A Shining Attribute
by OUTsider Festival

Feb. 21, 2016

A SHINING ATTRIBUTE is about Bijou's last dance, reliving her life on and off the burlesque stage in the 1940s.

Join Bijou as she recalls her story of love, loss, and redemption - all wrapped up in a sexy burlesque package. The seedling for A Shining Attribute was planted in 1978. Rummaging thru the Boston’s Modern Theater with Rob, who was part of a team attempting to renovate the space into a new arts/jazz venue, we came across an old steamer trunk hidden in the shadows. Inside was a disintegrating boa and a photo of an exotic entertainer. A Shining Attribute may or may not be her story. During this performance, Bijou, the solo character, belongs to us all. A Shining Attribute is dedicated to burlesque queens, past, present and future. And to Rob, who fell off the roof of the Modern Theater taking a piss a few weeks after our trunk discovery. ONE PERFORMANCE ONLY! Badges for OUTsider Fest are available now, and individual tickets will be released 10 minutes before the performance.
