//////////////////////// DRAG KING WORKSHOP 👑

A Drag King workshop will be held on the occasion of La Cascade 2 de Rivière on Saturday, July 20 at Rita-Plage, with the Kings Sauvages!

Drag is a way of exploring one's gender identity, criticizing pre-built norms, or even experimenting with an unknown social position. Drag King in particular allows us to approach and question masculinity in order to appropriate it, discover it or deconstruct it.

The workshop will be above all a time of meeting and discussion around our conceptions of masculinity, as well as physical transformation on the basis of the 3B (beard, binder, dick). Drag King remains a very broad practice that leaves room for adaptations and experiments and that allows both gender hybridity and a binary transformation. Your King can be realistic, folkloric or magical, macho and toxic or benevolent and utopian. You are the creator! 💪

At the end of this workshop will take place at Rita-Plage from 7pm The Waterfall 2 animated by River, with its guests star Noah The Kid and Olek Do: a drag evening where you can play with your King. An open stage will also be offered if you want to try yourself on stage and blaze in the spotlight. Join us to make your King appear that day!

/////////// WHAT TO EXPECT /////////////

Beginning at 15h, approximate end around 18h. The workshop will be at free price to reimburse the purchase of the material necessary for the physical transformations. Do not forget to bring change for this! 💵

What is important to bring for physical transformation:
- A "masculine" outfit for the King, different from that usually worn on the day itself
- Hair loss to make a realistic beard (otherwise we will rab rab hair) 💇 💇♂️
- Makeup adapted to the skin / hair color and brushes, so you do not have to wait for your turn with the common makeup (optional, we have a base available)
- Binder or tapes for those who own them
- Pocket mirrors

Try to arrive on time, the general presentation and the discussion on masculinity are just as important as the practical part! 🕒
