17 – 21 December 2014 - BURLESQUE & POLITIQUE
Que quelques semaines a attendre pour la 6e édition du Paris Burlesque Festival sous le thème de l’engagement militant ! Du 17 au 21 décembre 2014, le festival fait campagne avec humour et glamour pour plus de tolérance, d’amour et de solidarité. Cette année, c’est au Centre musical Fleury Goutte d’Or-Barbara, dans le 18e arrondissement de Paris, qu’il installe son quartier général pour cinq jours de festivités. Dans une France abstentionniste, lassée des discours et des manœuvres politiciennes, tentée par des idées conservatrices et intolérantes, le Paris Burlesque Festival s’engage en proposant un temps d’expression et de réflexion, à travers l’art du burlesque, autour des sujets qui animent et souvent divisent les Français. Libertés individuelles, égalité, militantisme social, féministe, écologiste, … les artistes du festival abordent ces thèmes en offrant des numéros d’effeuillages parfois drôles et légers, parfois sensibles et touchants, et d’autres fois impertinents et provocateurs. Se mettre à nu pour susciter le dialogue, voilà l’ambition de la grande revue 2014, BURLESQUE & POLITIQUE
La 6e édition du Paris Burlesque Festival, c’est:
* L’élection de MISS PARIS BURLESQUE FESTIVAL, concours international tous styles et tous thèmes
confondus, le mercredi 17;
* Une grande revue d’effeuillage BURLESQUE & POLITIQUE, les jeudi 18, vendredi 19 et samedi 20,
jouée deux fois par jour à 19h et à 21h, avec des artistes de renommée internationale;
* Des performances et des happenings tout au long du festival;
* Une exposition collective de street-art et des installations vidéo, du vendredi 12 décembre au
dimanche 11 janvier;
* Des concerts rock et garage, suivis d’une soirée clubbing punk’n’roll, le samedi 20 à La JAVA;
* Des masterclass et stages d’initiation à l’effeuillage avec l’École des Filles de Joie, le dimanche 21.
Not long to go before the 6th edition of the Paris Burlesque Festival opens its doors! From 17 to 21 December 2014, the festival campaigns with humour and glamour for more tolerance, love and solidarity. This year, it is the Music Centre Fleury Goutte d’Or Barbara, in the 18th arrondissement of Paris that will welcome the five-day festival. In a France tired of speeches and political maneuvers, tempted by conservative and intolerant ideas, the Paris Burlesque Festival is committed to offer a time to reflex and express ourselves, through the art of burlesque and around the subjects that drive and often divide the French people. Individual freedom, equality, social activism, feminist, environmentalist, … the artists performing at the festival are addressing these issues by offering something funny and sexy, sometimes sensitive and touching, and sometimes irreverent and provocative. All of them are stripping off to generate a dialogue..this is the ambition of BURLESQUE & POLITICS
The 6th edition of the Paris Burlesque Festival is also:
* The election of MISS PARIS BURLESQUE FESTIVAL, international competition open to all burlesque styles – Wednesday 17th
* Burlesque gala with the theme BURLESQUE & POLITICS – Thursday 18th & Friday 19th – Twice a day, 7pm and 9pm
*Performances from international artists EVERY DAY;
* Art exhibition and videos – From Friday 12th December to Sunday 11th January
* Rock concerts, followed by a punk’n’roll night, Saturday 20th December at the JAVA;
* Burlesque Masterclasses with l’École des Filles de Joie, – Sunday 21st December

What’s your burlesque name ?
Burlesque Bible now has its very own website to come up with a burlesque name, or at least some suggestions to get you started.
We have thousands of combinations available and we keep on updating the website with some new and fresh ideas.
We’ve also found a very interesting article, giving tips on what to do or what to avoid…
OK, I’m going to say this first, do not use:
Kitten, Kitty, Vixen, Honey, Von, Lux or Deluxe, Lola, de Ville, Violette, Scarlette, Pinky, Femme or Belle.
Why, you may ask? Because these names have been taken a million times over! Seriously, this is like calling yourself Jennifer. In fact, you might as well use Jennifer, as that will be unique to the burlesque community.
And, nothing is more shattering than coming to perform and having an audience member say “Oh, I thought you were that other gal!”
And, honestly, you don’t need to tread the same ground; you should want to have your own, individual personality.
This has always been the tried and true: the name of your pet and the first street you lived on. (In my case it would be Natasha Tacoma.)
Makes and Models of Cars
Sure, de Ville is out of the running (since you’d never want to be compared to the legendary Kitten de Ville), but look at all these choices: Continental, Coupe, SuperSport, Zephyr, Valiant, Corvair, Mustang, Nova, Futura, Mercury, Rocket 88, Metropolitan, Citrone, Fiat.
Cocktails and Booze
Yes, there are names besides Martini: Campari, Negroni, Gin Fizz, Dubonet, etc. Did you know there is a cocktail called Poussé Café? How about a play on the name Frenet Branca, a digestif from the late 1800’s.
Pearl, Ruby, Emerald, Opal, Garnet, Toapz…you get the idea.
These are slang for ‘woman’: Baby, Bearcat, Skirt, Hoofer, Broad, Bimbo, Chassis, Dame, Doll, Dollybird, Gold-Digger, Moll, Twist…
Words in another language
Star in French is etoile; fire in Spanish is fuego. There are several websites that offer basic word translation when googled. Do be sure that you are pronouncing it properly!
Get a Drag Queen to Name You!
Those gals have such great names like Amanda Wreckinwith, Sugar Placebo, Chinchilla Carcoat or Maria Von Mantrapp.
Watch Old Movies, Read Books!
Do you know there is a Lolita Haze and Dolores Haze? Know where those came from? That’s the name of the girl in LOLITA. What about Eve Harrington, the conniving ingénue in ALL ABOUT EVE? Or better yet, Bettie Davis’ character in that film, Margot Channing? Constance Chatterly (LADY CHATTERLY’S LOVER), Lady de Winter (THE THREE MUSKETEERS), Kid Twist (THE STING) are possibilities!
Well, here are some names I’ve come up with:
April May June—“The Girl for Every Day!”
Danielle Boom!—“Queen of the Wild Frontier”
Mitzi Tov—“Look at Those Blessings!”
Delta Dawn (This is a song from the 70’s)
Lady Mustache (Good for gender bender performer)
Dutch Courage (this is slang for liquid courage, aka booze)
Dieter Von Cockenstien (well, OK, that speaks for itself)
Oodles O’Quim (thank you comic-book author Alan Moore, from the sequel to graphic novel THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, BLACK DOSSIER.)
Tia Juana Hooker aka TJ Hooker
Cutty Sark (a clipper ship and a brand of Scotch)
Poussé Café (a fancy cocktail made up several different liquers)
Duke L’Orange (maybe best for a male performer…)
Miranda Warning (or Miranda Rights)
Terry Velour (from the fabric terrycloth velour)
If you take any of these names, please let me know ASAP, as I’ll want to remove them from the list.
Any name you pick you should Google the name followed by the word burlesque. If it pops up, you should keep looking!
If it doesn’t, you should join the Miss Exotic World yahoo group and introduce yourself “Hi, I am So-N-So from (your town here) and I am a burlesque performer!”
I hope this helps!
