Cabaret & Drag Lab

Autumn 2024
Create a drag alter-ego, give lip-syncing a go or step into London’s cabaret scene for the first time on our Cabaret & Drag Lab course.

Our 10-week Cabaret & Drag Lab is a supportive environment taking participants through exercises and games to generate material and develop skills to create a new act. You will be working to create your own 3.5-minute set which you will perform at the end of term, in front of a live and supportive audience.

The Cabaret and Drag group meet weekly on Saturdays, with a public sharing at the final session which will take place on a Monday evening at our Dean Street venue. We ask that participants commit to attending all 10 weeks.
