Stripped Screw Burlesque

21 Jul

On July 18th I had the opportunity of seeing Stripped Screw’s Hard Love burlesque show. I’ve been to burlesque shows in the past, but this one was more seductive than the others I’ve seen.

This show made it quite clear that burlesque is in fact an art form. Every act played out their own way of seducing the audience. They made their entrance grand with costumes and props that wowed the audience. The performers usually began their dance fully covered, but we knew that by the end, this clothing would ultimately fall to the floor. The anticipation built up until they would inevitably reveal their glittery undergarments and pasties. We would then see them twirl their pasties and shake their backside to a crowd cheering them on.

This seduction played out over and over again in each act, but each in different ways. A particular favorite of mine was when one of the dancers was dancing behind sheer silk-like material, which she spun and twirled, creating ripples. This lured us, seeing her silhouette move behind the sheer curtain she had created.

We also saw vinyl, cat ears, trench coats, cloaks, and much more. The music always matched the performance, seducing us with every beat.  I would recommend this show to all of the hardcore burlesque fans.
