Neo Burlesque Takes Over Down-underPosted by Alec on November 21 2013.
A small burlesque show has everyone talking down under at the Sydney Fringe Festival. Audiences were treated to a fabulous neo burlesque experienceOn the opening night of ‘Gallery Burlesque’, the performers had the audience stunned with their alternative style of burlesque – one audience member described the performances:
“Bit by bit, she peels away her colourful costume to reveal rainbow socks, scanty underpants and some novelty boggle eyes covering her nipples. As she whips away a final piece of material, a kids’ party blower extends from her crotch.”
“Another act sees a ballerina glide gracefully across the stage en pointe before ripping off her skirt piece by piece, until she is left prancing in little more than a g-string. In a final gesture, the audience gasps as she pretends to defecate on the stage and smear herself with the results.” – Ninemsn
Despite the (at times) controversial and bizarre nature of this act, it has been well received by critics. Although this specific form of burlesque has only been around for a few years, in general burlesque has always pushed the boundaries of what is perceived as proper behaviour, and what should and shouldn’t be done in public.
