"I believe poetry AND burlesque are dangerous professions between conflict and resolution, between feeling and thought, between becoming and being, between the ultra-personal and the universal- and these balances are shifting all the time."

- Lacy Knickers inspired by the words of May Sarton (American poet, novelist, and memoirist, 1912-1995)


I am a Renaissance woman-- an artist of many disciplines including a producer, poet, playwright, novelist, burlesque performer, literary arts champion, and historian.  I work to promote female empowerment, body and sex positivity, inclusivity, and tolerance through burlesque and the literary arts. 

In January 2016, I started Lacy Productions to create theatrical and performance art entertainment. These productions create a transformative experience for my audiences, where sexuality, imagination, intelligence, and empowerment thrive as well as mix with other artistic genres, including but not limited to the literary arts.

My first production, a single Booklover’s Burlesque show in Portland, Oregon, promoted a newly published anthology that showcased empowering female stories about first time sex read aloud and matched with burlesque performances. Following the enormous success of this production, I grew this concept into the following:

• A Booklover’s Burlesque production three to four times a year.
• The writing of story-driven theatrical burlesque productions.
• Co-producing with others who uphold a similar mission.
• Supporting local writers as “writers-in-residence” for each Booklover’s Burlesque production.
• Working with other literary and “book-centric” groups in town.
• Successfully merging the burlesque and literary arts to create transformative, meaningful, and entertaining productions.

Your patronage and support will allow Lacy Productions to continue creating, curating, researching, and writing powerful shows that promote body and sex positivity as well as give a voice, through the power of the written word and the power of burlesque, to all gender and sexual identities, people of color, different cultures, varying physical abilities, and anyone who has ever felt underrepresented, undervalued, ignored, silenced, or misunderstood in society. 

Your patronage will assist with such things as:
• renting rehearsal space,
• researching and acquiring literary pieces to be used for Booklover's Burlesque 
• marketing 
• promotion 
• scriptwriting 
• production costs
• maintaining affordable ticket prices to allow maximum accessibility
• expanding the shows to travel to other cities to reach more audiences!

Supporting the arts is more important now than ever before. It is an act of resistance. It is the search for truth. It is survival against the storm. Let us journey and support the arts together.

It is my hope that Lacy Productions' audiences will be able to "Come curious. Leave transformed," for many years to come. I invite you to join me in this mission.
