The DisabiliTease Festival

The DisabiliTease Festival is a multi-day, multi-show festival that showcases performers with both visible and invisible disabilities. Our second annual festival will take place virtually on July 16-18th, 2021.

The mission of the DisabiliTease Festival is to provide a platform for talented people with disabilities to perform in the areas of burlesque, cirque and drag. The festival strives to create a safe and accommodating space for performers to express themselves and receive the validation and recognition they deserve.

Our goal is to include a wide variety of performers at the intersection of disability with a variety of genders and variations, ages, sizes, abilities, races and ethnicities, locations, beliefs, and sexual orientations, whenever possible. We strive to provide a safe space for artistic expression and performance and training opportunities.


Our goal for the 2021 festival is to have live captioning available during each show. If there are other accommodations that would make your participation in the 2021 festival easier, please reach out to us at info@disabiliteasefestival.com.
