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!

Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art Schools has been a boon to the art scene since its inception, promoting creativity and
community in every city that runs one. Providing a space for people to draw the flourishing alternative scenes that might otherwise be inaccessible to the lone artist, presenting hilarious and exciting performers as your unique muses.

Dr. Sketchy’s is for everyone, no previous artistic ability required. The world’s premier alternative drawing movement. 

Harzest Mag describes the event as “a room full of friendly people, an appreciation for art, beautiful models, unreal costumes and a truck load of fun times”.

Pregnant Virgins, Rock Stars, Acrobats and Mirror Tents..

Have you seen all the wonderful sessions and Sketchy action that’s been happening in 2013?

If you’ve been with us you’ll know how jam packed we’ve been with a variety of exceptional personalities and performers across 2 very special locations.

2 sessions down at The Famous Spiegeltent with Polish based acrobat duo The Caesar Twins, and just last week a moving, warm fuzzy session with half of the incredible quartet of acrobats that is CASUS.

Follow the links to see albums of both events

We launched our 2013 season at our home THE TOFF IN TOWN with YOU AM I frontman, Tim Rogers.  For those that missed it… you’re loss.  A session that will never be matched – intimate, raw, visceral, private.
If you were then it’s a memory to keep and hopefully your renderings of Tim captured the man whilst he waxed poetic on the life of a rock star.

Stay tuned for the next performer announcement for our session Sunday March 31t at The Toff in Town
