The Burlesque Imposter - FemFest 2022


Sweet@The Poets - Main Room
Cabaret and Variety

The true story of Fanny Dent, a self-conscious misfit in the unlikely world of burlesque. The show begins with an exploration of burlesque history, starting with its Victorian roots when it was used as a form of satire. What follows is a mixture of comedy, real-life stories and spoofing burlesque routines as Fanny goes on a journey of self-discovery. By questioning mainstream notions of female empowerment and confronting the reasons behind her insecurities, Fanny demonstrates that burlesque can be so much more than sequins and heels.
