Eve La Plume The Italian Diva of Burlesque

Burlesque is a literary, dramatic or musical work intended to cause laughter by caricaturing the manner or spirit of serious works, or by ludicrous treatment of their subjects. The word derives from the Italian burlesco, which itself derives from the Italian burla – a joke, ridicule or mockery. – From Wikipedia

We cannot say that we knew much about burlesque a year ago. Even today we are just breaking the tip of the iceberg. While some of our fans our avid fans of burlesque, we really never gave it much thought. That was before we became acquainted with Libero Api and his wonderful photographs.

Libero is a photographer living in Italy and we have had the pleasure of posting many of his photos. While we have never seen a burlesque show live and in person. I must say that Libero’s photos bring to life that which we have not yet seen. When we do go our expectations will be set high because of the vivid photography of Libero.

The Italians take their Burlesque very serious. It is a true art form there when performed. It is on mainstream television in Italy, and does not carry the negative connotations that some parts of the world may think of it.From the music, the dancing, the hand made costumes that take you back to a more luxurious era, and the themes that seem like mini operas, Italian burlesque is at the top.

One girl who seems to be at the top of the burlesque scene in Italy is Eve La Plume.  Writer Alexander Caesar of Messaggerro Veneto has this to say about Eve;

Exceptional in gestures and facial expressions, Eve La Plume is capable of undressing with sensuality and irony, but without ever falling into vulgarity. A high-level performance, with the diva, in many of her poses, reminiscent of the female faces immortalized by Gustav Klimt.

Eve La Plume fills the scene, confirming one of the most important Italian actresses of burlesque, with its subtle eroticism, topped off with verve, humor, and above all style and elegance. – Alexander Caesar

Judging by the comments and Libero’s photos, when we do go to our first burlesque show it will be to see Eve La Plume. Do you think she can cook too?
