BURLESQUE ACTS

"Matryoshka"

Karina Libido's signature act is a Russian Folk Striptease: an accurate immitation of a traditional folklore dance with a very happy ending! Karina emerges on stage moving smoothly as a Russian doll "Matryoshka" wearing a kokoshnik (traditional headdress) and an embroided shawl. She then dances to balalaika and finishes twirling her tassels to the upbeat rhythms of "Kalinka", a Russian folklore classic.
 
Performed at Urbo for The Salon: Russian Old New Year 2016
