A real kick for dancers

By CLAIRE ZULKEY
Special to the Chicago Tribune
June 30, 2004

Annie Terrell found herself living out many people's worst nightmare, and she was loving every second of it. She didn't originally intend to take off her clothes in front of 100 people, but it just looked like so much fun.

What we mean by . . . Burlesque. By Lara Clifton for The Times


Burlesque means bawdy satire and it started out in the London music halls. Women wearing shorts would speak to the audience, which was thought of as very risqué at the time. Wearing shorts was bad enough but making direct eye contact with the audience and telling dirty jokes made it a very low form of art.

Tamara and I call ourselves the burlesque circus and we like to combine different aspects of old theatre, vaudeville and the sideshow feel of Victorian circuses.

Take your kit off, as burlesque reveals its pulling power

by JONATHAN TREW
the Scotland on Sunday

Myth has it that the flesh-baring aspect of burlesque really took off when a female performer suffered a Janet Jackson-style wardrobe malfunction, snapped a strap and exposed a bare shoulder. Noting the enthusiastic reaction of the crowd, the aforementioned strap mysteriously ‘snapped’ every night thereafter and thus striptease was born.

Bump and grind, minus the sleaze

by JANE ROCCA
the Age

Hi-Ball Burlesque began performing in Melbourne in 2002, held a residency at the Kitten Club, and did a stint at the Spiegeltent this year. The women are not full-time dancers - they hold down various jobs during the day, ranging from nursing to advertising - but, on stage, they wear showgirl outfits that boast a Las Vegas heat.

Hello Dollies again
The Dim Sum Dollies are back, and better than ever
in the Singapore New Paper

The knee-slapping cabaret act of Selena Tan, Pamela Oei and Emma Yong, whose satirical eye on all things Singaporean seems to be on the threshold of becoming an exportable homegrown brand name like Zouk or Creative Technologies.

The Opera Burlesque
by LILY BRAGGE for the Age

The current modern appetite for opera to be amplified and super-sexy has the purists in despair at this continued dumbing down of the art form, but there are countless new admirers, who, aided by the sight and sound of a pretty face, impressive bosom and a bit of rock'n'roll reverb, are discovering that they really do dig the likes of Mozart, Verdi and Delibes after all.

SuicideGirls Live Burlesque Review
by CLAIRE HALLIDAY for the Age

It's the traditional burlesque boom-boom, but it's served up with the backing beats of the independent music scene's icons. With a floating lineup of women who have been described by more than one hip music magazine as the types of indie-rock chicks you would expect to see in the mosh pit at a Strokes show - but with their tops off - SuicideGirls claim to smash the stereotype of beauty by offering an alternative alternative.

SuicideGirls Live Burlesque Review
by CHARLES PURCELL for the Sudney Morning Herald

But website co-founder Missy Suicide doesn't consider what she does as porn, even if the site has partial and sometimes full-frontal nudity. She says the big difference is that the images on suicidegirls.com are a reflection of the models' own visions.

"In traditional pornography, they carry out the photographer's vision or the client's - but rarely the model's," Missy says.

The Suicide Girls pose in many ways. Some appear with lollipops covering their privates. Others bathe naked in tubs of cheese puffs. Yet there is one thing you will never see them pose with.

"It's actually illegal to pose with the penguins in Antarctica," Missy says. "You can't disturb the penguins in their natural environment. Our Suicide Girl there is a research scientist, so she knows the law."

That's aquatainment!
by LYNDSEY WINSHIP for the Guardian
published: November 30, 2006

'It's always been laughed at," says Tamara Tyrer, co-founder of burlesque outfit the Whoopee Club. "But I've always thought synchronised swimming was beautiful. So I wanted to make a show that celebrated it."

Stripping the light fantastic
When Betty Blaze tells people she’s a burlesque dancer, they look at her as if she has two heads. Which she does - at least on stage.

Blaze is one of hundreds of burlesque performers ... featured at the Great Boston Burlesque Exposition, which opens tonight .... It’s produced by The Professional Burlesque Society, a nonprofit organization offering educational and professional resources for aspiring strippers, sideshow artists and vaudeville performers.
