✧ It’s All A DRAG! Showcase @ BRICKS & GLITTER FESTIVAL ✧
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
It’s All A DRAG! was a 10 week queer performance program that explored drag, burlesque, gender performance, presence, and play at SKETCH Working Arts‘s spring season from April 3rd to June 5th

Now the summers gone, and these Drag and Performing Artists are ready to showcase one more time as a family after being featured at; FSU: Youth Stage, Pride Toronto’s Fruitloopz Stage, Colour Me Now!, and other various venues!

Join host and drag-rent; Tygr Willy as they feature their drag children super stars:

✩ – DRAG – ✩
✦✦✦ Aliyah Spress (Julian Morello) – She’s cheap and cheerful, its Aliyah Spress!

✦✦✦ Anita Otter (Tristian Wells) – Bringing you Valium from out of this world!

✦✦✦ Bom Bae (Mudit Ganguly) – She’s beauty, she’s grace and she’s got a low credit score.

✦✦✦Clemmantine (苏翰) – Clemanntine is in her sweet sixteen (for a little long time) & is Pretty hillarious-ly dumb

✦✦✦ Samwise the Slutty (Sam Wise) – Shy and anxious yet desperate for attention, Samwise the Slutty is here to excite you in all the wrong ways.

✦✦✦Xelatonin (Alex Oleandro) – The callous and capricious chemical that makes you morbidly mental: the rough and jagged Xela Tonin.

✩ – PERFORMANCE – ✩
✦✦✦ Lallafral – With lines so fine they don’t just bend gender, they don’t even just break it, they slice and dice.

✦✦✦ Usman Khan – Our music icon – who strives to create a meaningful connection with people through his art, with a goal to have a positive impact on the world mainly through his creative lens.
