MOST AVANT GARDE THING YOU'LL SEE


Sasha Velour is an up-and-coming fireball of talent, and campy fashion shaker, that resides in New York City. Graphic designer, cartoonist, illustrator, and most importantly drag artiste.

Sasha is the first drag performer, I've seen, that uses visual art in her numbers as a way of storytelling. She wanted more tools to share that narrative with the audience, so she started to use projected images…and from there she just went bonkers. Take a look at the phenomenal performance of her's titled Cellphone. It's the most avant garde thing you see all day. I have never seen anything like it. I was literally speechless. Sasha can also be seen this Friday when the ninth season of RuPaul's Drag Race starts. This is promising to be a group of the most talented season yet.

  9. Either she's gonna go all the way without having to lip sync, or she's gonna be brutally robbed by a lip sync (i love her and this lip sync, but I feel like she's gonna get a song that she won't be able to do.

    1. Having seen her perform, she can actually do a lot! High art, comedy, drama, runway and dance. She can make a number work to her favor. Now acting challenges may be another story.
