‘Burlas’ is a documentary that forms a discussion of what it can be to perform. Three performers share their perspective on the comedic and erotic elements that can make up a burlesque show as well as their personal relationship with the stage. The ten minute film touches upon the subtle differences between a theatrical performance and the strip club environment as well as giving us a brief insight in to how these three performers may go about tailoring their act and the motivations for wanting to be apart of the reemerging burlesque dance and comedy style.
