Mtl_AuntBMontreal Burlesque Festival: Review Belinda Messick October 31, 2019 Arts, Burlesque, Dance, Performers & Artists, Reviews, Theatre Montreal’s Burlesque Festival For their 6th edition, the Montreal Burlesque Festival presented an interesting mix of entertainers from locals from Québec, and international performers from New York, Paris and all over the world and we’re still reeling from last weekend’s fabulous show. The champagne 🍾 was Poppin and the screams never stopped with this spectacular event that was put by the fabulous Scarlett James and her fabulous crew! Since this would be mine and my best friend’s first Burlesque event we didn’t know what to expect? But we were ready for some excitement and dancing. On our way down to the venue we decided to read a little about Burlesque and this is what we found out! What is Burlesque? From what I have read burlesque pushes’ seduction to the extreme because people have gone to the other extreme. There is no romance whatsoever, no seduction anymore. Burlesque shows people how to play again. Some people think that’s what we find in Striptease Club. But they are working on the sexual aspect. Burlesque is on the plane of emotion, of the psychological. But it is about variety shows combining music, dance, and song but always presented in a naughty and sensual world. Let the show begin! We arrived at Club Soda early enough to pick some great seats in the upper risers. We got a couple of drinks and sat ready for the show to begin. As we sat there waiting for the show to start we looked around and all the people that had gathered were all dressed in there best outfits. Just watching the other guest dress in there 50 & 60 gear was entertaining for us. But the show is starting and we are so ready to pop our Montreal Burlesque Festival Cherries. The show began and the host was just awesome. He kept everyone ready and on their toes. The cheers never stopped. As the curtain rose we watched in anticipation, our eyes never left the stage. We screamed and cheered. There were so many different types of routines one could never get bored. Good times always have to end and unfortunately, we were not able to stay for the whole show, as my bestie is a new momma and she had to return home. But all I can say is that I am so ready for some more BURLESQUE in my life. Bravo to all the team and KUDOS to all the performers!! You all truly made me want to dance!!! Group Dance She has legs!!!! Scarlett James Full House at Club Soda Feathers for days One of my favorites Rise Up!!
