Wepa! Burlesque celebrates Latin, Afro-Cuban and Caribbean
culture through art, music and burlesque.
Hosted by Isa Ardiente, this burlesque showcase provides a platform for
Latinx Philly performers to do what they do best. Some acts will be
Latin-inspired, all will be Latinx-created and performed. Art vendor Gabrielle Chapman will be offering
art for sale and will be available for live painting.
On February 22nd, local burlesquer Isa Ardiente and
local producer Mario Piña will present the third of a series of bimonthly burlesque
shows featuring different Latin identifying local performers. The February show will feature queer burlesque and drag artists
Foxworth Vorn, Esmerelda May, and Areola Grande alongside Isa Ardiente. This event
is sponsored by the TLA.
