Burlesque Undressed

Feathers and fans, corsets and costumes, glitter and rhinestones...

It's hard to move in showbiz-land without becoming engulfed in an ocean of feathers, fans, corsets, sequins, and rhinestones. Just look at artists like Kylie, Katy Perry, Pink, Lady Gaga, not forgetting the Saturday night stable, Strictly Come Dancing. The spirit of sexy camp - as seen in the film Cabaret set in Weimar Germany, or Moulin Rouge - is back, and with Hollywood blockbuster Burlesque now in production, starring Christina Aguilera and Cher, 2010 is the year burlesque crosses over to the global mainstream.

The glitz and spectacle of burlesque is coming to cinemas nationwide in BURLESQUE UNDRESSED – a feature-length film starring Europe’s queen of burlesque Immodesty Blaize, produced by EMI and distributed in partnership with More2Screen.

BURLESQUE UNDRESSED is a lavish and dazzling journey right into the heart of the art-form, featuring a compelling mix of live performance, interviews from burlesque stars past and present, captivating music and all-round show-stopping entertainment.

British burlesque superstar Immodesty Blaize peels back the curtain to reveal her world of high-octane glamour, and gives an exclusive peep behind-the-scenes to expose the work involved in the art of the tease to produce a signature act of perfection.

From the elaborate spectacular costume designs to the impressive on-stage gimmicks, Immodesty and her pals showcase the best of burlesque in a dazzling explosion of seductive live performance, including footage from her very own sell-out Tease Show.

Veteran burlesque legends reveal hilarious anecdotes from the original Golden Era, including running foul of the censors and getting jailed for shaking their behind even when covered up!

This high-definition film tells the real story of the genre, charting its rise and fall from early British roots to an American evolution, and finally rejoicing in burlesque's 21st century revival. BURLESQUE UNDRESSED also features a special appearance from Marc Almond and a blaizin' big band soundtrack of heart-pounding memorable music.

Immodesty Blaize, crowned the Queen of Burlesque 2007 in Las Vegas, first appeared in the media performing with Goldfrapp in videos and stage shows. With her signature glamorous brand of erotic, ironic theatrical entertainment, Immodesty is uniquely placed to give us a whistlestop tour of the history of burlesque. She has spearheaded the genre's return to prominence in Europe as a sophisticated art-form. In a culture where we're constantly bombarded with overt sexual imagery, Immodesty's shows bring back high voltage glamour, humour and celebration, with the charm and allure of old Hollywood. She is very much in the tradition of national heroines such as Diana Dors and Joan Collins, who combine knowing sexuality with a British wit and a keen intelligence. Immodesty Blaize is a real woman with star quality - a modern day British Bombshell with the curves and the fun factor.
