Femme Flux Presents: Evoke Fashion Show

Creating inclusive spaces for self-expression & celebration within Alberta's diverse artistic communities.



KY Squared is formally known as K-Stylez and Wadjit. This catalytic duo has been causing scenes for far too long, much farther than anyone cares. Uniting their powers officially and infiltrate those dancefloors with booty shaking beats, crisp mixing and visual treats. Inked to the nines, so slick and so smooth, greasing those nights for a good time.


Saturday Night! 9:00 PM at the Main stage.

Enter to win a HUGE PRIZE PACKAGE from the incredible vendors of this year's Taboo Show!

How to win? Sign up using this submission form: https://forms.gle/yMQntdzvGUJ38h3c7

Show up ready to perform your sultriest, silliest, steamiest, most seductive striptease to a crowd of roaring fans!

Upon arrival, you will be given a great song to groove to one hour (8:00 PM) before the show but no later than 8:45 PM. We do not take requests! Songs will be upbeat, popular songs that are at least familiar to most folx.

Ask for Bitch Sassidy or Jewels at the Main Stage.

You may strip as much or as little as you like - consent is sexy - bottoms (underwear) must be kept on. Exposing your genitals will have you disqualified and removed from the convention.

You provide your OWN costume and props. Amateurs and the sexy-curious only!

This competition will have limited spots! However, should anyone drop out or not show up to the stage by 8:45 PM, we will re-open their spot to another interested person.

Presented by Cabaret Calgary Productions

BDSM 101: Are you curious about BDSM/Kink? Join Veronica (she/her) for this informative seminar on what BDSM is all about, how to find your local community, and tips for ''newbies'' to ensure you have the tools you need to explore with empowerment.  Veronica is passionate about shame free sex education that focuses on consent and empowerment.  She was one of the original founders of ASPECC, (Alberta Sex Positive Education and Community Centre). 


Rope Bondage Interactive!  Join ASPECC for this interactive rope class.  There is rope for you to practice along for one of the basic ties.  The instructor will walk you through some important safety information about rope bondage before walking you through a basic limb capture.  Then the instructor will demonstrate one of their favorite ties, with some tips on making rope a sexy, playful experience. 


Ethical Non-Monogamy Intro and Discussion: Join the panelists for a brief introduction to the diverse world of Ethical Non-Monogamy.  Each panelist has or is still practicing some form of relationship style that is not based on monogamy; from swinging to polyamory.  They will answer any respectful questions and provide some information on how they started, the information they wished they had understood at the beginning, and one learning experience they have had so far.  


Come in, sit down, and lean closer to see what can only be shared in the most intimate setting. The Peep Show is back, filthier than ever. Inspired by 70s smut and live peepshows, we have a stunning lineup of babes doing undeniably sexy shows behind the curtain. Find us to experience a show made for your eyes only...
