Classic, With A Twist of Modern: White Elephant Burlesque At Rockbar

Celebrating its 10th year, White Elephant Burlesque Society is a theatrical fully realized inner circle of talented and ambitious burlesque performers. Each of them a headliner, WEBS members perform for audiences with an array of skill and talents.

White Elephant at Rockbar

Tongues firmly in cheeks, bosoms strapped tightly in corsets, and toes a-tapping, the performers aim to bring the symbolism of freedom, joy, romance, sexuality and theatrics that once captivated the audiences of the original vaudeville and burlesque ages to the contemporary stage.

A cornerstone of the White Elephant is their innovative concept show, with past productions referencing Alice in Wonderland, a haunted hotel, Grimm’s Fairytales, the Seven Deadly Sins, video games, a mad toy inventor and even William Shakespeare.

White Elephant Burlesque, est. 2006, was created by Viktor Devonne and Femme Fae la Butche and is presently performing weekly at Rockbar NYC on Christopher St under the direction of Viktor Devonne — and at conventions, events, and special occasions across the east coast.
