About the Movie
Glitter Tribe is a documentary feature about the passion and personalities at the heart of today’s new wave of burlesque. On stage and in candid conversation, twelve of today’s hottest performers reveal the naked truth about an exotic world where artifice is a route to authenticity and pretending to be someone else is the ultimate journey to become yourself. These burlesquers put it all on the line in performances that are sexy, funny, elegant and outrageous – and they bare more than just their bodies as they discuss their artistic vision, their financial struggles, the misconceptions that infuriate them and the community that sustains them.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: There's real talent here, whether in more traditional dance, breathing fire or creatively raunchy puppetry. Director Jon Manning explores the performance art beyond its titillating reputation.
Fascinating, Visually Beautiful Documentary
Beautiful film that honestly explores such a unique art! The costuming is gorgeous, the performers are inspiring.
