Burlesque legend, Paco Fish, is the featured model for a special Saturday edition of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School. Tomorrow at Kanawha Players Theater at 6 PM, artists and photographers can settle in for a session with the one and only, Paco Fish.
Admission is $10 at the door. Bring your own art supplies and your own bottle, if you wish. This is a 18-up event. All art mediums are accepted as long as they don’t disturb anyone else (ask first before firing up the chainsaw). Artists of any skill level from the novice to the pro are invited to come create in this relaxed environment.
The official Paco Fish bio tells us, ” Paco Fish is a dynamic performer of spoken and physical comedy, burlesque, boylesque, stilt walking, clown, mime, and a variety of other disciplines. Most of Paco’s characters exist in multiple forms and his acts are visual representations of the transitions between these coexisting identities. Whether playing a freshwater turtle in forbidden saltwater love, an exhausted cheerleader, or a submissive judge, Paco dismantles assumptions and defies convention with humor and passion. He has performed in nearly every state in the US and has won the title of “King of Burlesque” at the Southern Fried, Carolina, and Great Southern Exposure Burlesque Festivals, “Most Humorous” from both the Great Burlesque Exposition and The Carolina Burlesque Festival, and was voted one of the top ten male burlesque performers of 2013 by 21st Century Burlesque.”
This should be a unique and memorable night of Sketchy’s.
