Nerdlesque combines performance art and nerd culture.

Burlesque has a long, illustrious history in New Orleans, but this weekend, the performance art is getting a nerdy makeover. NOLA Nerdlesque, a two-day festival, is coming to the Contemporary Arts Center and the Allways Lounge. NolaVie’s Brian Friedman invites burlesque historian and performer Persé Fanny into the studio for an overview of the festival.
