Dear Friends,

Welcome to my new website!
Big thanks to the talented (and patient) Yann Novak for his elegant design.

And many thanks to everyone who made all of this work possible, especially Loren Robertson and her video skills, and my talented (and very patient) husband, Marc.

Enjoy.

Here’s my news:

Singular Sensation

Still musing on fond memories of that time someone taught you the Hustle? Then you will LOVE Singular Sensation!

SingSen-flyer-5

I am hosting a dance party with DJ Husband, Singular Sensation, for which we bring to SF legendary Los Angeles dance phenomenon Ryan Heffington (as seen on Ru Paul’s Drag Race, and who has worked with the Gossip and Peaches). Featuring DJ’s Stanley Frank (Vienetta, Chilidog) & Pee Play (Honey Soundsystem)
I went to Sir Heffington’s club, Fingered a couple of years back in LA – same format: sweaty dance class followed by exuberant dance party – and watched every ounce of cynicism drain from my body. Join me.

Thursday June 3rd 10PM – 2AM     DANCE CLASS AT MIDNIGHT        Paradise Lounge (1501 Folsom St. @ 11th, SF)    $6

Vivvyanne Forevermore curates an experiment in collaboration as part of the National Queer Arts Festival.

‘With cross-pollination of technique, style and personal histories as the goal, each pair has created two new numbers, and documented their processes. What will fauxqueen and Best of the Bay winning performance artist FAUXNIQUE and fierce sensation baby ELIJAH MINNELLI possibly come up with?’
It’s a one time showing! Buy tickets here

Fabulous Press

And finally,  in addition to all of the amazing accolades and honors I have received this year (a GOLDIE for performance and Readers’ Poll award for drag, both from the SF Bay Guardian, and 7×7 Magazine’s Hot 20 Under 40) I was chosen as Best Performance Artist in the SF Weekly’s Best of 2010. I also finally made it into in the society pages.

Well, thank you!

And many thanks to all of you.

Fondly,

Monique/Fauxnique
