Tournament of Tease

Our London burlesque show, Burlexe will be attending the last ever Tournament of Tease in London. It will be taking place at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club on Thursday 2nd December. Join us and please come and say ‘Hi’.

For anybody who’s new to our burlesque shows, here’s what we’re all about…

Burlexe is a project about the women who have made and shaped burlesque over the past century. The live show feature monologues based on true stories of pioneers of the genre together with music and burlesque performance.

It’s the herstory of showgirls, peeking behind the curtain and exploring why women choose this art form. Expect salacious stories, hilarious tales from the dressing room and plenty of tease.

We’ve just held our very first burlesque show starring Javine Hylton (below) in Covent Garden. See below for all the burlesque photos and tag yourself on Facebook if you made it to the event.

We are looking to host further burlesque shows in the New Year. If you’d like to take part, be interviewed, come down or tell us what you think, please feel free to email us at burlexe@gmail.com.

Otherwise there’s our online version packed full of feminine fun and inspiration to sprinkle some glitter into your life. You can learn burlesque dancing basics and all the makeup tutorials you’ll ever need. We hope you find it enjoyable.

(Our burlesque show cast: Javine Hylton, Kiki Kaboom, Chloe Ewart, Kyrah Davis, Fancy Chance, Dympna Messenger and Coco Deville.)
