Diversion Burlesk: Oh Hell Yeah!

The cherry blossoms are blooming, the crocuses are poking their cute little faces out of the dirt, and the Diversion Burlesk crew is ready to come out of a seasonal affective disorder fueled hibernation with Oh Hell Yeah! Hosted by Holly Shirt and Atomic Ember! What better way to say goodbye to a wet and cold winter and hello to a wet and marginally warmer spring than a burlesque show? These performers have chosen numbers that make them feel powerful, radical, and fierce as all hell, and they’re ready to put on a show that’s bound to leave you saying “HELL YEAH!”

A monthly burlesque revue held at the Victoria Events Centre, Wet Coast Burlesque showcases local performers and artists while creating a supportive and welcoming environment for creative, progressive, and fun-loving adults. We thrive on artistry, empowerment, self-love, and taking every opportunity we can to celebrate life! We are advocates of the stage and all its people: the movers and shakers, trail blazers and heavy hitters, shimmiers and promenaders. We promise to host shows that will leave you inspired, energized, sparkly-eyed, and at least a little glittery.
