Livestreaming shows means I can be anywhere, anytime, if I have the strength.
As I mentioned in this post, I am choosing to limit what I can do according to my level of fatigue, and set goals that are realistic. That means not trying to draw everyone in a show. I dropped in on day 2 of the Disabilitease Festival (which should not be confused with the UK-based show with the same name Disabilitease, which I also drew!) with the intent to draw a couple performers.
I drew the Festival producer Minda Mae, above, doing a beautiful seated bellydance.
And I drew Skirt Vonnegut doing their Existentialism number, for the second time!
I drew Skirt severaltimeslast year during their tenure in Berlin, and they are a friend and serious collector of my work, so it was great to get a parallax view of this cool routine.
I also dropped in on “Burlesque at Home“, a great show I would have loved to have seen and drawn all of.
Above, New Orleans icon Miss Jay Broussard!
Aka, Jessica Champaign. What a legendary performance! Miss Jay was the finale.
Having to miss the Drag Syndrome show in Berlin last Fall was one of the times I felt most frustrated and saddened by my health problems. The group, described as “highly addictive drag queens & kings with Down-Syndrome”, looked so vivacious and happy! I so wanted to draw Horrora Shebang, above! And luckily I did get to, thanks to online shows!
I am so grateful there was a livestream show of these incredible divas this Spring!
Produced by CultureDevice and Queer House Party, the show featured multiple acts and costume changes from each performer. Above, the gorgeous Gaia Callas!
The most wonderful performers, the most charismatic stars!
Justin Bond has incredible moves!! Drag Syndrome and the Friends was one of the best drag shows I’ve ever seen. The House has fantastic dancers!
