Description

Dr. Sketchy's Berlin: The Anita Berber Salon Session
Presented by LaLaVox and Le Pustra

Featuring a Berlin legend:
BRIDGE MARKLAND

Those of you who have been coming to Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School sessions since before 2013 may remember our more intimate (and very occasional) Salon Sessions. We have decided that it is time to revive this tradition (the last one we hosted was in April of 2013), and we would like to kick off this revival with a one of Berlin's most wonderfully scandalous performers of the 1920s, Anita Berber - in one of Berlin's best kept secrets, Cafe Kalwil.

The Berlin performer Bridge Markland is a virtuoso of roleplay and transformation. An artist who effortlessly crosses boundaries between dance, theatre, performance, cabaret and puppet theatre.
Her speciality is transgender-performances in which the audience can experience the change of woman to man (or vice versa).
Markland is a pioneer of drag and gender performance in Germany. For this special and initmate session, join us and Bridge, as she transforms and showcases her unique interpretation of the fascinating Weimar High Priestess, Anita Berber - who was a trendsetter during her time. Anita was known for her nude dances and forward thinking performances.

IMPORTANT:
1. In order to protect Cafe Kalwil's beautiful furniture, this will be a PENCILS-ONLY SESSION! GRAPHITE AND COLORED PENCILS ARE ALLOWED, but please do NOT use pastels, charcoals, inks, watercolors, heavy crayons, or oils! In other words, please do not use any medium which could leave dreadful smudges or stains on lovely fabrics! If you feel disappointed by this, then try to think of this particular limitation as an opportunity to stretch your artistic abilities. ;)
