The DisabiliTease Festival is a multi-day, multi-show festival that showcases performers with both visible and invisible disabilities. Our second annual festival will take place virtually with a mix of live-streamed and pre-recorded acts.
The mission of the DisabiliTease Festival is to provide a platform for talented people with disabilities to perform in the areas of burlesque, cirque and drag. The festival strives to create a safe and accommodating space for performers to express themselves and receive the validation and recognition they deserve.
Our goal is to include a wide variety of performers at the intersection of disability with a variety of genders and variations, ages, sizes, abilities, races and ethnicities, locations, beliefs, and sexual orientations, whenever possible. We strive to provide a safe space for artistic expression and performance and training opportunities.
