Burlesque star, Luna Rosa, performed one of our burlesque monologues at the Clittorati Party. The amazing cast was a list of who’s who in London burlesque and cabaret.
Luna Rosa and the Clittorati Party
Our theatrical London Burlesque Shows combine story, song and performance for the herstory of showgirls. We celebrate the women who embraced and showcased their femininity through the art form.
We first met Luna Rosa during our initial auditions process. She said, “Burlesque is about freedom of creative expression of passion, power, anger, happiness, sexuality, femininity and the beauty of the feminine form.” Immediately we were hooked.
Who better to take on the Burlexe burlesque show mantle and celebrate women and femininity in their many forms. Needless to say, she did us proud.
We joined an exciting burlesque and theatrical line-up that included another Burlexe burlesque show star, Rubyyy Jones. Alongside, organiser Lady Cheek aka. Zoe Charles who has since done a TED Talk on femininity.
he London burlesque event was held at Paper Dress Vintage Shop in support of the Orchid Project. It raised awareness and funds to tackle female genital mutilation. A worthy cause from the cabaret sisterhood.
