Dr. Sketchy’s Baltimore featuring Jacqueline Boxx
Wednesday, Jan. 15 at Creative Alliance

Join us at Creative Alliance for our first night of drinks and drawing of 2020, featuring Jacqueline Boxx, the amazing Miss Disa-burly-TEASE, who links burlesque, glamour and spectacle to disability! Enjoy a delicious cocktail or two while competing in our off-the-wall drawing contests for awesome prizes from Blick Art Materials—no drawing experience is necessary, but bring your own art supplies and cash tips for Jacqueline!

Here’s a little bit about Jacqueline:

“In 2017, Jacqueline Boxx became the first performer to ever compete in a wheelchair for a title at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender. Her mobility aids are as enticing as her activism, and she packs an aesthetic and emotional punch, whether she brings classic tease, nerdlesque, or neo-burlesque to the stage. Her background before disability involved trapeze, circus, hooping, cabaret, theater, bellydance, swing dance, ballet, and numerous other kinds of performance art, including touring with The Dresden Dolls as part of their Brigade.  Her mobility decreased gradually and these performance outlets lessened as well, until she burst back onto the stage in 2015 with a renewed feeling of partnership with her disabled body. She has headlined and been featured in burlesque festivals across the globe, including being invited onto the Burlesque Hall of Fame stage twice. Jacqueline has also taught workshops and lectured on panels about mindful movement and burlesque basics across the country.

“Her acts are all related in some way to her experience with chronic pain and limited mobility, and she strives to bring attention through glamour and spectacle to disability.  She is: Miss Disa-burly-TEASE!”

DRINKTICKET

A few things to know about our move!

As Creative Alliance will be handling our ticket sales through their website and box office, a service fee will be applied to online transactions and in-person ticket sales made within three hours of the event. You can avoid this fee by purchasing tickets in person at Creative Alliance the day before or earlier (they’re open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.). Creative Alliance members save on admission (as they do on the variety of other events CA has, including their Saturday morning life drawing), so if you look through their calendar and like what you see, consider becoming a CA member!

Lastly, if you’ve found yourself in a back row at past Sketchy’s sessions, unable to see the model from the waist-down without having to stand, take note: Creative Alliance’s theater is huge, has a slightly higher stage than the Windup’s, and there are no columns or giant speakers between you and the model, so we expect everyone should have a head-to-toe view of the model! You’re also more likely to be able to get a seat at a table. We still encourage you to arrive early for the best seats, and Creative Alliance advises that seats are only held for ticket buyers for 25 minutes after an event starts.
