Calling ALL amazingly talented, wildly creative, absolutely exciting, super funnnnnn and ready to jump on that stage and perform HUMANS! We are ready to see you strut YOUR stuffs and are looking for a FEW fabulous people to join our CREW!

Va Va Vixens have been creating incredible, jaw dropping burlesque-variety shows since 2009 and we are ready to branch out! We are interested in choreographers, dancers of all genres, singers of all styles, musicians (you heard me), aerial performers ready to experience all types of apparatuses, acrobats, circus weirdos and performance artists of all stripes (no fire, tho)! If you have a weird skill (that isn’t illegal!), we wanna know about it! Like, if you can juggle while riding a unicycle, let’s see it! If you have an amazing voice and can play the ukulele, we must know! If you can jump super high into the splits and make a dramatic landing, yeah, that’s COOL! We wanna see what this town can dooooo!

“The word burlesque conjures all sorts of visuals in one’s imagination. From Paris’s Moulin Rouge, to turn of the century Vaudeville variety shows, to mysterious and dark noir nightclubs with showgirls. The Va Va Vixens takes all of your expectations and flips them entirely upside down! The Vixens troupe features an eclectic cast of performers including women, men, masters of drag, dancers, singers, musicians, comedians, and circus artists. Performed at the Art Sanctuary, guests are treated to a spacious venue brimming with art, grand chandeliers, electric energy, dazzling lights and a stage extravagantly designed for each new show! When the house lights go down, the entire company comes out at full power, grabbing your attention immediately with song and dance that doubles as a promise to the audience, that this show will start at the highest level and will not let up until the very last number! The Va Va Vixens cannot be categorized into any one category!"

An Extravaganza, with Pasties. Frye, who is the Vixens’ guidepost, shepherds her flock of artists, performers and acrobats into putting on the final touches while perfecting the most subtle of nuances, which separate a Vixens show from any other show in the city.”

“There’s the heart stopping drops on those painstakingly hung aerial equipment. There’s the wink and sass of the hip hop, twerk and jazz dance numbers. There are dirty jokes, and, of course, the strip tease, as carefully chosen and constructed costumed are removed one piece at a time, in the signature burlesque numbers. All those undies that were strewn around are now employed for the purpose of catching your attention, and the Vixens want your eyes glued to them.”

Performed at the Art Sanctuary, guests are treated to a spacious venue brimming with art, grand chandeliers, electric energy, dazzling lights and a stage extravagantly designed for each new show!

The Va Va Vixens cannot be categorized into any one category!

The burlesque performances range from sultry and dramatic, to hilarious comedic parody, to hauntingly moving explorations of love and desire. Perfecting the art of the tease, the Vixens have every spectator leaning forward in their seat, hanging on every tug of a glove, daring costume reveal, or spin of a tassel.

They’ll take you from leaning forward to the very edge of your seat with stunning displays of circus arts. Aerialists defy gravity on silks, trapeze, lyra, pole, and even custom apparatuses that will have everyone in the theater holding their breath. Aerialists even perform amongst the crowd, flying just above the audience!

After you’ve been properly wound up, the Va Va Vixens provide comedy relief with musical numbers incorporating dance, witty storytelling, and hilarious antics!

All of these numbers showcase amazing costumes and props, custom made for each show! From the silly, to the sexy, to the stunning; every costume stands out, sparkling and enticing the audience to be drawn in to an evening of variety and highly entertaining cabaret that takes them on a sensory and emotional musical journey, turning them on while making them laugh.

Stage kittens keep the show moving at a steady pace, providing entertainment between each act while preparing the stage for the next attraction. Even the audience feels like a part of the show, symbiotically standing and cheering for everything the Vixens can bring to them, often matching energy for energy.

While frequently playing with adult themes, the acts skillfully avoid over-sexualization of the art, never making anyone uncomfortable. On the contrary, the shows celebrate all bodies, all genders, genuinely inspiring and uplifting the audience in a oftentimes funny, always sexy, and inclusive way.

The Va Va Vixens troupe is celebrating 15 years of entertaining and amazing Louisville, and Art Sanctuary is celebrating its 20th year of providing a safe, welcoming home to innovating artists!”
