Burlesque performance art beyond anything you’ve seen before. It’s satire. It’s parody. It’s an explosion of art and entertainment. Exposed delves deep into the heart of burlesque with a focus on eight female and male artists who use their nudity to transport us beyond sexual and social taboos. It’s powerful, enlightening, humourous, and it challenges traditional notions of body, gender, and sexuality.
