Port Coquitlam burlesque dancer in Showpony Soirée on Saturday

Scarlet Delirium is one of several entertainers lined up to perform at the annual Vancouver International Burlesque Festival.
Scarlet Delirium of Port Coquitlam will appear in the Showpony Soirée on April 6, 2024.

A Port Coquitlam dancer will perform on Saturday, April 6, in a showcase at the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival.

Scarlet Delirium is one of several entertainers lined up for the Showpony Soirée, a program that celebrates “sexuality and gender expression though comedy, drag and sensual striptease,” according to the festival website.

Headlined by Red Tongued Raven and Moscato Sky, the production begins at 8 p.m. at the Vancouver Playhouse (600 Hamilton St.).

Tickets start at $50 and are now on sale.

It’s not the first time Scarlet Delirium has appeared at the annual fest; the costume designer, model and co-founder of Virago Nation — Canada’s first all-Indigenous burlesque act — was also featuring in the 2019 round.

Started in 2006, the festival is the country’s longest-running burlesque gathering; it runs until Sunday, April 7 and includes online viewing options.
