Pretençión is the place where Mystery sits at a table with Elegance, and Imagination orders a round of drinks before dinner. It is a world where those drinks are served by a pompous clown. Join Pinchbottom on a sensual quest for Pretençión, an imaginary yet sexy element that turns burlesque performers from “Jerkques” (ordinary people) into self-important “Cirques”: infuriatingly magical, unendurably spellbinding artistes who peel away the mundane with every layer of clothing. Step into the world of Pretençión — but be careful not to trip on the magic.
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Pinchbottom is where burlesque meets theater, buys it a drink, and takes it to bed.
Debuted at SpeigelWorld on The South Street Seaport in September 2008.
