Résumé :
Burlesque in theatre history came to broadly denote exaggerated comic exchanges and female performers in stylised costumes that revealed the body. Female burlesque practices included cross-dressing in male clothing and were intended to be covertly sexually titillating. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, when body flesh is on show everywhere, it is interesting to find that burlesque remains popular. But then, female burlesque was never simply an exhibition of flesh, even in the circus. [author summary]
