Burlesque dancer, producer and actor Fairlith Harvery is our special guest for Ask Me Anything Improv at Cafe Deux Soleils on May 15! She will share tales from her work with the Geekenders, and answer your questions!
Who is Fairlith Harvey?
Fairlith Harvey is the artistic director of Geekenders fandom theatre and nerdlesque troupe. On her ‘free’ nights, she runs Vancouver, BC’s Rocky Horror shadow cast, and performs at and hosts events all over the Pacific Northwest. “Vancouver’s acknowledged nerdlesque queen.” (Link Magazine).
Who are the Geekenders?
Geekenders, called a “cult sensation” by Daily Hive, is British Columbia’s pre-eminent geeky theatrical and event troupe. Producing ‘nerdlesque’ shows, plays, variety shows, fandom-based parties, and mini conventions, Geekenders is, first and foremost, about community. They strive to make sure everyone who attends a Geekenders event or participates in the online community feels heard, accepted, comfortable, and safe. Geekenders’ emphasis is always going to be about providing a quirky, interesting evening full of art, socializing and dancing for those who might not otherwise spend their Friday at a party.
So come join the fun!
