OBSCENE BEAUTY dives into the present day NYC Neo-Burlesque scene—its history, players and impact. Burlesque has been documented as part of New York since 1868, constantly evolving to reflect and parody the sociocultural themes of its time. As an exploration of sexuality, awareness, comedy and art, OBSCENE BEAUTY follows the key artists within the community and examines how they utilize their three minutes on stage as a platform for their own sexual, social and political commentary. By following some of the most esteemed burlesque houses in NYC, OBSCENE BEAUTY looks into the lives of the performers and the artistry of a genre that has been able to withstand the test of time.
