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!

Enter, Salome – The Red Goddess

Witness the epitome of dangerous female seductiveness,
with her iconic Dance of the Seven Veils.
Immortalised by Oscar Wilde, and made memorable in Richard Strauss’s Opera.

“No longer was she merely the dancing-girl who extorts a cry of lust and concupiscence from an old man by the lascivious contortions of her body;
who breaks the will,  masters the mind of a King by the spectacle of her quivering bosoms,  heaving belly and tossing thighs;

she was now revealed in a sense as the symbolic incarnation of world-old Vice,
the goddess of immortal Hysteria,
the Curse of Beauty supreme above all other beauties by the cataleptic spasm that stirs her flesh and steels her muscles,
– a monstrous Beast of the Apocalypse, indifferent, irresponsible, insensible, poisoning”
– Huysmans À rebours – Toni Bentley (2002) Sisters of Salome: 24

Kerryx is a smouldering and sultry bombshell waiting to be uncovered (literally!).

Join Kerryx as she takes you on a journey through the darker side of seduction.
With inspirations ranging from belly dance through to both classic and neo burlesque, she is known for her breath-taking performances with a touch of gothic enchantment.

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”

DJ Knave Knixx spins the tunes to keep things funky throughout the evening and of course, The Toff has one of Melbourne best stocked bars to keep your creative spirits well lubricated!

Rosy Rabbit returns to the stage in a galactic way!

After almost a year the stars have aligned at just the right time for the return of Rosy Rabbit with her tribute to  Barbarella… Forces of evil beware!

The year is 2040.
The Age of Man is over. The Machines are here.

Rosy Rabbit returns to the stage with a blast off performance at Dr Sketchy’s this August.

This is a PREMIERE NEVER SEEN PERFORMANCE.

—————————————————————————————-
Rosy Rabbit will then be performing this outta sight number as part of:

METROPOLIS 2040
In this brave new world, mechanical forces have overwhelmed the human race. Cyborgs, futurists, blade-runners and unseen computer bodies rule the cities. Communications with extra-terrestrial forms of life have succeeded. Humans, declared extinct by their computerised counterparts, have all become but a distant dream.

The world has descended into a sensual mash-up of hedonistic pursuit and robot love. With cameras on every corner, televisions on every street and computers in every room, Big Brother LIKES watching you, baby. And in an old, dark theatre at Red Bennies, space girls, robots and human hybrids are planning the greatest voyeuristic exploration this side of the millennium.

Metropolis 2040 is … 1984 meets Daft Punk.
Metropolis 2040 is … Fritz Lang meets Barbarella.

With performances from:

Extra-terrestrial tassle twirler … LA VIOLA VIXEN (QLD)

The angle-grinding live wire… SPARKARELLA

The modern-day Barbarella … ROSY RABBIT

Space-age aerial from the deadly… SKOPALOVA

The exotic and erotic… FRANKIE VALENTINE

Whether you’re an artstar or a scribbling newbie, Dr. Sketchys is the perfect place to get your fill of drawing fun.

Mikelangelo and St Clare transport us to another world, Sunday 31st July

Last month Dr Sketchy’s celebrated 5 years of sketching entertainment.  Confirming our place as the world’s premier alternative life drawing movement with a tribute to US artist,  Sylvia Ji at Australia’s original alternative gallery,  Outre Gallery!

The session summed up by Harxest Mag “a room full of friendly people, an appreciation for art, beautiful models, unreal costumes and a truck load of fun times.”

So how on earth do we follow up a session like that?

Simple.

We upscale Dr Sketchy’s to ensure that you guys are guaranteed to have a great few hours of fun and sketching.

How.

Curtin House in Melbourne’s CBD has become a hub for literature, film and drinks.  It’s second floor bar,
The Toff in Town is a premier boutique performance space including a dedicated bar and dining area.

Dr Sketchy’s has joined forces with The Toff in Town to bring Melbourne a new era of
Dr Sketchy’s drawing entertainment.

Over 5 years we have hosted a veritable smorgasbord of beautiful, creative, passionate and sincere performers.  Each session has had its own life because of these people.

It is with upmost excitement that we bring you not one, but two incredibly talented and astonishingly handsome performers to celebrate this inaugural session at The Toff in Town in the historic Curtain House.


Internationally acclaimed and immaculately dressed, Mikelangelo.  Part-ringmaster, part-crooner, part-beast possessed. Mikelangelo has toured the world starring in the Olivier award-winning La Clique and with Kaberet Noir Band Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen.


Saint Clare has a growing reputation nationally and internationally as a self styled singer, dancer and model. As described by the press St Clare is ‘ridiculously glamorous’, ‘a melodious and enchanting songbird’, ‘mysterious and mesmeric’.

Together Mikelangelo and Saint Clare create music that evokes an era of
sultry sophistication, another world and another time.

Mikelangelo and St Clare will be performing a selection of songs at this special session.
