Burlesque dancer says council should reconsider performing ban
As a burlesque performer, I find the council s decision insulting and ridiculous. Dismissing burlesque in this way demonstrates that this supposedly arts-oriented group has no idea what they re dealing with. Burlesque performers put an astounding amount
As a burlesque performer, I find the council's decision insulting and ridiculous. Dismissing burlesque in this way demonstrates that this supposedly arts-oriented group has no idea what they're dealing with.
Burlesque performers put an astounding amount of hard work, time, and creativity into their performances, from concept, costumes, and choreography to rehearsals, fundraising, and dealing with misconceptions and discrimination from venues like this one. It is a labor of love and tremendously difficult to pull off.
From what I gather, this troupe has proven themselves to be a talented and committed group of artists. Their efforts and achievements are being invalidated by an organization that claims to support the arts.
The council should reconsider its decision and either get the permit or work to have it waived.
