Product Description

The most revealing film of the year....

Having sold out four nights in a row at London's Koko and established herself as one of the top burlesque performers in the world, Immodesty takes us into the heart of burlesque: a whirlwind of feathers, diamonds and the world's top performers, with interviews from past legends and a fascinating peep behind the velvet curtain. An intimate portrait of a vintage art-form.

It's hard to move in showbiz-land without becoming engulfed in an ocean of feathers, fans, corsets, sequins, and rhinestones. Just look at artists like Kylie, Katy Perry, Pink, Lady Gaga ,not forgetting the Saturday night staple, Strictly Come Dancing. The spirit of sexy camp - as seen in the film Cabaret, set in Weimar Germany, or Moulin Rouge - is back, and with Hollywood blockbuster 'Burlesque' now in production, starring Christina Aguilera and Cher, 2010 is the year burlesque crosses over to the global mainstream.

Immodesty Blaize, crowned the Queen of Burlesque 2007 in Las Vegas , first appeared in the media performing with Goldfrapp in videos and stage shows. With her signature glamorous brand of erotic, ironic theatrical entertainment, Immodesty is uniquely placed to give us a whistlestop tour of the history of burlesque. She has spearheaded the genre's return to prominence in Europe as a sophisticated art-form. In a culture where we're constantly bombarded with overt sexual imagery, Immodesty's shows bring back high voltage glamour, humour and celebration, with the charm and allure of old Hollywood. She is very much in the tradition of national heroines such as Diana Dors and Joan Collins, who combine knowing sexuality with a British wit and a keen intelligence. Immodesty Blaize is a real woman with star quality - a modern day British Bombshell with the curves and the fun factor.

"Britain's burlesque superstar. Jaw dropping show...unmissable."
-- TIME OUT, 2009

"She's Britain's best showgirl. She's one hundred per cent pure glamour, with more curves than Jessica rabbit and more *pow* than a brass band." -- PAUL O'GRADY MBE, 2010

"The foremost burlesque performer in the UK. Ms Blaize is a striking presence...her face possesses a beauty made to sneer at the puniness of men....because of her influence, burlesque is big right now." -- THE INDEPENDENT MAGAZINE, 2009

"The undisputed queen of British burlesque." -- THE TIMES, 2009

I borrowed this DVD from a friend last night and bought myself a copy today! Its deffinately one I'll watch more than once. Immodesty's costumes and sets are absolutley stunning. I would highly highly reccomend this DVD for anyone with an interest in burlesque and for anyone who loved to dress up when they were little - burlesque will put and adult twist on those fantasies and games. One of the important points for me is that everyone interviewed in this DVD knows what they are talking about and put across their different views of where burlesque originated and what it means to them. There are also some fantastic interviews with dancers from the past which adds some true charm and cheek to the film.

Take a seasickness tablet before watching this DVD. I agree with all of the comments above, with regard to the quality of the performers. However, the constant changes in perspective during the shows detracts from the performances and left me feeling dizzy. The interviews were too short, although interesting and amusing. So I am left wondering what the focus of the DVD was and whether or not to buy any more.

I bought this before going to a Burlesque show and it was educational informative and entertaining. Immodesty Blaize set the standard for the world in this art and should be hailed as such. DVD arrived well packed in good condition as expected and I am happy withe price.

It is excellent viewing, and Miss Imodesty can hold the stage as well as camera. I enjoyed the documentary-performance style of the DVD. I agree it was abit aimless at times, though part of the joy was to meander around the performance halls, dressing rooms, old footage and interviews to gather your own impression of Burlesque. The attitude of both the current performers and earlier ones made for an absolutely riveting listen - people and what they end up doing with their lives is always an amazing story to listen to. I thoroughly recommend this DVD for anyone considering buying it - go for it!
