Sasha & her team are currently in Canberra in full rehearsals and today announced they are in fact bringing us their world premiere of her first one woman show, Smoke & Mirrors. Formerly titled “Sasha Velour: Live and In Colour”.
Inspired by the parallels between drag and the historical traditions of vaudeville, circus, and magic, “Smoke & Mirrors” is an experimental queer fantasia that showcases Velour’s innovative use of projections in lip-synch performances, her signature style of theatrical stunts paired with emotional pathos, and her mission to create new ways of viewing drag.
The 75-minute theatre show is told in two acts, with 12 dazzling performances, written, directed and produced by Velour herself, ultimately seeking to prove that drag, while an act of magic, is less about deception than it is about telling the truth.
Step right up and see Sasha Velour’s Smoke & Mirrors — an unforgettable drag spectacular, a heart-wrenching night of queerness, fashion, and shows — unlike anything you’ve seen before!
