Coco is a short, poetic documentary capturing the essence of the Burlesque lifestyle and inviting the audience to glance inside an underground world of entertainment.
The documentary aims to get under the surface of the art form and challenge audience perceptions about flesh, beauty and empowerment. Coco/Vanessa’s story is re-lived by every aspect of the films own body as she contemplates ideas about perception and identity.
A short film of Coco Deville's clown routine. Shot at Cabaret! Cabaret! A resident night of Proud Brighton.

It has been a pleasure working with her.
