Want to do drag but don't know where to get started? Doing drag but want to up your game? Learn how to create slick, simple but sickening stage spots that are guaranteed to stick in this drag basics workshop.
In this session aimed to get your creative brain sparking, we'll cover the logistics of 'getting started', how to developing a character and pulling together a solid, satisfying act. Specifically, prepare to upskill your lipsync, storytelling, choreography, prop use, and explore how to use energy, climax and reveals to your advantage.
This workshop is perfect for all new dragsters, kings, queens and inbetweens, as well as anyone creating a character and acts in any kind of cabaret discipline.
Please bring pen and paper and wear clothes you're happy to move in.
Praise for the courses:
"I have been running cabaret events for over 10 years and I learned tons in this workshop." - Rachel Rouge
"I would like to take a moment to say how blown away I was. I went into both of these workshops with very high expectations. What Hugo delivered was far beyond anything I could have prepared myself for. The professionalism and personal connection during both workshops was phenomenal ... after two short sessions with Hugo Grrrl, I feel far more confident and prepared than ever before ... If you ever have a chance to attend a workshop run by this fabulous master: PLEASE, TAKE IT. I am overjoyed with the mental equipping I was given, and am ready to push myself forward and up in the world." - Ben Munt
