American theatrical art, burlesque was a common entertainment in the first half of the 20th century. Every year ABurlyQ! combines elements of acrobatics, belly dance, Vaudeville, sideshow, performance art, and burlesque with themed decor to create a unique sensory experience, resulting in full-capacity and sold-out shows.
