Love In Alderaan Places

Sexy Star Wars Burlesque from “nerdlesque” troupe the Geekenders

A long time ago… in a galaxy far, far away… there were The Geekenders! They’re travelling from Vancouver, BC to bring the nerds of Whistler some sexy Star Wars Burlesque. Love In Alderaan Places celebrates the stories and Star Wars characters you know and love (and secretly google sexy fan art of in your spare time) with energetic dancing, comedy, and cheeky satire created by artists as nerdy as you are.

The Geekenders’ popular nerdy cabarets combine the irreverence of the Muppets and the polish and showmanship of a Vegas showgirl revue. Some of Vancouver’s silliest and sassiest burlesque dancers will bring you select performances from their popular Star Wars burlesque shows: A Nude Hope, The Empire Strips Back, and Reveal of the Jedi!  So grab a friend and join us for the geeky, sexy, body-positive, energetic, reference-filled and SUPER HOT night out with the nerd community that you love!
