BURLESQUE MAIL ART CALL:
What is burlesque ...?
1. A literary or dramatic work that seeks to ridicule by means of grotesque exaggeration or comic imitation
2. mockery usually by character
3. theatrical entertainment of a broadly humorous often earthy character of short turns, comic skits and sometimes striptease acts
Burlesque is a direct descendant of the Comedia dell'arte where principal characters would carry a "burle" - a stick with a padded end - with which they would slap the other players for comic effect (the origin of "slapstick" comedy). Burlesque performers often create elaborate sets with lush, colourful costumes, mood-appropriate music and dramatic lighting. Burlesque is a style of entertainment that encompasses pastiche, parody and wit.
