Wat ligt er nu weer op de matDUTCH * TOUCH

Burlesque Mail Art Call

What is Burlesque..?
- 1 : a literary or dramatic work that seeks to ridicule by means of grotesque exaggeration or comic imitation
- 2 : mockery usually by caricature
- 3 : theatrical entertainment of a broadly humorous often earthy character consisting of short turns, comic skits, and sometimes striptease acts

Burlesque is a direct descendant of the Comedia dell'arte where principal characters would carry a "burle"—a stick with a padded end— with which they would slap the other players for comic effect (the origin of "slapstick" comedy).
Burlesque performers often create elaborate sets with lush, colorful costumes, mood-appropriate music, and dramatic lighting.
Burlesque is a style of entertainment that encompasses pastiche, parody, and wit.
