Saturday, 5th of March 2022 – 11am to 1pm – BALLROOM WORKSHOP - Sex Siren - with Bruna Revlon Phoenix
The beginnings of Ballroom lie in the underground, created and cultivated by QTPOC (Queer and Trans People Of Colour). What started as an empowerment movement for marginalized bodies, has ever since infected the whole world with its fever.
In a compact and intense crash course, dancer, performer and Mother Bruna Phoenix will show you the art of seduction in Ballroom, how to embody all the sexiness inside of you, how to express your sensuality and how to feel empowered in your body in every aspect of your life. In a world where sexual expression and liberation are still taboo, this workshop will be a safe space for you to express yourself and learn how to manifest your sexiness in accordance with your body, your gender identity, your sexuality and your individual personality.
The workshop is open to all ages and all genders, regardless of physical limitations or dance abilities. Instructions will be in French and/or English. Please come with comfortable clothes that make you feel extra sexy and confident - high heels are also very welcome if you feel at ease in them. And be prepared to move!
This workshop is completely for free. Max. number of participants: 20. Please register for the workshop in advance and send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Saturday, 5th of March 2022 – 3pm to 8pm – DIY DRAG GENDERFXCK WORKSHOP - with Valerie Reding
Whether you want to be a bearded sea monster, a glamorous alien from an unknown galaxy or simply create a character that defies all known gender binaries, performer and professional make-up artist Valerie Reding will help you bring your wildest fantasies to life - using makeup and simple everyday life materials.
With their performances as VulVenim - an asexy, seductive, poisonous, ever-transforming, gender-fucking witch from the Alps - as well as with their professional back-ground as a commercial makeup artist and with the experiences they gathered from creating the costumes and makeup for the personas featured in their photographic work, Valerie Reding will show you how to use makeup creatively to paint a face that will bring out your craziest and sparkliest selves and how to create a costume with simple, everyday materials.
The workshop will start with Valerie Reding creating one of their looks on model Moon. Following this, the participants will have time to create their own looks on themselves with the support of Valerie Reding.
The workshop is open to all genders and all ages - regardless of your makeup or costume-making skills. Instructions will be in English and/or French. Professional makeup and some basic costume materials will be put at your disposal. This is not mandatory, but if you can and want to, please bring some of your own clothes, wigs (if you have any), fabrics or craft materials that you have already at home and that you would like to use specifically to create your look!
This workshop is completely for free. Max. number of participants: 15. Please register for the workshop in advance and send an email to: email@example.com
