World Premiere


Theatre / Performance Art
Scaled femme square 300dpi
Join femme-identifying performers of the Fringe as they tell their stories through different mediums; all stripping down society's expectations and taboos, speaking about what stigma silences. Sexual and political, cathartic and heartfelt, provocative and vulnerable, FEMME is about performers sharing intimate details; their stories. Our stories.

FEMME is a fusion of intimate story-telling and performance art curated by veteran burlesque performer Lola Cherry Cola. Each night the performers will explore themes of physical, mental and emotional health, what it truly means to be healthy, and how society shuns us when we are unhealthy.

Stripping more than clothes and revealing more than skin, smashing stigmas and speaking on taboo. We are here. We are FEMME.

Presented by:
Lola Cherry Cola

2019 will mark Lola's 10th year as a burlesque performer. Although now mostly retired, Lola always manages to find herself back in the spotlight during FRINGE WORLD. She has been working and performing at FRINGE WORLD since its inception and has been creating and presenting her own work at the festival since 2014.
This show feels like the next natural step to take after her previous show Lola’s Showgirl Smear Campaign, a show about her real and very personal story of abnormal pap smears, HPV and cervical cancer.
“Lola’s tongue-in-cheek approach and delivery of the performance, woven together with such open willingness to share with us her own personal tale takes any of the unintended sting out of the subject. A one-of-a-kind show.”
