As the vintage trend continues to galvanise, burlesque is flourishing and it’s high-time for you to join in the cheeky fun. Hostelworld and many hostels in Rome are coming together to support the 2nd Annual Caput Mundi International Burlesque Award. So gather your feathers, pasties and anything that sparkles, next weekend you will be seduced, charmed and teased.
Caput Mundi is a burlesque festival bedazzling audiences on the 17th and 18th of October at Teatro Centrale Rome for the second consecutive year. (Psss, The Yellow will be hosting the all-day after party on the 19th!) Lots of saucy dates to remember.
Stars will be hailing from New York City, Rome, Berlin, Geneva, Paris, and Vienna to just name a few. Artists coming together from around the world to perform, learn and celebrate the art of burlesque. They will celebrate, but also judge. An international jury has been selected from well-known burlesque personalities:
Medianoche is an award-winning artist and has had international appraisal as she was crowned Queen of Burlesque in New Orleans, won the coveted Crystal Corset Award in the Pennsylvania Burlesque Festival, and was featured for the third year in a row in 21st Century Burlesque‘s list of Top 50 Burlesque Performers worldwide.
Bella Blue, the director of The New Orleans School of Burlesque, and famous across America will share her
Fez Wrecker has a strong music background and may be better known for his part in the Fuzztones but currently well-known as a professional entertainer of a vaudevillian variety in Berlin.
Hostelworld is giving one lucky winner the chance to stay at The Yellow for the festival. You and a friend could receive €200 for travel expenses, two tickets to the 2nd Annual Caput Mundi International Burlesque Award. All you have to do is answer three questions before October 12th, just go here and take a swing.
The Yellow, a sponsor and a longstanding burlesque advocate, will be hosting artists, (and maybe you) during the festival and celebrating the end with an all day after-party, kicking off with a recovery brunch from midday. There will be workshops with burlesque stars, Bella Blu and Medianoche - don’t forget to stretch. Camera Club with renowned photographer Mirta Lispi, who will capture the prestigious beauties as they arrive for the awards.
