“JAW-DROPPINGLY PROVOCATIVE AND GENUINELY ENDEARING.”
— Glenn Kenny, ROGEREBERT.COM
Pioneering New York “No Wave” underground filmmaker and visual artist Beth B takes us into the 21st century underground and reveals a secret world where cutting-edge performers are taking hold of a taboo art form, Burlesque, and driving it to extremes that most people have never seen. It’s satire. It’s parody. It’s a populist blend of art and entertainment that gives new meaning to the word “transgression.” Above all, it is mind-blowing fun and a fascinating depiction of personal liberation through art.
Exposed looks at eight boundary-breaking burlesque stars who use their naked bodies as canvases. These cutting-edge artists combine politics, satire, and physical comedy to challenge the audience’s notions of gender identity, disability, and sexuality. Starring Bambi the Mermaid, Bunny Love, Dirty Martini, Julie Atlas Muz, Mat Fraser, Rose Wood, Tigger! and World Famous *BOB*.
