Event: -
The very first convention of its kind to educate and inspire
Congress on Undress is Australia's very own Burlesque Educational Weekend! Held from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th November 2017, Congress on Undress aims to educate, inspire and titillate attendees with a jam-packed weekend of classes, social events and performance showcases. Tickets are now on sale!

Held in Sydney, with workshops and events centred around the CBD fringe and Inner City, Congress on Undress invites performers of all experience levels to come together to share their knowledge and expand their craft.

Over 2 years in the making, Sydney Performer and Producer, Danica Lee, has put her decade of experience to work and created an extraordinary celebration of the Australian Burlesque Community for all the enjoy. "After the revival wave of New Burlesque in mid-2000, Australia has seen its burlesque contingency grow from just a few dozen niche performers to a thriving community of thousands. So why not harness that amazing hive of creativity and gather us all together to learn and celebrate everything that makes Australian burlesque so unique?"

So many of us make the trek overseas to attend international events and festivals, often spending thousands of dollars just to be given the opportunity to spend time with and learn from other performers. So I thought – why can't we do that here? Why do we have to spend two days in a flying tin can just to expand our craft?" asks Lee.

It was from this question that The Congress on Undress was born. Lee has spent over a year gathering information and researching what her peers would want to see as a part of the weekend. The result is a spectacular event which caters to all levels of experience - whether you are just curious about burlesque, or have been strutting the stages for decades!

The event kicks off on Friday 17th November with an Opening Night Showcase 'Best Undressed', followed by a weekend of over 30 interactive classes and workshops on the Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November 2017. It's not all serious though! Saturday night sees Congress on Undress going back to school with a School Night Social featuring entertainment by Bitch Stole My Act. The Busties (Australian Burlesque Community Awards) will close the event with a bang on Sunday 19th November 2017.
