The New Burlesque (extract from text by Denis Curti)

First of all Betty. Then Tigger. Then Fingers, Dorothy Eden, Vicky, and a thousand others. All beautiful. All incredibly true."How was born the project?" we ask.. Thanks to Rockabilly friends who introduced me into the world of burlesque. What interested me was to have a direct contact and 'privileged' with the performers. I wanted to portray the truth, before their show, trying to grasp the truth and not recreate it. I had to make me accept, otherwise I could not to stay in the backstage while the girls wore make-up or wore dressed or undressed for the various shows. All these pictures were taken just few minutes before, to go up on the stage. Unlike the strippers, who dance in striptease clubs to earn a living, the burlesque dancer spends more money on costumes, rehearsals, accessories than what she gains for her performance. Caesar thus provides a true and its archive of feelings. The 20 photographs on display are the harmonious development of a thought: the seduction resembles to staging, and then the photograph is the only language that can lead to this synthesis.
