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.

4:00 - 5:20pm Drag Queening
5:20 - 5:45 pm Break, Snack Time
5:45 - 7:15 Drag Kinging

12:30 - 4:30 Performance Skills and Act Creation

The space is at ground level, and has a ramp at the door for easy access. The room is large with seating available. The bathroom is quite small and could be hard to navigate - however, next door at The Cultch there are accessible washrooms. Please contact Fruit Basket for more information.
