House of Auer and KAMU Espoo City Museum proudly present: CLOWN AMBITION – drag workshop!
Would you like to learn about the history and significance of drag as well as create your own drag character? This workshop will introduce you to drag as a means of self-expression, a culture and an art form, in addition to a drag make-up masterclass and performance coaching. The workshop and show will be produced by the legendary drag collective from Vantaa, House of Auer.
House of Auer was founded in 2016 by a group of four friends from a shared passion for drag art and memes in Koivukylä, Vantaa, from where they have since managed to push their way onto stages all over Finland. Now the collective is coming from Tikkurila to Tapiola to share their know-how and bringing along a colleague from the top of the Finnish drag scene; Mira Eskelinen aka Miss Vinyl Envy / Maxxximo to tell you more! These four, dynamic workshops will teach you all the essentials you need to know about drag and help you become the next shining drag diamonds of Espoo. The workshop is aimed at anyone who is part of the queer community, is over the age of 18 and lives in Espoo. The workshop is free of charge for participants. The working language of the workshop is Finnish or English if necessary.
The drag workshop will take place on four Wednesday evenings in the Exhibition Centre WeeGee in Tapiola in May-June 2023:
Wednesday 3rd May 2023 from 17:00 to 20:00
Wednesday 17th May 2023 from 17:00 to 20:00
Wednesday 31st May 2023 from 17:00 to 20:00
Wednesday 7th June 2023 from 17:00 to 20:00.
The workshop will conclude with a House of Auer drag show at KAMU WeeGee on Wednesday, 14th June 2023, where the workshop participants will also have the opportunity to perform if they wish.
