Eight things burlesque couldn’t exist without

Eight things, without which burlesque as we know it would not exist:

1.Facebook

Without the Book of Faces, how could we find gigs and tell everyone about our lives? (possible answer: go back to MySpace…)

2.Money

Without money, how could we buy pretty things to throw on the floor and get stolen by drunk audience members?

Image

3. Music

Without music, how could we do all the ridiculous things we do on a stage, and still look cool?

Image

4.Audience

Without an audience, who would clap and cheer even when we get stuck in our clothes and can’t get out?

Image

5.Rude Body Parts

Without rude body parts, we would really be pushed for material. How would we end our acts?

Image

6.Fabric

Without fabric to wave about, look exciting or take off, what would we actually do in our acts? Burlesque strippers need clothes.

7.Sex

Without sex, would people really have kept watching burlesque for over a hundred years? Hmmmm let me think….Image

8.A Sense of Humour

Without a sense of humour, would any of us still be doing this?
