Members of the Fischer Bodies burlesque troupe formed one of the core groups during the performance inside the Genesee Towers on July 8, 2011 as a part of Lighting the Towers. The Fischer Bodies was founded in December of 2010 by Kristina Lakey. Since its founding, the troupe has been featured in the Flint Journal and on Mlive. They create unique shows at many different venues in the Flint area. With themes such as “Zombie Burlesque” and “Circus Sideshow,” the Fischer Bodies run the gambit of Vaudeville-style theatre, with skits, song and dance, and tongue-in-cheek comedy capped with a strong feminist drive.
