PlayMe Burlesque Poker Cards To Be Unveiled On September 13 In New York
PlayMe Burlesque is a photography exhibit on a deck of cards featuring 54 unique, glamorous & sexy performers from the World of Burlesque! Launches 9/13/11.
A passion project born to Malgorzata (Maggie) Saniewska, PlayMe Burlesque showcases today’s modern day American “New Burlesque” sex symbols in a style reminiscent of Alberto Vargas’ Pin-Up Girls of the 1940’s. Many of these new “pinups” will be performing at the event, including Jo “Boobs” Weldon, the Headmistress and Founder of the New York School of Burlesque; Dame CuchiFrita, formerly of Brown Girls Burlesque; Delysia La Chatte, founder of Witching Hour Burlesque; Medianoche, last seen in Dita Von Teese’s “Strip Strip Hooray”; Cheeky Lane, a 2010 graduate of the NY School Burlesque; Ms. Tickle, the "Mystical Mistress of Tease"; Gal Friday, “Miss Coney Island 2009”; Calamity Chang, “the Asian Sexsation”; Peekaboo Pointe, the “Fastest Tassel Twirler from East to West”; as well as the emcee, Honi Harlow. Also in the card deck of 54 are notables such as Dirty Martini, Julie Atlas Muz, Nasty Canasta, Gigi LaLaFemme, and Amber Ray.
Born and raised in Warsaw, Poland, Malgorzata moved to New York in 2003. She interned for Sante D'Orazio Studios, Milk Studio, assisted Dan & Corina Lecca during NYC's Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in 2008 and has done photography work for ID Models, BMG Models, and Q Models. After shooting for the Garo Sparo & Cobos Couture clothing lines, her work in photography transitioned into a full time commitment.
“PlayMe Burlesque” is a high quality, standard poker-sized playing card manufactured by the US Playing Cards Company®, the leaders in the field, and will be available on September 14th for $20 at Museum of Sex & online at http://playmeburlesque.com (now available for pre-order).

In 2008, Malgorzata (Maggie) Saniewska was introduced to the world of burlesque and as the art form moved from back alley, underground cabarets into mainstream film and entertainment, she became inspired to capture the beauty of it in her photography projects. She looked for a way to portray the performers in a way that would highlight each of their unique styles and individual interpretations of humor, sexuality, theatricality and grace. The PlayMe Burlesque cards give her the ability to feature many of the most talented burlesque performers in a photographic exhibit - all at one time.
