STAND UP / DRAG / BURLESQUE
Punch Up! – Resistance & Glitter brings together the hottest names and sharpest minds in stand up, burlesque and drag! After two sold-out nights at Mad House Helsinki this spring, the club will move to Korjaamo’s Kulmasali for fall 2018.
Each evening’s program is provided by Jamie MacDonald, Miss Vinyl Envy, Juuso Kekkonen, and their awesome guests, directing their weapons-grade merriment at bullies, bigots and the powerful. All evenings are their own separate iconoclastic shows full of laughter and glitter!
Mildred Prude is here to fix Finland, once and for all.
From jazz singer to burlesque performer, Lady Laverna covers it all. Laverna stretches from sassy sweetness to gender bending queerlesque and she refuses to leave her audience chilly. Laverna has performed for years on stages all around Finland but also at New York Burlesque Festival, Vienna Boylesque Festival and Best of Vaudeville Variety in Berlin just to name a few.
Nelli Ruotsalainen is a Helsinki-based feminist activist whose debut poetry collection, Täällä en pyydä enää anteeksi (Pesä Publishing 2018), examines the experiences of being brought up a girl in a misogynist heterocispatriarchy. The collection exalts the message of our time: the rule of men is crashing to its end on all cultural, political, and personal fronts. Ruotsalainen's poetry unabashedly celebrates autobiographical writing as a political act and thus aligns their work in the feminist autobiographical tradition. Through precise details Ruotsalainen succeeds in making feminist theory so accessible its message cannot go ignored.
Hasard Le Sin
Hasard le Sin brazenly demands your attention, defies gender expectations, celebrates desire but delights in denial to the point where he's frequently not quite sure whether he's teasing himself, the audience, or both. He also likes to pull things out of his ass, literally and metaphorically.
Sweet, beautiful, charming - and not at all vain, Dougie Powell has the black heart of a moody Goth and the soul of a shut-in gamer nerd. Beneath the layers of dark make-up, there is a secret desire to avoid all members of the human race with the sole company of video games and gin. Dougie’s not the brightest bulb in the dance club- but they always have the best hair!
Miss Vinyl Envy
Punch Up!'s resident drag oddity Miss Vinyl Envy fills the stage with fucktons of frenzied energy and visual fireworks. This no-holds-barred creature from the outer edges of the drag galaxy combines elements from hiphop to haute couture and from acid trips to bedtime stories. When Vinyl Envy performs, anything can happen. Hold on to your seats.
James Lórien MacDonald & Juuso Kekkonen
