If Only They Were Actually Naked
AMY KATE HORN:
My friend in the burlesque world just called to tell me how pissed local performers are about this week’s burlesque feature (they’re saying it’s insulting, it’s poorly researched, it doesn’t portray an accurate picture of the Seattle scene).
Maybe they’ll incorporate some of that anger into their dancing. It’d be nice if something interesting were included. Of course, they’re right to feel insulted by the piece, it’s totally insulting. That doesn’t mean it’s not accurate. It reveals the burlesque trend for what it is, a burlesque (see definition 2) of eros.
Which, I hear, is the proposed title for Christopher Frizzelle’s novella.
