MORE ABOUT BURLESQUE:
Is burlesque just a fancy word for striptease?
Luckily for word enthusiasts, burlesque derives from a rich tradition and meaning… The word derives from the Italian burlesco, which, in turn, is derived from the word burla: “a joke or parody”.
Aka – Burlesque is a performance intended for laughter and celebration!
Burlesque was started as a feminist movement, a ‘punch-up’ parody back in the 1800’s for women’s rights against social expectations – but you know, in a super fun and glamourous way!!
We added an element of the ‘art of tease’ in the 1930s, then the neo rise (and rise) happened in the 1990s and still continues today.
We’ve seen the art form laden with feminine showgirls, but burlesque welcomes every gender identity and is every ‘body’ celebrated – if there’s ever a place you should feel fabulous for exactly who you are, it’s at a burlesque show!
