The new burlesque as an example of double-simulacrum

This article deals with the phenomenon of the new burlesque in a double sense: as a simulacrum of gender and sexuality construction and as a simulacrum of local myths. It shows, according to the simulacrum approach of Jean Baudrillard, the current research on burlesque and an example of the international comparison of the burlesque scenes in New Orleans (USA), Berlin (Germany), and Warsaw (Poland). It poses the question of how the imaginings of gender roles, sexuality, and local “authenticity” are embodied in the new burlesque.
