Express Yourself

I went to see The Chantilly Belles film as part of The Lowry's 'Express Yourself' exhibition last week. The show is brilliant and ticks all the boxes of bringing you a family show about all forms of dance, which is one of the reasons I am so pleased with how our film fits in so well! It has always been one of mine and Rene's goals to show burlesque as a true art form that doesn't rely on stripping to make an impression. Although burlesque will always be associated with the risque and avant guarde (as it quite rightly should) it can also be a fun way to explore character, roles and narrative.

Don't miss your chance to see this excellant exhibition and take to the floor for a shimmy yourself!
'Express Yourself' runs at The Lowry until Sunday 27th September and is free! Galleries Open: Sun - Fri 11am; Sat 10am. Close: Closing times daily 5pm.
