Japan: Risqué burlesque dancing comes to Osaka

The first-ever Japan Burlesque Festival took place at the cabaret house 'Beronica' in Osaka on Monday.

The festival encourages Japanese women to adorn themselves in the Japanese 1930s fashion and display their bodies through burlesque dance, an art form not traditionally practised in Japan.

Edward Fricker, the event organiser, said that Japanese women have recently found empowerment in the culture of burlesque, making this festival a possibility.

Performers Ryuki Amada and Rita Goldie expressed joy at being able to perform burlesque dancing in public, and that the audience was made up of mostly Japanese female viewers who are enjoying the performance.

In addition to Japanese performers, the event has attracted visiting dancers from the USA, Australia and France.
