Since exploding onto the New York underground scene in the late '70s, Beth B has been breaking boundaries with her controversial films and art installations. "Exposed," profiles eight cutting-edge burlesque stars who use their naked bodies as canvas for their art, melding politics, satire and physical comedy to challenge our notions of gender identity, disability, and sexuality. "Exposed" celebrates a culturally significant breed of new artists who have transformed traditional burlesque into a new millennium blend of comic entertainment and performance art. Beth B takes us behind the scenes so we get to know these performers as people and understand what prompted them to strip off their clothes and expose the contradictions inherent in our society’s taboos. Through them, we get to examine our own inhibitions and join their tribe.
