The photographer Zora Jurenkova photographs BACKSTAGE worldwide at the big burlesque shows and created unforgettable portraits and atmospheric images of the great stars of the burlesque world. Even as a burlesque dancer „Miss Popalina“ and member of the first burlesque group in Germany „The Teaserettes“ active, she has a special approach to this scene with her photography. The shrill hustle and bustle behind the stage, the exuberance, the clumsy and the spontaneous captures Zora and lets us participate. In the boutique Bizarre, Zora shows a selection of the photographs that appeared in her book „Backstage Burlesque“.
In the years 2017 to 2019 we were together at the Hamburg Burlesque Festival – on the same mission. Capture these extraordinary and wonderful moments and portray the dancers. I prefer to draw live, but I also like to be inspired by photographs. Three of my works were based on motifs by Zora. The exhibition shows a juxtaposition of drawings/painting and photography and thus how a technique/medium produces a completely different representation.
