WERNER HERZOG BURLESQUE
Presented by Miss Rose’s Sexploitation Follies
I believe in film. I believe in ecdysiast expression. I believe in Werner Herzog Burlesque. Crafted specifically for the second annual Cinedelphia Film Festival, Liberty Rose has moved ships over mountains to find the perfect cast of uncompromising burlesque artists for an evening of striptease sure to leave the audience with more than just an existential crisis.
Werner Herzog Burlesque brings an entirely new cast to the Sexploitation Follies stage, including Peekaboo Revue MC and local filmmaking legend Scott Johnston (a.k.a. Count Scotchula) as your guide to an evening of lurking truths and unbridled nudity. The show features NYC’s BB Heart as the titular NOSFERATU, Sexploitation Follies favorite Iris Explosion performing unfettered readings ala Herzog of classic children’s tales, D20 burlesque creator and nerdlesque queen Anja Keister will take you deep into a CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS, the suave and macabre Donald Dashing shall achieve his opera house no matter the cost as FITZCARRALDO, Philadelphia’s Badass of Burlesque Liberty Rose eats her shoe, and the whole evening concludes with a duet featuring Donald Dashing and Liberty Rose inspired by the controversial documentary GRIZZLY MAN.
Miss Rose’s Sexploitation Follies, director-based burlesque, incorporates memorable cult film characters, large scale set dressings and props, and handpicked performers. Liberty Rose brings fresh movie magic to each installment, finding new ways to push the envelope with every eclectic evening.
