Babes of Burlesque: 39
MARLENE VON STEENVAG
One of the world’s great fan dancers, Germany’s Marlene Von Steenvag often evokes the high, theatrical glamour of the Moulin Rouge or Las Vegas. Her costumes are showy and elaborate, but she also has a naughty side, exploring the realm of fetishes. In this act, which she calls “Pan’s Dream,” she fashions an entirely fresh fantasy world. The video was shot in Vienna at the Cirque Rouge No. 10, in January 2011.
Having singled out her fan dances, we would be remiss not to present one of them. Here, she works the fans, and her fans, in a segment from her larger show “Bird of Paradise,” staged in late 2011 in Berlin.
