LA Comedy Live is excited to announce that Rupaul Drag Race Season 9’s critically acclaimed winner and reigning queen, SASHA VELOUR, will be bringing her latest tour to Singapore for the first time on July 25, 2018 at Shine Auditorium!
This July, we're so excited to be bringing you a slice of the incredible Brooklyn night life. A 75-minute one-woman show lovingly created and staged by Sasha Velour, winner of Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 9. Celebrating the spectacle and heart of drag, the show includes some of her favourite numbers Cellophane, This Woman's Work, Don't Cry Out Loud and more along with some brand new creations.
Throughout the show, you'll be taken on a journey by your favourite high-fashion goddess through the unique, hyper-gendered queer fantasia that is drag!
You can expect to walk away enlightened and enriched by this queen's amazing art. Don't miss your chance to catch this once in a lifetime experience with one of the true drag artists of the Brooklyn nightlife scene.
Sasha Velour is a gender-fluid drag queen and illustrator who lives in New York. Velour won season 9 of the Emmy-winning reality TV competition, Rupaul's Drag Race which was nominated for an additional 8 Emmys that same year. She produces and stars in the drag show “Nightgowns," which has been called “[the] thinking queens drag show by Time Out NY and “a signature blend of thoughtful, politically-charged, emotional drag” by NEXT Magazine.
Velour's makeup and look transformations have been featured in publications such as Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Vanity Fair, and Billboard. Steinberg has further created, produced, and organized different photoshoots, collages, and drawings that discuss art and drag.
Steinberg's comics and illustrations have appeared in The Nib, InkBRICK,Comics Workbook Magazine, QU33R,Cicada Magazine and others, under the names Sasha Velour and Sasha Steinberg. Sasha also created a series of comics entitled "Stonewall", which told the story of the Stonewall riots from multiple viewpoints. The series was called "a smart, beautiful and artful take on a significant and difficult historical event" by Highlow Comics.
Sasha Velour didn't leap directly from the pages of comics and onto TV screens. Before her time on the show, she was a star in Brooklyn's drag scene, a community that embraces a definition of drag that spans far beyond female impersonation, and prizes artistic innovation in lip syncing. Velour's signature look—beautifully bald with a striking unibrow—and sensitive, video art-accompanied syncs made her a local success. And she's kept up her visual art practice even as she's become a well-known performer.
She is also the creative force behind Velour: The Drag Magazine, a yearly publication about drag artists that has been called “unmistakably thoughtful…[with an] edgy, demure, and exacting aesthetic” by Bushwick Daily.
