The New Zealand Burlesque Festival Legacy

Burlesque performers from New Zealand and guest international performers reflect on Burlesque and their journey to Glamazonia. The legacy documentary was filmed over the last seven years. It follows the personal journeys of profile performers in the New Zealand burlesque community. How they chose their names, what is personal about burlesque for them, what the highlights have been during their time twirling tassels and popping buttons on stage. In this film they share how they found themselves dancing in the glitterverse. Performers discuss feminism, stigmas, wardrobe malfunctions, styles of performance, inspirations and achievements. The highs and lows, bravely exposing themselves in front of rooms of strangers. Reborn as creatures of the night clubs. 

Art Nouveau Manifesto Poster vert 2020 WEBjpg
Le Art Nouveau Manifesto

A documentary focused on the explorations of Art Nouveau by Artist and Filmmaker Samuel Wheeler. This documentary was made after conducting a research trip in Paris, attending exhibitions and visiting multiple galleries. Compiling 256 photos of six changes in costume, modelled by the burlesque performer Duchess deBerry in the Art Nouveau style and then producing paintings inspired from them. A personal battle struggling with the acute social anxiety, chronic pain and fatigue, the documentary is a triumph of the creative spirit. I have intimately seen lamps by Tiffany’s, jewelry by René Lalique, glassworks by Émile Gallé, posters and sketches by Toulouse-Lautrec... the list is endless. What can we learn from this Manifesto?
