This event has ended.

Burlesque is a popular performance that was born in the United States in the late 19th century when massive wave of immigration from Europe came to the country. In the country, where diverse cultural ethnicities came together, the Burlesque show, performed by female dancers with humor and satire, was lauded all over the country as an entertainment beyond the language. Paule Saviano, NY based photographer, stumbled upon Burlesque that still participates in the downtown, and started to take a portrait photography of the Burlesque dancers of today. What grabbed his attention was the characters and satire each performer brought on stage. Carefully selecting the shooting place and the situation for each performer, Saviano revealed their "persona" and completed portraits photography. In the exhibition of "Striptease Burlesque", Saviano's first exhibition in Tokyo, around 20 works will be introduced with the voice of their interviewed voice.
