Diary Entry # 1

Setting out on this adventure into burlesque I believe I’ve hit a road bump early on.  Where do artists draw their inspiration from?  How do you truly create a character or persona fit for the burlesque stage?  For some reason I don’t think emotion and passion are enough.  I want to find an image or a presence that really represents my inner self, and one that also draws the attention of an audience.  Although I’m only starting out in Burlesque, from what I’ve read, the videos I’ve watched online and the performances I’ve seen I think there are some aspects of burlesque performance that are played out.  So, to not copy what has been done I guess it make sense to begin my search for something new by asking what hasn’t been done.  Cheers for the creative process!

Yours truly,

Lina
