Burlesque – more than Bits and Boobs”

By the Burlesque Collective

In the 1830s Burlesque developed as a lower class response to refined upper-class entertainment – a mishmash of dancing, singing, comedy and notoriously, stripping. It began as a form of theatre that cleverly mocked and satirised popular operas, plays and societal issues.  Burlesque features beautiful, silly, weird, spooky and subversive performances. This artform allows performers to have autonomy over every aspect of their act from music selection, costuming, through to how they move on stage and interact with the audience. 

Members of The Burlesque Collective will share information about burlesque by delving into history and origins and speak about the elements that are used in contemporary performances. The audience will be invited to participate in an interactive lesson about the art of striptease. 

Doors open 6.30pm

Talks start 7pm
