Glitter Tribe (2016), Opens February 20th
Burlesque is art. It’s life. It’s the heart and soul of the performer. It doesn’t need to follow the raw, political, sensual or beautiful traditions of the past. It can be what the performers need it to be.
Respectfully revealing, Glitter Tribe explores how and why performers got started on the burlesque trail, the demons they’ve faced and conquered, costume creation, their journeys to find their own unique stage presence… and so much more.
One of the many great triumphs of Glitter Tribe is how it gives a really diverse range of performers their voice. Burlesque isn’t just for women – it’s for anyone of any gender who want to perform their heart out. Male neo-burlesque performers offer a counterpart which explores masculinity without defining it, acknowledging and exploring stereotypes.
