The Wives of Henry VIII with reigning Queen of Burlesque, Strawberry Siren

Part art, part cabaret, all fun.  Melbourne’s original burlesque life drawing event.

This month we lay out the red carpet and sound the trumpets for Australia’s reigning Queen of burlesque, The Strawberry Siren. The Strawberry Siren has been dazzling Burlesque audiences worldwide for the last 6 years drawing on her 18 year background in Circus, Theatre and Dance to provide a fresh and fancy take on Burlesque that she’s dubbed Cirlesque.

Not only a Burlesque Queen Downunder, Strawberry has recently been setting the northern hemisphere on fire, sizzling and scorching her way through the London BurlesqueFest, Los Angeles, Kansas, Vancouver and New Orleans Burlesque Festivals!

“The Strawberry Siren is the Tarantino of Burlesque…. Sexy and dangerous!”

King Henry the Eighth,
to six wives he was wedded.
One died, one survived,
two divorced, two beheaded.

Queen Strawberry will be paying homage to the Wives of King VIII with the most spectauclar of tudor inspired outfits.  Join us as we kill off these woman with our mighty pencils!

Before Frida departs on her grand adventure, she’ll be bringing her beer-swilling shenanigans to Dr Sketchy’s for your viewing and drawing pleasure.

Blasts Off!! back to The Atomic Age with Lola Ramone

This month we travel to Venus, the planet named after the goddess of love and beauty where we find our muse, Lola Ramone!  Lola is a Melbourne based performer who has carried her love of the brashness and beauty of Americana and Atomic Age into a brand of burlesque that is at once gaudy, gorgeous and playfully perverse.

Glamazon Miss Jane and Tribal Dirt

Miss Jane left the West Coast of Australia and super burlesque troupe, Sugar Blue behind for the thriving performance scene we have here in Melbourne.

Miss Jane’s passion for reggaeton, samba, and gogo has shaped her into the truly unique performer we now have amongst us East Coasters!

An exoctic and prevocative beauty, a sultry glamazon, a gogo goddess, Miss Jane is equal parts spicy vamp and sugary sweet.

Miss Jane brings us her routine Tribal Dirt and wants us all to catch her Jungle Fever!

Sunday June 30th 3.30pm at The Toff in TownBook here

Lux St. Sin brings Fire & Ice

“Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice”

nice words Robert Frost, thanks.

And yes, Lux St Sin will be both your desire and destruction! As Fire & Ice you may just perish twice…
but what a way to go!

Mark the date, Sunday May 26, come sketch with us.
Don’t go hot and cold on us, commit to drawing, babes and fun – see you there!
