The Blackheart Burlesque ‘Suicide Girls’ take the stage at the NorVa.

Pop culture, comedy, catchy songs and stripteases come together in a show like no other. This November at the NorVa, some of the most beautiful bombshells to walk this earth will be center stage for a night that promises unforgettable erotica in the most refined sense. One thing is for sure, this is a far cry from the next Victoria’s Secret Fashion show.
After a six year hiatus, the SuicideGirls Blackheart Burlesque Tour is back and will be arriving at The NorVa on Nov. 14. The performance features seven of the spiciest, most sensuous, incredibly talented “SuicideGirls” with choreography by Manwe Sauls-Addison, well-known for his work with renowned artists like Lady Gaga and Beyoncé. This show will push the boundaries of burlesque to a new level. Blackheart Burlesque is by far the apex of all live performances in tribute to pop culture. These shows are packed with incredible music, dance numbers and performances parodying cinematic phenomena such as “Kill Bill,” “The Big Lebowski,” and shows such as “Game of Thrones” and “Doctor Who,” to name a few. Of course, the content of their shows is far from the only thing that makes SuicideGirls unique.
SuicideGirls is an online community founded in 2001 by “Missy Suicide” that strives to celebrate beauty by providing an “alternative to the mainstream media’s obsession with the silicone enhanced Barbie dolls,” said Missy Suicide. Each SuicideGirl is unique—some sport vibrant multi-colored hair, others elaborate tattoo pieces or unusual piercings, all are strikingly beautiful in their own way.
Aside from their looks, each SuicideGirl also has her own enticing personality. SuicideGirls are intelligent, confident women with a myriad of interests, hobbies and talents.
SuicideGirls come from all areas of the globe, each a rare gem and proud to be outside of the mainstream, and they have landed in Norfolk for one night.
For those curious individuals, or just those looking to embrace their wild side, the Blackheart Burlesque hits the NorVa’s stage tonight. Doors open at 7 p.m. and general admission is $20. Approach with caution, boys and girls. This show is age restricted, 18 and up only.
