I’m really starting to miss planning out burlesque performances. And now that I have the opportunity to make my own music to go with it, it’s become a lot more appealing to me as an art form.
I had this idea for a routine I really want to create yesterday, but the question is: Would it be a good idea to make it part of a concert, or would that be the wrong place for it? I’m not sure how any kind of striptease would be received outside of the burlesque scene. I’m a bit worried that what is supposed to be an unapologetic, empowering act of body positivity will be met with assumptions based in, well, the fact that women in music are frequently objectified. Furthermore, it’s just not the same audience. People who pay to see a concert might not be at all interested in burlesque, so even the classiest of acts might possibly offend someone. Then again, this wouldn’t be a permanent part of our concerts in any way, so as long as it was clearly part of the marketing of that particular show… Anyway, details aside. Just as far as the concept goes, a burlesque routine placed somewhere in a concert - yay or nay? What do you think?
Det är sjukt fint på hela Gotland! :)
