KC GLAMOUR - BURLESQUE IN THE CITY OF FOUNTAINS is coming to the 2011 KC Fringe Festival!
My name is Russ Matthews and I love burlesque.
Okay, so I love a lot of things and photography is my talent and passion. But I do love burlesque and the performers who bring it to stages all over the world. Here in Kansas City, there is a groundswell of support for the neo-burlesque movement with troupes bringing shows to the fans of burlesque nearly every weekend. As a photographer here in Kansas City, I have been fortunate enough to capture our burly scene on "film" and would now like to present a selection of photographs at the 2011 KC Fringe Festival.
Because of space issues and the fact that I am sharing the Visual Arts venue with several different Kansas City artists, I have been forced to whittle my original show idea from about twenty photographs to five. Oh, but what a five they are! I have chosen the absolute best from my original show proposal to present at the KC Fringe Festival. And if all goes well and this Kickstarter is successful, I fully anticipate that I will be able to market this initial project into a full gallery show within the year!
I would like to thank all of the Kansas City burlesque troupes and performers who have supported me as I have supported them, particularly Bee's Knees Burlesque, Burlesque Downtown Underground, Kansas City Cabaret, the Kansas City Society of Burlesque, and Eartha Delights.
I hope you will choose to help me promote and explore the theme of KC Glamour this year at the KC Fringe Festival!
