Holy heck, the first Torture Garden in Berlin was amazing!
It was held at the breathtaking, legendary, just re-opened Art Deco palais The Metropol. The performers were fantastic. Above, Bertoulle Beaurebec, The Pain Proof Priestess. She is incredible. More drawings of her to come! Ms. Beaurebec is wearing a headpiece created by my friend Sylva Hattington of Bubbles and Frown. Sylva did simply unbelievable costumery for the performance. I wore one of her creations too and I have never gotten so many compliments!
I got to draw fantastic multi-talented Marie Devilreux!
I have been wanting to draw her for absolutely ages! Her Instagram handle is Dressed to Kill You, which never fails to delight my 80s De Palma heart.
Another drawing of Marie Devilreux, in her flying moon hoop!
I have to admit that this is only a rough approximation of the costume she was wearing, but I tried to capture the sense of what a sparkling lovely being she is and I think that comes through!
An elegiac exorcism and rebirth by Gina Harrison.
The stage was covered with earth and she emerged from – well, actually I’m not gonna spoil it, in case she performs it somewhere else! You can follow Ms. Harrison here, I highly recommend it! Louis Fleischauer is the performer with her.
Berlin’s radiant queen Martini Cherry was a featured performer too!
Love to see her light up a stage.
Devinity Berlin performed with fire wearing AMF Corsets.
It took me several years to finish this one!
I had such a thrilling time. Thanks so much to Torture Garden Berlin for the press pass and access, to my Patrons on Patreon, and to my dear friend Sadie Lune for moral support!
