1. Striptease – A striptease is an erotic or exotic dance in which the performer gradually undresses, either partly or completely, in a seductive and sexually suggestive manner. The person who performs a striptease is commonly known as a stripper or exotic dancer. In Western countries, the venues where stripteases are performed on a regular basis are now usually called strip clubs, though they may be performed in such as pubs, theaters. At times, a stripper may be hired to perform at a bachelor or bachelorette party, in addition to providing adult entertainment, stripping can be a form of sexual play between partners. Striptease involves a slow, sensuous undressing, the emphasis is on the act of undressing along with sexually suggestive movement, rather than the state of being undressed. In the past, the performance often finished as soon as the undressing was finished, the costume the stripper wears before disrobing can form part of the act. In some cases, audience interaction can form part of the act, with audience urging the stripper to remove more clothing, Striptease and public nudity have been subject to legal and cultural prohibitions and other aesthetic considerations and taboos. Restrictions on venues may be through venue licensing requirements and constraints and these laws vary considerably around the world, and even between different parts of the same country. H. L. Gypsy Rose Lee, one of the most famous artists of all time. The origins of striptease as a performance art are disputed and various dates, the term striptease was first recorded in 1932, though stripping, in the sense of women removing clothing to sexually excite men, seems to go back to at least the late 19th century. There is an aspect in the ancient Sumerian myth of the descent of the goddess Inanna into the Underworld. At each of the seven gates, she removed an article of clothing or a piece of jewelry, as long as she remained in hell, the earth was barren. Some believe this myth was embodied in the dance of the seven veils of Salome, however, although the Bible records Salomes dance, the first mention of her removing seven veils occurs in Oscar Wildes play of Salome, in 1893. In ancient Greece, the lawgiver Solon established several classes of prostitutes in the late 6th century BC, among these classes of prostitutes were the auletrides, female dancers, acrobats, and musicians, noted for dancing naked in an alluring fashion in front of audiences of men. In ancient Rome, dance featuring stripping was part of the entertainments at the Floralia and she was famous for her striptease performance of Leda and the Swan. From these accounts, it appears that the practice was hardly exceptional nor new and it was, however, actively opposed by the Christian Church, which succeeded in obtaining statutes banning it in the following century. The degree to which these statutes were subsequently enforced is, of course, what is certain is that no practice of the sort is reported in texts of the European Middle Ages. An early version of strip-tease became popular in England at the time of the Restoration, a strip tease was incorporated into the Restoration comedy The Rover, written by Aphra Behn in 1677

4. Gypsy (1962 film) – Gypsy is a 1962 musical comedy-drama film produced and directed by Mervyn LeRoy. The screenplay by Leonard Spigelgass is based on the book of the 1959 stage musical Gypsy, A Musical Fable by Arthur Laurents, stephen Sondheim wrote the lyrics for songs composed by Jule Styne. The film was remade for television in 1993, determined to make her young, blonde, and beautiful daughter June a vaudeville headliner, willful, resourceful, domineering stage mother Rose Hovick will stop at nothing to achieve her goal. Years pass, and the no longer are young enough to pull off the childlike personae their mother insists they continue to project. June rebels and elopes with Jerry, one of the dancers who backs the act, devastated by what she considers an act of betrayal, Rose pours all her energies into making a success of Louise, despite the young womans obvious lack of singing and dancing skills. Not helping matters is the popularity of sound films, which leads to a decline in the demand for stage entertainment. With bookings scarce, mother and daughter find themselves in Wichita, Kansas, when one of the strippers is arrested for shoplifting, Louise unwillingly becomes her replacement. At first her voice is shaky and her moves tentative at best and she blossoms as an entertainer billed as Gypsy Rose Lee, and eventually reaches a point where she tires of her mothers constant interference in both her life and wildly successful career. Louise confronts Rose and demands she leave her alone, in the DVD release of the film, both numbers – taken from a 16-millimeter print of inferior quality – are included as bonus features. Coincidentally, Russell had just starred in the version of the Leonard Spigelgass play A Majority of One at Warner Bros. Although Russell had starred and sung in the 1953 stage musical Wonderful Town and the 1955 film The Girl Rush and her own gravelly singing voice was artfully blended with that of contralto Lisa Kirk. Kirks ability to mimic Russells voice is showcased in the final number Roses Turn, kirks full vocal version was released on the original soundtrack, although it is not the version used in the finished film. In later years, Russells original tryout vocals were rediscovered on scratchy acetate discs, marni Nixon had dubbed Natalie Woods singing voice in West Side Story the previous year, but Wood did her own singing in Gypsy. While Wood recorded a version of Little Lamb for the soundtrack album. Other songs performed live were Mr. Goldstone, I Love You, Arthur Laurents book West Side Story, though largely craftsmanlike, falls short of his libretto for Gypsy, based on the memoirs of the transatlantic stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. The dialogue and situations in Gypsy have more wit, bite and emotional range, variety noted, There is a wonderfully funny sequence involving three nails-hard strippers which comes when Gypsy has been unreeling about an hour. Rosalind Russells performance as the smalltime brood-hen deserves commendation, go through the motions in a burlesque world that is prettied up in soft-focus and a kind of phony innocence. Any resemblance of the art of strip, and its setting, to reality is, in this film, produced on a budget of $4 million, the film grossed $11,076,923 at the box office, earning $6 million in US theatrical rentals

I always wonder how they manage to keep going and take such responsibility, so these different themes came together and I invented a story about a French TV producer and the women who were courageous enough to come to France with him. The narrative was written before any further research was made, as Amalric did not want the film to be too much like a documentary, the first time he saw a Neo-Burlesque show was in 2007, in Nantes. He says that he did not mention the project to the performers.

The troupe went on a tour along French port cities in order to provide the necessary footage. Hundreds of local extras performed as themselves as audiences, locations were used in Le Havre, La Rochelle, Nantes, Rochefort, and Paris.

At the press following the screening, Amalric talked about how excited the performers were about the festival.

The French theatrical premiere followed on 30 June through Le Pacte, on Tour had an attendance of 172,154 during the first week and thereby entered the French box office chart at number five.
