How can the drag community channel talent and creativity into a more collaborative practice based in the principles of sustainability?
Connect with drag queen Lizzy Strange, King, Fabien L’Amour and our artist in residence Drag performer KAJOL, as they have conversations about building costumes and what a drag practice could look like through a sustainable lens. Panelists will model the beautiful costumes made while stirring conversations about how we can, as a community come together to build a drag practice that is centred in re-use, recycle, sharing and rebuilding.
Come in your finest drag or try on some of the marvellous clothing and head pieces built by KAJOL herself!
How can you participate? Join us in person or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or watching live on YouTube.
An anomaly is an abnormality, a blip on the screen of life that doesn’t fit with the rest of the pattern. It is fair to say that Lizzy Strange is an anomaly in the world of drag queens. Seamlessly melding lived experiences with interdisciplinary performance and pop culture, Lizzy uses drag to deconstruct everyday occurrences
Felicia Latour (she/elle/sie) / Fabien L’Amour
Fabien L’Amour is the imperfect answer to toxic masculinity and the ultimate incarnation of a “sadboi.” His name, a bit of French wordplay, is just one side to this tender and political guy who enjoys deconstructing our shared narratives. Since starting drag almost a year ago, he’s become increasingly passionate about sustainable costume practices and hopes to see a shared drag closet pop up in Montreal.
Named after the 90’s Bollywood diva, KAJOL is your not-so-regular South Asian ,musical theatre loving, queer drag creature! They use drag to explore hybrid identity and love to tell stories through their performances. Said Kah-Jol. Jol…Like Jolene…Jolene, JOLene, JOLEEEEN.
