"TUNNELS OF TEASE" BACKSTORY
It’s November 12th, 1927. The Prohibition still wreaks havoc. When the country was forced to stay dry, beneath the city, the party never stopped! Beneath DTLA, rests 11 miles of unused transportation tunnel systems, transformed into the ‘People’s Paradise’. Speak-easies offering an array of the finest bathtub washes and gambling with a rising emphasis on tease and finally the girls taking the spotlight! Performers pulling out all the stops to offer extravagant outfits and characters. Competition is fierce; and if you’re a performer anything goes- especially when there’s no law underground. 14 Burlesque Powerhouses, presented in a rapid pace cycle show, featuring some of the biggest names in Los Angeles and Internationally!

VENUE - EL CID on Sunset
Since its creation in 1962, El Cid has been the premiere venue for Flamenco dancers in Los Angeles, and one of the very best in the entire world. El Cid was founded by dancers sick of not being able to best represent their desired artforms, so they formed their own venue and it now continues as a premiere event space in Silverlake.
