Les Folies Napolitaines on the stage of the Bolivar Theater
It is inspired by the Parisian-era variety of the Les Folies Bergère theater and references the European traditions of music hall, variety and cabaret where the atmosphere was outrageous, exciting and funny all at the same time.
On the Bolivar Stage, directed by Nu’Tracks, returns”Les Foleys NeapolitanFrom the Burlesque Cabaret Naples Company, born in 2013 from the meeting between Floriana D’Ammora and Roberta della Volpe, also known as Fanny Damour and Roby Roger. The appointment is Friday, March 10, 2023 at 21.
Les Folies Napolitaines presents alternative performances in which each performer is the protagonist and brings his personal vision of eroticism to the stage, crossing the invisible line between stage and spectator. The common basis of the shows is striptease, where everyone can remove whatever they want, peek, and pull the audience into another era, into a dreamlike dimension made of feathers, glitter, sequins and early jazz. The essential feature of those who attend Les Folies is breaking the classic rules of being in the theatre. The fourth wall is broken, and interaction and dialogue with the audience is part of the show.

In the nineteenth century, in the United States of America and Great Britain, a burlesque was a show that made fun of the world, the customs and the amusements of the wealthy aristocracy and industrialists, to the amusement of the less well off classes. There was a plot, albeit a weak one. Songs, dance numbers and a lot of comedy. But, to keep the audience interested, the show’s proponents had no qualms about adding female nudity to the stage. The genre was extremely popular for more than half a century before it went through a period of oblivion. For about twenty years it was brought back into vogue and the international scene flourished again with artists from around the world participating and acting venues such as old theaters and small clubs. Naples seems to be the perfect city to host entertainment shows of European and American origin, but at the same time it has a strong connection with Neapolitan traditions, such as the Café Chantant, a local version of French cabaret shows, with a bawdy atmosphere. About seven years ago, the first burlesque academy was created in southern Italy with the aim of creating a burlesque scene with an international flavor in the city of Naples, and to present choral performances as happens in most major cities of the world. From the skilful work of these years, new artistic personalities and synergies arose that made it possible to realize events, workshops and performances with foreign artists, for example the first co-production of the European form Cabaret Bizarre, hosted in the evocative spaces of Naples underground in the Museo Under the earth.
