For the past 9 years the new Burlesque scene in Berlin has been busy growing and transforming into the colorful international melting pot of talent it is today. Starting in 2006 with only two events (The Teaserettes and Wild Rose Revue) and a handful of performers. To the present day with over 15 events and 80 performers filling the capital city with glitter, glamour, and gore!
The Berlin Burlesque scene is proud to be known around the world for its strong sense of community. In celebration of this we have created The Berlin Burlesque Week as a platform to showcase the beautifully diverse array of Burlesque artists and events that Berlin has to offer.
All of the most influential Burlesque events in Berlin have come together to bring you 7 days of non-stop shows, parties and live entertainment. Each day will feature different events showcasing their unique style of Burlesque. You’ll see shows that include all the burlesque genres – Comedy, Classic Glamour, Circus Sideshow, Live Music, Life Drawing, Rock’n’Roll and much more!
The Berlin Burlesque Week strives to be an inclusive festival. We aim to book acts that honour various races, ethnicities, cultures, heritages, genders, ages, body types, abilities, classes, and sexualities. We will not consider applications that include acts that are culturally appropriative, harmful towards, or biased against marginalised groups in any way. We aim to make people happy not harmed!
We will round the week off with a bombastic climax as we all come together for a sensational Gala Spectacular. This event will feature a selection of the finest performers that took part in the Berlin Burlesque Week along with some international headlining superstars!
