The
Montreal Burlesque Festival (the first here) wound down its 4-day run
this Sunday. I was curious to check out the documentary film
A
Wink and a Smile

at Cinema du Parc, but not much else as I am a big fan of
things-that-are-not burlesque. The film had its moments, and as a
documentary, it was pretty sex-positive and a cheeky look into the
mainstreaming of the scene as a whole. My friend,
Hour
sex columnist Laura Roberts

went to the all-star show on Saturday and I was dismayed to hear that
Montreal favourite low-brow troupe the
Dead
Doll Dancers
was
not invited. Laura seems to think it has something to do with the
fact that they are too low-brow. Anybody know what the deal is with
this?
