All That Glitters: Burlesque at the Beachland

When: Thu., Aug. 3 2017

Six years ago, Bella Sin, founder of the local burlesque troupe Le Femme Mystique, began hosting the Ohio Burlesque Festival, a three-day event at the Beachland Ballroom featuring regional, national and international talent. In conjunction with this year's festival, Space: ROCK Gallery, next to the Beachland, will host All That Glitters: Burlesque at the Beachland, an exhibit featuring photos from previous years' fests, taken by Eric Paul Owens, Anastasia Pantsios, Bob Perkoski and Scene staff photographer Emanuel Wallace. There will be two opening receptions — at 5:30 p.m. today, the first day of the festival, and at 5 p.m. tomorrow, during Walk All Over Waterloo. Expect to see photos of performers of all races, ethnicities, gender identities and body types, and acts that range from "elegant to comedic to acrobatic to bizarre to thought-provoking." (Niesel)
