Revealing Venus: The Spectacle of the Black Female Body (Re)Made Spectacular through the Black Female Neo-Burlesque Performer

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Frequently linked to riot-grrrl post-feminism and sex-positivity, neo-burlesque is considered a re-appropriation of the ‘classic art of striptease,’ allowing women to control and perform their sexuality. Through critical theories of the black female body as abject spectacle, this paper uses three case-studies of black neo-burlesque performers to explore how their performance manipulates and intervenes in dominant discourses around black female sexuality. These performances represent a radical black female sexual subjectivity that does not simply reverse established hierarchies, but instead demand a new disorder by rejecting both the dominant narrative of sexual objectification and the counter-narrative of bourgeoisie respectability.
