Bristol's Badass Burlesque Show
When we created the Bristol Burlesque Festival 2014, we asked each applicant one important question: “What is Burlesque to you?” The answers made us laugh and cry and marvel at the beautiful variety our chosen art form presents. We’ll be sharing some of these responses with you in the CoochieCrunch Advent Calendar 2014. Check back every day this month up to the 25th for a new piece of Burlesque Inspiration!
Burlesque to me is about expressing and exaggerating the aspects of your personality, opinions, thoughts and self, in a way that may not be possible in everyday life, due to various restrictions. It is about expressing them in a way others find entertaining, thought provoking, beautiful or downright dirty! It’s about utilising existing skills, learning new ones, embracing all your quirks and always striving to put on a better show than the last, each time you get up on stage.
