Vintage Burlesque & Cabaret
Burlesque is an hommage to the big shows at Moulin Rouge in Paris during the Belle Epoque, the glory days of silent film, the Berliner cabarets from the roaring twenties and the glamour of Hollywood’s golden years.
The burlesque strip-tease, also known as ‘the art of tease’ is the ‘moment suprême’ of each show. An art, yes, because the ‘strip’ may be about revealing what is hidden underneath several layers of exquisite costuming, but would be nothing without the ‘tease’, or the very art of seduction. Inspired by beauties from era’s past, each of our dancers will charm you with their beauty and tongue-in-cheek humor. Step inside our realm where eroticism rhymes with mystery and where glamour, insolence, humour and mischief are en vogue.
Since 2010, the impact of celebrity Dita Von Teese and films like Tournée and Burlesque have broadened beyond the scope of theatre and show business. Burlesque has become a worldwide phenomenon, attracting an audience who likes to play by the rules of elegance and sensuous tease.
