Burlesque extravaganza

BURLESQUE EXTRAVAGANZA is a travel diary, a road movie into Burlesque world made by Grace Hall, during her tournée between North Europe, USA and Canada.

The film is a magic box full of fantasy, skills, dance, singing, circus, magic, trasformism, unique and talented performers and their points of view about a magic world that they support everyday with love and passion, constantly evolving to create something new and astonishing.

The movie shows an undraped backstage and the real “behind the scene” of creating an act.
We will discover the importance of make-up and hairstyle, the creation of the costume and all those elements who create an act.

This project also focuses on the stereotypes about women and on the modern world vision of women and sexuality. Burlesque is a real therapy who increases confidence and helps you to love yourself.
