From Gratification to Empowerment
Burlesque entertainers of Sydney, Australia reveal how strip tease of the 1990’s transformed from a gratification form of entertainment for men into women’s empowerment and beyond.
From the working class strip joints of Sydney’s Kings Cross and the feminist empowerment movement in the 1990’s, to underground bars and commercial vaudeville entertainment of today, comes this documentary feature film that reveals the transformation of the art-form of burlesque in Sydney, Australia. This mostly underground and generally misunderstood art-form is interpreted quite differently depending on the artist you are exposed to, but the message, to empower people, remains.
