Where does gelatin meet feminism, in a wrestling ring? Jello Underground, an all-female run jello wrestling tournament. It's part performance, part competition, part declaration of female power and sex positivity. Jello Underground began as a Seattle-based burlesque troupe. According to the show’s producer, Gracie Garnet (that’s her stage name), the hustle it took to choreograph, produce, and run a burlesque show became too strenuous. So the troupe, still wanting to perform, took a step back. “We wanted to do something else, but we thought, what’s that going to look like?” Gracie says. One performer by the name of Baberaham Lincoln had the idea to try jello wrestling, something they hadn’t seen in Seattle before. One thing led to another and Jello Underground was born. They have been performing monthly-ish since 2009. Sound Effect producer Bethany Denton gets invited backstage to interview a few of the jello wrestlers, and there she finds women of all shapes, sizes, and body types.
