Hamburg Burlesque Festival 2019
Inspired by Hamburg’s decadent and freedom-loving character, burlesque icon Marlene von Steenvag and the 1920s-event expert Else Edelstahl invite the world’s best burlesque acts for 4 roaring days at the Hamburg Burlesque Festival.
We are celebrating the opening of the festival in ‘The Opium Den’ , where both the more adventurous businessmen and sailors, as well as Hamburg’s major citizens and lost souls, got high around the turn of the century. Hidden, wicked, seductive – in the noble baroque vault of the Prinzenbar we open the games with a wild party – like an opium noise! Be curious! This is followed by the ‘The Dark Circus’ at the Grünspan on Friday: Spectacular, bizarre and witty, the bursting Neo-Burlesque scene is celebrated at the highest level. Boylesque, fireplay, acrobatics and the gloomy side of this art is shown here in its most odd and fascinating facet. A circus of the senses. If you love Neo-Burlesque from its most impressive side, do not miss this night!
