Peekaboo Pointe (USA): Burlesque Act Development 2-day Intensive

burlesque act - from an idea to the performance

Peekaboo Pointe

The workshop will take place as part of the Small Arts Platform, which will happen between 2 and 5 November 2023 at Mladinsko theatre in Ljubljana.


In this two day workshop you will create a burlesque act from seed of an idea to a performance! Peekaboo will teach you how to take your ideas into fruition and find your voice within your performance. Over the course of the two days you will learn some history of burlesque, have a movement class each day and work in groups and alone to craft a solo act. We will also learn how to give constructive positive feedback to your peers to help eachother grow their craft. The end of the workshop is a full show in the studio for each other!


Peekaboo Pointe is an interdisciplinary performance artist, video artist, stripper, burlesque performer and choreographer. Peekaboo has created a body of work that can co-exist in both traditional performance spaces and the world of nightlife entertainment. In addition to being a proud stripper and headlining in burlesque in nightclubs and festivals around the world, she creates interdisciplinary multimedia dance theater that has been shown in various theaters and festivals. Her work explores intimacy by subverting the expectations of the viewer and using her body as a tool to explore larger topics of gender, sexuality, sex work, and feminism with playful humor sprinkled in.
