On the initiative of the Accademia delle Essenze Artistiche, a non-profit association that aims to promote culture and creativity in all its forms of expression through volunteering and social promotion, the Taormina Burlesque Festival is the first event of this kind organised in South Italy .
During the two days, Italian and foreign artists wil show us the many aspects of burlesque: classic, cabaret, new burlesque and boylesque: Koko la Douce, Miss Botero, Miss Sugar Rush, Celeste de Moriae, Trixie Whipp and the famous Sicilian dancer Black Bijou, who recently performed at the World Burlesque Games of London.
Black Bijou >> her burlesque underground philosophy
The “Burlesque Underground” project and philosophy is to combine the art of Burlesque with the Underground Culture of our day, building a bridge between past and present, creating a series of past and visionary-futuristic artistic references. Ancient and modern fused into the theatrical “here and now” on an imaginary and futuristic journey. The sensuality of burlesque, the typical movements of this discipline embrace alternative artistic forms, characterized by excessive experimentalism and an ideological, transgressive and anarchist attitude. Burlesque Underground opposes traditional culture by incorporating and modifying it. A meltin pot of cultures, dance styles and music, between history, myths and legends. The fundamental feature is the attention to the materials of the costumes, purely alternative and recycle; to point out the philosophy of the genre and to become the promoter of the consumer and naturalistic message that distinguishes him.
Saturday 22 September 2018 afternoon > “Vintage Afternoon”, an afternoon dedicated to photographic services on board of fantastic vintage cars on the most evocative spot of Taormina.
