During an entertaining photo shoot, we talked with two of the ladies portrayed in Getting Naked :A Burlesque Story, to understand more about this art of performance. From two goddesses of burlesque, we get inside information, inquiring on the choice of the name, the many different kinds of existing burlesque performances and the reason why they were attracted to it in the first place.

Getting Naked: A Burlesque Story peels back the curtain to reveal the sexy sub-culture of the neo- burlesque scene in New York City. This vérité documentary intimately follows four performers, each of whom has discovered a newfound identity and belonging in a world of bawdy comedy and striptease. However, they find that all that glitters is not necessarily gold, as this liberating community does not insulate from the harsh realities of sexism, illness and existential crisis. Getting Naked explores what it means to be an artist, an entertainer, and a woman in the toughest city on Earth..
