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!
Cyr C. Délicieuse
Burlesque is an amazing way of expression. It’s a short time but very strong where everything is possible and where you can use every artistic disciplines. It’s a big mix. The audience is different than theater audience and, I think, they are more in the listening and in demand.
I express my universe in my creations and my point of view of the world. I have many acts very differents but I like it’s aesthetics, poetics, visual and engaged. For me, burlesque is a beautiful feminine way of expression. I use great Historical woman or literary figures for my characters. Many of time, they’re strong, or become it, and they’re witches. My stage name Cyr C. Délicieuse is an tribute to Circée (the witch in Odyssey of Ulysse), a tribute to Lily St Cyr. and a nickname with my own, Cyriel.
