Burlesque originally existed as a theatrical form based on comedy, and has only adopted its signature erotic tone over the last century. Today, it is risqué, decadent and entertaining, and Barcelona’s Burlesque Festival has become one of the top events of its kind since its inception six years ago. With its intimate proscenium-arch stage and seductive swathes of red, Poble Sec’s El Molino is the perfect setting to welcome a special troupe of performers for some naughty fun from June 1st-12th. Hosted by the glamorous Merche Mar, this year’s festival will be headlined by Italian sensation Miss Scarlett Martini, who has been ranked as one of the top burlesque performers in Europe, and also starred in the 2012 film, Burlesque Assassins. With raunchy routines and extravagant costumes guaranteed, indulge in an evening of seductive eroticism.
