The seventh annual international Berlin Burlesque Festival took place from the 17-20th October.
High-end burlesque acts from across Germany, Switzerland, France, Ireland, UK, Spain, Poland, Italy, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Vietnam, USA, Canada and Australia entertained new and seasoned Burlesque fans in two iconic Berlin venues; Heimathafen NeuKolln and Wintergarten. The performers dazzled the audience with 3 fantastic days showcasing the variety and creative freedom possible within the art of Burlesque.
Death defying , jaw dropping, laughter inducing. The festival provoked all the emotions. Imagination, diversity and the pushing of boundaries was the manifest for a multitude of artists that delivered spell binding performances.
Congratulations to Marlene Von Steenvag, Else Edelstahl and their team for production of a brilliant and memorable event.
