We will screen a 5-minute teaser reel of 'What the Funk?!', followed by a discussion of the BIPOC burlesque community in Seattle. We will then explore the national and international reach of BIPOC Burlesque, and explore how other BIPOC artists can support BIPOC Burlesque. We'll then end with what you've been waiting for, a performance from 'What the Funk?!'
