United Shapes of Drag: Tops and Buttons!
Two Brewers, 114 Clapham High Street, London SW4 7UJ
Sunday 17th February 2019
United Shapes of Drag (USoD) make their debut at Two Brewers, Clapham with a new show of debauchery, silliness and definitely a nipple or two.
We formed back in April 2018 - after Draguating form the Art of Drag course at the RVT. Since then we’ve gone from strength to strength, our aim being to create more space for Drag and queer performers to have a voice and feel empowered.
From burlesque to stand-up, lipsync to live vocals, kings to queens to in-betweens, USoD represent many of the shapes drag can take and basically throw the whole 'drag' rule book out the window.

WE’RE BACK! Folklore presents... A Surprisingly Decent Valentines Show™, brought to you by Joy Less and...GLEW!
That’s right Sister Fibrosis has left this realm (She’s no longer in zone 1-2) and Joy has moved on quickly and bagged herself the finest Vanessa Felts impersonator in all north west london.
After a well deserved break since our Christmas show we have decided to come back in full force and bring you a show full of love, romance and #Journeys - Albiet slighty late
We, as a people (Joy and Glew) believe in the power of LOL. Comedy is an art form. It’s a lifestyle. It’s bad photoshop skills. It’s survival. It’s a passage of rite. It's Sarah Hardings bum note in 2009.
