Event Details

The history of Burlesque is a vast and surprisingly long one. Though most consider Burlesque as an art form to be purely American with its start being 70 years ago at best, it actually began long before then, and is deeply rooted in the class system of western civilization.

Burlesque History & Ethics covers a vast swath of the history of “common man’s” theatre, and why it is such an important part of western culture. We will then explore the ethical impact this form of theatrical storytelling has on society today and what its moral and political implications are for the future.

This class is part of the Academy Burlesque I, II, III and All Levels courses and is also available as an independent workshop.
