About this Event

Sasha Velour is a gender-fluid drag queen. Velour won season 9 of the Emmy-winning reality TV competition, Rupaul’s Drag Race. She is the creator and director of the acclaimed drag show Nightgowns, which she has produced in theatres in New York, London, and Los Angeles. Velour's live performances have been called “an entirely new level of performance art” (Yahoo) and “heart-wrenching” (Billboard). She has pioneered the use of projection mapping in lip-synch drag performances, and is known for combining emotional pathos with theatrical stunts. In September 2018 she collaborated with Opening Ceremony to produce, direct, and host their Fall Fashion Show, better known as “The Gift of Showz”. She has appeared in Vogue, Vogue Italia, and Plastik Magazine. Her visual art has been the subject of 2 solo gallery shows in New York (2014 and 2016). In 2017 she drew the Google Doodle of Marlene Dietrich. She is also the creative director (and graphic designer) of the art magazine “Velour” (now released in hardcover Collector’s Edition). In December 2018, Velour spoke and performed at The Smithsonian’s The Long Conversation among the world's leading cancer surgeons and NASA scientists, to share how the power of drag can provide optimism for the future.
