Getting the bare facts out about burlesque

In relation to the feature 'The night I became a burlesque queen' (Irish Independent, June 15), I wish to clarify that I am not, nor ever will be, "totally naked" on stage. Burlesque is a widely misunderstood art, and a title frequently abused by other 'performers'. No burlesque performance ever involves total nudity.

We have been striving for many years to counteract this misconception about burlesque. Anyone wishing to learn more can attend the Dublin Burlesque Festival, which will run from September 23-25.
