The Velvet Hammer Burlesque has put the tease back into striptease. Based in
Los Angeles and founded by Michelle Carr, the infamous troupe kick-started the
current era of Neo-Burlesque and has caused a furore on stages worldwide. The
Velvet Hammer s shows are a potent cocktail that mixes elements from classical
American revues with a post-feminist punk rock attitude. Their intricately choreographed
and lovingly costumed performances have much more in common
with the tradition of Vaudeville than with the sleazy table dancing of today.
The book The Velvet Hammer Burlesque presents photographs of the group s
voluptuous ensemble of dancers and performers from their savvy on-stage acts
to a glimpse behind the curtain. Beautiful women of all shapes and sizes, most of
them don t correspond to today s generally accepted, often surgically enhanced
ideal. But they all radiate an authentic, raw energy in their routines that mesmerizes
the audience until (almost) the last shred of clothing is stripped away.
Every page of The Velvet Hammer Burlesque serves up true American beauty
consisting of shapely curves, tattoos, tassels and lace, and fuelled by a passion
for booze, smoke, rock n roll and the wilder side of life.
