Art of Burlesque
Art of Burlesque, Czech Republic, 90 min, DV, Archive, Arts and Culture, Society
The Art of Burlesque is a tribute made to more than a hundred years of female beauty, fashion and performance art. This film introduces this art form and its history from the beginnings of vaudeville in the nineteenth century, through to the highlights of burlesque in the early twentieth century to the American fifties. In the 21st century, burlesque has made an incredible comeback. We will meet glamorous performers and dancers, including Dita Von Teese, Immodesty Blaize and many others, to help illustrate the meaning of this movement in various kinds of creative areas, such as fashion, music, film and theatre. Our documentary will stay focused on the subject and will only cover the most important periods and personalities. The film will be composed of archive materials, contemporary interviews and short film series. We want to give the best possible overview this subject can offer, but with a view to quality and respect.
