Are you interested in being a Drag King, but don't know exactly how to start? Already doing drag and want to improve your drag king skills? Welcome to the Drag King Workshop! Get in touch with the art of drag, get a taste of it & go "typically male". We will bring your own Drag King character to life in a playful, informal and stylish way. Through our analysis of stereotypes, restyling, make-up, beard gluing, gesture and voice exercises, you will experience a different way of dealing with gender (social gender). The beard is in place, the hairstyle holds: Freshly styled, we're off to new shores - together we'll embark on a journey beyond gender boundaries.
Please bring your own clothes, shoes, accessories, something to fill out your trousers (e.g. socks) and something to tie up your breasts (e.g. binders, kinesiology tape, gauze bandages). If you like, you can also bring a make-up mirror and/or make-up utensils.
Meeting point: Klara, Clarastrasse 13
