Classically Burlesque Presents: Vintage Glamour, Edition Noir, June 8-9, pre-party at 8 p.m., show at 9 p.m., Millibo Art Theatre, themat.org.
hen we spoke to burlesque dancer Penelope MaisOui
last year, she said that burlesque was just another method of storytelling, but perhaps one of the most intimate and personal methods there is. “There is no director,” she said. “You are your own costume designer, your own writer. You choose your own name. You’re writing your own story and you’re owning it and putting it on display with the most amount of sparkles you can fit on your body.” Now, MaisOui will be hosting a showcase of glamorous and glitzy burlesque performances at the Millibo Art Theatre
, with a lineup of professional performers presenting their best femme fatale routines. The audience is encouraged to get in the mood with their own vintage costumes to fit the noir theme.
