Artist Statement: Burlesque is a form of variety performance popular between the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The word burlesque means a joke or parody. Women performed dances with this burlesque style to show power over the opposite sex. Beautiful Travesty presents an abstracted look at the world of burlesque, a female empowering yet sexual exploiting world. The piece presents three different burlesque dancers performing their routines. The use of dark and light represents the complex history of the world of burlesque while presenting the footage in an interesting way.
