Queerlesque No 8 London


Queerlesque Course No. 8!

A 6 Lesson Series In ‘Lesque Arts

Queen of Queerlesque, Rubyyy Jones is back with her sixth course in the study and development of solo neo/queerlesque work!

This thorough and exciting series will have a strong focus on Neo Burlesque and will incorporate queer performance devices like lip-syncing, activism through performance but also classic burlesque origins of striptease, clown and dance. It will be an intensive but fun course and is perfect for people of all genders who have already started performing or who are well acquainted with either burlesque, drag or queer cabaret scenes and artists…


We will have a small group of students, the course is open to all genders and styles and we will learn just as much for each other each week, as from the exercises and homework you complete.

Each week you will be assigned homework, which is vital but also flexible. No one is under any pressure to perform in the final showcase but all are welcome! The first five sessions run successively and are 7:30 - 10:00 PM, in a studio space in East London. The sixth session is there also but with a few weeks to prepare for the final session and the acts.
