Why should I apply to Prague Burlesque Festival?
We’re an inspiring festival of variety arts and burlesque, that will take place in the Golden City of Prague 2018. A 100 years earlier, Prague used to be one of the richest and most cultural places in Europe, with the biggest film studios at the time, even topping Hollywood. The peak of this era also emerged vaudeville, cabaret and of course burlesque. Later, after years of suffering several occupations and political suppression, the Velvet Revolution brought attention back to Prague again. Sonny Vargas and Miss Cool Cat, are the producers of a non-competing burlesque happening, which will connect open minded individuals with respect to gender equality.
