Dr Sketchy’s 2015 season launch with Honey B Goode

Dearest art monkeys,

I hope 2015 is already brimming with potential and success, we here at Dr Sketchy’s are as passionate as ever to reignite or just keep on stokin’ your creative fires.

We believe in drawing, we believe that just because we grew up doesn’t mean we should stop having fun with pencils and paper as often as possible.

I bet some of you sit in front of a piano, or even pick up a guitar, ukelele or even a recorder sometimes. Me, I play the triangle. How bout just picking up a pencil and making a picture though?
Drawing helps us to think, feel good and have fun. It can be tough to sit alone and think up something to just draw (excluding your day job doodling!) so Dr Sketchy’s works at bringing together the wonderful talent that our great city has to put them smack in front of you – you’re very own Monthly Melbourne Muses!

I’m very excited to announce that our muse to herald the start of our 2015 season is the hilarious heartbreaker, Honey B Goode.

It’s our 2015 season launch!

We’re back and fired up to bring you the very loveliest, funniest, charming and most talented performers Melbourne’s shiney dirty underground has to offer. We blast into 2015 with the hilarious heartbreaker, Honey B. Goode.

Known as the queen of quirk, Honey has forged a reputation as an original, charismatic and surprising performer. Synthesising her training in modern and classical dance, physical theatre and the dramatic arts, this chameleon-like ecdysiast delights in pushing the boundaries of burlesque. With performances ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, this dazzling dame only asks that you expect the unexpected.

 

Be good, and if you can’t be good
Be good at being bad like
Every girl should, honey be good

Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School and the sideshow scallywag..

I remember when I turned 8, there were balloons, pin the tail on the donkey and jelly-filled orange wedges. I wondered how I could top something as awesome as that birthday party for Dr Sketchy’s 8th birthday..

I think we did! A giant blackboard, blindfolding and spinning people till they fell over (sorry Harrison Chua!), cupcakes and cocktail giveaways, and a gorgeous guest of honor, Tanzer who serenaded and posed for us all afternoon.
Thank you to all who came to party, continue to share your sketches here and over at Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Melbourne

And now! We get ready to announce our next session on SUNDAY JULY 27th!

Be prepared to wiggle and squirm as Little Laa Laa the tap-dancing clown and side-show scallywag brings her curious talents to the Dr Sketchy stage.

Little Laa Laa is a red-headed ragamuffin who serves up a perplexing platter indeed. Blending acts of absurdity with feats of death-defying lunacy,  mind-boggling buffoonery and a wee little splash of salacious scalwaggery. You will squeal and squirm as this mischievous little mime
and her delightfully dark, vaudevillian antics play out in front of your very eyes.

Little Laa Laa is tap-dancing clown and side-show scallywag, Gemma Lark.  Born the bastard son of an alchemist and spent the first 10 years of her life surviving on a diet of split peas and cigarettes.  At the age of 14 she was married to a travelling salesman who kept her in the glove box of his 1967 Ford Falcon, though when she failed to produce him with an heir he sold her to a troupe of wandering minstrels for the price of four bags of oats and an arthritic goat. She considered this to be a reasonable exchange.By the age of 16 Lark had developed a nervous twitch, a whiskey dependency and an impressive collection of facial scars. By 20 she had lost touch with reality entirely and by 25 she was shamelessly lying in her biographies.


Harxest 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”.

Don’t forget your sketch pad and pencils!

Lux St Sin Sunday 25 September

This September 25th  we present, Chase The Dragon with Lux St Sin

with a whisper of danger from cherry red lips comes the treacherous bombshell Lux St Sin.  Evoking the spirit of vaudeville and old time glamour mixed with film noir and a splash of exotica.   Lux will make you ache and your sorry heart break with her sinful themes, smoldering seduction and coquettish playfulness.

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
