Giorgia Conceição (aka Miss G), 2016

Giorgia Conceição (aka Miss G) developed the concept of “burla”, a Latin word extracted from the frame of the burlesque genre (the substantive burla generates the adjective burlesque). Burla presents itself as a strategy for the creation of the body which wants to heal from its scars, some of which are gender related, as well as those deriving from colonialism and stereotyping, giving visibility to powers and characteristics prevented from developing within the discourses of colonial and rationalist tradition.

Her art is about blurring the limits between contemporary live art and burlesque performance.

CV: Giorgia Conceição (aka Miss G) born in 1981 in Curitiba, Brazil. She holds a MA in performing arts from the Federal University of Bahia, Salvador, Brazil. She received three times grants from the Rumos Itaú Cultural Program (2010, 2012 and 2014), an international program for developing arts in São Paulo, Brazil.
