LAC: Even before this film, you expressed an affinity for the art of burlesque.
CA: I honestly am a lover of any art form that allows a woman to express herself in a sensual way. It definitely has come up in my own performances. I think the female body is beautiful, and I love the art of the tease that burlesque offers. It’s very look-but-don’t-touch—and it is its own art form, knowing how to tease. I was always drawn to that sort of idea: the costumes, the glamour of it all, getting to dress up and experimenting with different hairstyles and makeup.
