The Edgy Women Festival will celebrate it’s 20th year of feminist art practices in an arena that isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think about feminist art. This year the Edgy Women Festival invites you to celebrate feminist art in a boxing ring, on the ice and at the gym.

Sunday all bets are off as local lady fighters take to the ring to wrestle it out. Belgian experimental theater artist Marijs Boulogne organized this feminist Lucha Libre event and was smart enough to know that nothing compliments sweaty women wrestling like a neo-burlesque half-time show! Tickets are $15-$20 and are available online and at the door.
