Miss Burlesque Australia
Sunday, 03 February 2013 15:27
Currently in its 4th year, Miss Burlesque Australia is the first competition in Australia to combine all feature elements of Burlesque performance and personality to compete for a major prize and international title – a national competition that will see performers from all States compete for a prize pool worth over $20,000 AUD in money, prizes and sponsorship. State heats will be held, with all finalists heading to Melbourne for the Grand Finals, where the winner will be crowned Miss Burlesque Australia.

The title of Miss Burlesque Australia will be awarded to the best overall performer across a range of activities including Traditional, Neo and unique interpretation of Burlesque. The Miss Burlesque panel are also looking for a winner who will actively use her Title to promote a better community of Burlesque in Australia, and promote the community of Burlesque in Australia, internationally. Personality, performance, skill and presentation all form key parts of winning the competition.

For the competitors it is not only an opportunity to challenge themselves to create three show-stopping acts, but to network with performers and producers, and to make their contribution to a positive and supportive Burlesque community within Australia.

But for audiences it is an opportunity to see more feathers, sparkle, guts and glory than you can shake a Swarovski'ed pastie at. Each year the stakes get higher, as competitors strive to improve on their performances and presentation, becoming more inventive, creative and researching more thoroughly.

If the last three years are anything to go by, this years competition will be a nail-biter as each state has it's fair share of newcomers to seasoned professionals, and there's no guarantee of who will take out the title in each state.
