Drag Werqshop is excited to partner with the Hippodrome (a.k.a. the Hipp). The Hipp provides Drag Werqshop with a creative and unique werq space located in the heart of Downtown Gainesville, Florida. The Dragformation Showcase and Drag Werqshop will be held in the Hipp Cinema with classic theater style seating, creative lighting, and audio/visual capabilities.
On the surface, drag is artistic, exhilarating, and hilarious. It celebrates fearlessness in the form of contemplation, politics, and self-awareness. The Drag Werqshop shapes your story via the art of gender presentation, drag performance, lipsync passion, and choreographed embodiment.
The program concludes with a performance that presents your discoveries to a live audience.
