Following the on-and-off stage antics of Trixie Little and The Evil Hate Monkey
Sunday, September 16, 2007
After our week of training, we went up to NYC for some shows. Miss Coney Island Beauty Pageant, The Murray Hill Show and Indian Larry's Memorial Bike Rally which involved tons of bikers, macaroni & cheese, pickles, and a dunk tank- guess who was the first one in the tank...
Welcome to Trixie Little's fan site celebrating the artistic pioneers of neo-burlesque!
BURLESQUE: "A humorous theatrical entertainment involving parody and sometimes grotesque exaggeration, often associated with a variety show in which striptease is the chief attraction."
INNOVATION: "Refers to a new way of doing something. It may refer to incremental and emergent or radical and revolutionary changes in thinking, products, processes, or organizations.
" GUILD: "An organization of persons with related interests, goals, etc. formed for mutual aid or protection."
The Burlesque Innovation Guild was conceived of in 2009 by veteran peformer Trixie Little and made public as a website in June 2010. BIG exists to honor the pioneering artists in neo-burlesque whose innovative, inventive, surprising, clever, weird, ambitious and ridiculous creativity is the future of our art. There is no application process, committee or competition. Just one woman's opinion. BIG is the name. For Little's opinion.
