Fruit Basket Presents: IGNITE! Drag Weekend Intensive

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a drag king or drag queen? Have you ever wanted to dress up as a different gender, but didn’t have all the skills? Would you like to create a drag or gender performance with the help of a talented drag queen or king?

...Fruit Basket brings you a second, equally amazing, drag and gender performance workshop! This weekend intensive is for youth aged 13-24 of any gender or sexual orientation, and is 100% free.

Saturday will focus on drag history, dressing and make-up techniques, as well as how to create and develop a performance. The day will be divided into two parts - people of any gender are encouraged to attend both! The first half will be on Drag Queening with Cameron Mackenzie (Isolde N. Barron) - and will include a live makeup demonstration! The second half on Drag Kinging will be led by Paige Frewer (Ponyboy).

On Sunday we will warm up by playing some theatre games, then work together to create an original gender performance piece! A lunch of sushi and pizza will be provided.
