BIG BOA

A dilettante ingénue takes the stage, only to have her act derailed by a mysterious gift: a bigger, thicker, longer boa! This seems to be an improvement at first, but the boa has its own ideas about how the act should progress. Using puppetry, physical comedy, fight choreography, and a central metaphor that becomes more and more disturbing the longer you think about it, Big Boa won "Most Innovative" at the Edmonton Burlesque Festival's Bunny Competition, and was selected to compete for Best Debut at the 2017 Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender.
