Critical Mascara is a “post-realness” drag ball. It is part competition, part dance party and queer spectacle structured and inspired by the NYC and East Coast drag scene of the 80’s ala “Paris Is Burning”. Infused with the creative contemporary spirit of the Pacific Northwest and recent surge of queer improvisational dance and a dash of RuPaul’s drag race fervor, Critical Mascara is a borderland and potential space for staged Utopia and fierce glamour!
Critical Mascara values daring conceptual risks, creativity alive in your body, and the courage to show your ferocious nature live on stage! Our panel of guest judges will be scoring you based on CREATIVITY, CONCEPT, ENERGY ON STAGE, and OVERALL LOOK. But, don’t be daunted babies, you too could win!
