Bow-Tie Beauties are carrying on the tradition of Burlesque in the Neo-Burlesque era with scintillating wit, skin, and a variety show of dance and comedy.

The show, set for 9 p.m. Friday at the Miners Foundry in Nevada City, will feature elaborate costumes adorned with glitter and sparkle. Each segment of the show is unique in a spacious yet intimate venue. A sultry spectacle will be peppered with a lively, bawdy MC and classically trained dancers to delight and surprise. Burlesque Uncensored will push boundaries.

Burlesque traveled to America in the 19th century, evolving in vaudevillian culture. Every decade has added their own twist based on the mores of the time, always poking fun at solemnity, including the established ideas of gender, body image and movement in a playful way.

Though based on the traditional Burlesque art, the new Neo-Burlesque form encompasses a wider range of performance styles. Neo-burlesque acts can range from anything from classic striptease to modern dance to theatrical and comedic interludes.

Burlesque Uncensored is a platform to showcase a variety of arts, from outrageous makeup and costume to vaudevillian comedy, to various forms of dance.

"The Bow-ties Beauties are a sassy group! They push the envelope in a unique, sultry, seriously sexy and sometimes hilarious way. I am honored and excited to be performing with them this month!" said Poppy Noir.
