Burlexe – Burlesque Show with a Difference

By | The Show | No Comments

Burlexe is a unique burlesque show, mixing burlesque performance with the stories of the performers who’ve shaped the art form.

Here are a few of the nice things people have said about us:-

‘Refreshingly relaxed format… an intriguing avenue for burlesque’ – The Stage

‘One of the most innovative and unique burlesque shows, this is a top quality event in an intimate venue with some of Britain’s best performers. You would be mad to miss it quite frankly’ – Burlesque Bible

‘Take a look at the Facebook page for Burlexe and you will get some idea of the great show that’s on at the moment at the Shadow Lounge in London’s Soho… the emphasis is on storytelling and tease. I would give this show 10 out of 10. You will be entertained’ – Via Trip Advisor

‘Its all female cast of actresses and burlesquers present a moving tribute to the stubborn and uncompromising amibitoin of the women who choose stripping as a medium for self-expression. The stories are the stars of the show’ – Erotic Review

‘It made me feel proud to be a woman… I found this show to be enlightening, life-affirming and exhilarating’ – Frost Magazine

The show is not currently on but, alternatively, you can buy tickets for spin-off male burlesque show Boylexe.
