Kleine Nachtrevue is an intimate, erotic, dark, and decadent German cabaret. Shows consist of short song or dance numbers sprinkled with playful nudity and whimsical costumes.
From the 1600’s, burlesque shows have provided a variety of entertainment around the globe. This image emphasizes the alluring, sexually exciting, and tantalizing performance of a burlesque dancer.
