Zelia Rose – Burlesque and Dance through the ages – Sold Out
Movement based workshop as part of Stockholm Burlesque Festival

Zelia Workshop Banner

Sneak a peak into burlesque’s colourful and rich history to find out where our inspirations came from and how they started. Indulge into the history behind burlesque’s key figures and the celebration of the women through expression, sexual liberation and rebellion. Find out how burlesque has become how it is today and where it is going? Be prepared to dance, be captivated and engaged through this mind and movement workshop.
Art history has done so much ground work for us and forms what we see in culture today. Today making your own art is about doing what’s true to you and doing things in the spirit of inquiry.
Learn how to transcend this into your own creativity with understanding and inspiration of years gone by. You’ll be taken through the physicality and undertones of 18th century burlesque to now. Understand the inspirations of the time and motivation behind the styles and influences. This workshop will explore movement and character, focusing on dance and physical theatre.
