Year of the Cock

Jan 27 2017 21:00 - Jan 28 2017 01:00

Club Aquarium, 256-260 Old St, EC1V 9DD London


Fill your Friday full of Eastern promises as the girls of the ELSC shoot into 2017 with a takeover of Club Aquarium, just in time for Chinese New Year. 2016 monkeyed us all around but 2017 is the Year of the Fiery Rooster - a chance for cocks of all sexes, ages and races to rise up and enter the spotlight. Feeling inspired, our poledancers and Go-Go boys and girls have created a night of live entertainment and shows with a cocktastic theme; expect strap-on dildos, swirling silk lingerie and lights flashier than the Hong Kong skyline. If New Year's Eve was lame and January has been dry as a bone here's a second chance to make it spectacular!

We love inventive attire at all our parties, so ruffle some feathers and dress up sweet and sour - you can be my Chinatown Girl, a Shanghai Night's hooker in her Cheongsam dress or simply come as your favourite cock! Dressing up isn't obligatory, but its always encouraged.

Our performers are ready to rock your cocks off with bespoke stage shows filled with strap-ons and striptease. As if you didn't know already, the ELSC contains some of the best pole dancers in London who are guaranteed to delight your senses. Be dazzled by the aerial manoeuvres of Kitty Velour and friends as they hypnotize you on the pole and this month a surprise hoop show! Tip the gyrating Go-Go boys and girls as they throw some shapes in sequin thongs.For some added fun, we are going interactive in the bar area too. Let the ladies welcome you into the 'Ego Massage Parlour', an audio and sensual experience designed to make you feel like a VERY IMPORTANT PERSON indeed. Or treat yourself to a session in the wildly popular VIRTUAL REALITY Striptease Booth (experience a full 360 immersive video performance by members of the ELSC). Mistress of Ceremonies, Billy Laser, will be on the look out for misogyny, resulting in ritual humiliation for anyone found guilty of harassing the girls or over-stepping the mark.

As usual, ELSC aims to create a safe and respectful space for diversity, absent of stigma and shaming. We invite LGBTQI audience members to come and participate in an activity normally reserved for cis-males... Strippers of the East London Strippers Collective seek to challenge the patriarchal conventions on which their industry is built, and we warmly invite women, couples and trans/queer individuals into our world of wondrous titty-twirling, booty-clapping, pole-dancing and underwear-peeling.

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.
