From the very first show, there was one Burlexe burlesque monologue that seemed to make a real impact with audiences, inspired and performed by the wonderful burlesque dancer, Luna Rosa,. We like to think some of the words ring true.

Burlexe Show Burlesque Monologue

It’s fitting that this is one of the monologues we’ve shared with you…

Originally, Luna Rosa entered to Julie London’s Come On-A My House in a sheer gown, subtly speaking these words until she was naked….

Look at me. Look at me.

All my imperfections are perfect. All my perfections exquisite. Every hair, every blemish where God intended. I’ve highlighted the best, elaborated the different. I am beautiful.

Look at me.

See how I move – I am liquid gold. Every gyration is unique. Every look somone’s fantasy. It’s only for a second so make the most of it. I am.

I have no story. Nothing to keep quiet or shout about. I got on stage because I wanted to see how it felt.

And it felt. Adrenaline, nerves, butterflies… Everytime. I feel my heartbeat and I know I’m alive.

You’ll never really understand unless you’ve danced naked and felt adoring eyes all over you from head to toe. My vulnerability is my power.

I am here because I am me.

I am here because I’m free.

We’ve since worked with a number of performers, both professional and amateur to recreate this monologue for everyone’s enjoyment.

Sample with…

– Toyin and Louise who are burlesque performers from City Academy
– the founder of the London Academy of Burlesque; Jo King aka. Goodtime Mama Jojo
– the star of Naked Girls Reading London, Miss Glory Pearl
– British showgirl and pianist (sometimes both at the same time), Chrys Columbine
– the lovely and luscious, Velvet Jones
– and Burlesque superstar, Sukki Singapora

Burlexe is the ‘Vagina Monologues’ of Burlesque: a brand new theatrical show based on the stories of the incredible women who’ve created burlesque, old and new. It fuses performance with storytelling, dancing with acting.

It’s about strong, powerful, amazing women. And it’s like nothing you’ve seen before…
