EAST LONDON STRIPPERS COLLECTIVE PRESENTS... JAWS!!!
A HALLOWEEN SPECIAL
ELSC are back with a bang this Autumn! We are super excited to launch our regular monthly nights at our new partner venue, CLUB AQUARIUM, the only club in East London with an indoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi!!!
This Halloween, get down to our JAWS! themed party. We'll be splashing around in the pool, but watch out for those dorsal fins... SHARK ATTACK! Members of the East London Strippers Collective will be performing death defying, high-heel-clacking pole dance routines on the main stage, using visuals from the classic 1975 Steven Spielberg horror movie.
For some added fun, we're going interactive on our audience. Step inside the "Ego Massage Parlour" an audio booth designed to make you feel like a VERY IMPORTANT PERSON indeed. And for a real treat, we'll be the first club in HISTORY to offer VIRTUAL REALITY private dances. You'll be invited to put on a VR Headset and be submerged in 360 VIRTUAL STRIPTEASE!
Halloween costume theme is JAWS... think nautical - Sailors, Old Seadogs, sexy surfer chicks, Deep Sea Creatures, Poseidon, Mermaids, shark attack victims and.... SHARKS! Obvs. Or go a bit leftfield with Olympic divers, Octopussy, Jaws from James Bond, or the Vagina Dentata. As always in the spirit of gender equality, we invite audience members to subvert expectations and challenge stereotypes e.g. Davina Jones, Seawoman Staines or how about a pregnant male seahorse?
Party tunes, disco, dance, house and sleazy techno. BRING YOUR SWIMSUITS!!!
Tickets £5 Online/Door £6

WHO ARE EAST LONDON STRIPPERS COLLECTIVE?
ELSC are a group of feisty, articulate and fiercely independent women, who also happen to be strippers, challenging stigma and smashing stereotypes with their refreshingly honest and open discourse about their culture, working conditions and feminist beliefs. They have come together as a collective, united in their shared grievances about poor working conditions and exploitative business practises within their industry. They also lament the stigma surrounding their jobs; the lack of wider public understanding about what they do, compounded by negative connotations that come from poor mainstream media representation and “feminist” campaigns that seek to erase their industry and destroy their livelihoods.
To counter all this they have begun self-organising their own pop-up events to raise awareness, invite new audiences to explore their world and see what they do from a new perspective. So far their events have included parties, life drawing classes, public talks, costume sales, pole-dance workshops, a film screening, academic symposium and an art exhibition. Members of the collective have taught themselves how to run their own events and create their own working conditions. ELSC wish to generate a culture of respect around stripping by publicly recognising the value and worth of their creative talent and energy.
