Critically acclaimed gender-fluid drag queen, visual artist, speaker, illustrator, and newly minted author Sasha Velour has been a force in the international drag scene long before her scene-stealing, rose-petal-filled win on season nine of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Billed as a first-of-its-kind, her debut book The Big Reveal: An Illustrated Manifesto of Drag was released earlier this year. Inside, Sasha illuminates the rich history and revolutionary spirit of this unique form of expression, weaving photos and her own original artwork with insightful critical theory, riveting LGTBQ+ history, personal memoir, and all-engrossing camp.
Sasha’s first one-queen drag show Smoke & Mirrors was called a 'spell-binding tour de force' (Forbes), bewitching audiences and critics alike. The Big Reveal Live Show has now also proved a hit, touring to sold-out crowds in the US and Canada earlier this year.
'I can’t wait to bring this show over' Sasha says. 'It has lots of new work I’m proud of and I can’t wait to show the audiences in Europe even more of myself and my drag!'
This is an exciting time for Sasha, who has just been announced as one of the new hosts for the fourth season of award-winning HBO show We’re Here. She was also recently commissioned by the Tony Award-winning Tectonic Theatre Project to star in and co-create a new theatrical work, alongside legendary director Moises Kaufman.
