Transvestites, girls bathing in tubs of beer, drunk actors and even more drunk visitors. One year has passed since I came to Asia to work as a dancer. The last few months, we perform in one Chinese club, which is more like a huge bar with a stage because the visitors do not dance. When I realized how many great things are going on around me the series “Behind the Scenes” was born.
This is the reverse, the invisible side of the club, the atmosphere, a part of which I became. At this behind the scenes, there is more burlesque than on the stage, the concentration of sexual fluids is more powerful than oxygen. There’s no falsehood – it’s not a scene, it’s their everyday life, our life, or rather mine.
