The opening Gala of a weekend long event called
Professor Jo Boobs & Torchy?s Traveling Charm School,
?The Art of Burlesque? will include several different
layers of creative Burlesque performance and
presentation. This series is designed to encourage
self confidence and a sense of sexy fun in Atlantans
in a healthy and creative environment by giving them
an insiders look at what the Burlesque Revival is and
why Burlesquers do what they do.

Friday night festivities at Eyedrum start with the 2-D
focus of the event, a series of fascinating
photographs of Burlesque artists of the current
Neo-Burlesque Revival, both on stage and off, by
performer, teacher and historian of Burlesque Jo
?Boobs? Weldon from NYC. Also presented will be works
on Burlesque by local photographer Justin Houser and a
rare collection from the Photography Center of Atlanta
of vintage entertainers who were photographed there in
the 50s and 60s. In addition, look for an interactive
installation discussing the juxtaposition between the
psychological levity of latex and the extraordinary
weight of bridal wear.

The event will also include presentations by Jo
?Boobs? and Torchy of their lively ?lectures? on the
history of Burlesque, gender roles in Burlesque and
art and other related topics, accompanied by
demonstrations by Jo, Torchy and several highly
accomplished southern performers including Panty Raid
of Nashville TN. Entertaining as well as enlightening
with the idea of Burlesque as an art form in mind.

Orchestra.
