Kicking off in Belfast on Saturday, 12 February 2022, the global drag superstar, award-winning TV producer and winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9 will visit nine cities in the UK, including the legendary Hammersmith Eventim Apollo and setting of on a mammoth 27 dates tour across Europe, including the moved dates for part of EU and the UK leg.
Sasha Velour’s “Smoke & Mirrors” must be seen to be believed. At over 90 minutes, “Smoke & Mirrors” is a lip-synched autobiographical fantasy with captivating visuals and breathtaking surprises. Dreamed up and meticulously performed by Velour, every second of this iconic production remains heart-felt and unforgettable. The soundtrack spans from Judy Garland to Le Tigre, featuring Velourian classics like “So Emotional” (Whitney Houston) and “Cellophane” (Sia) Throughout, theatrical techniques are used to unmask deeper truths about gender, grief, fame, and community. This is a show dedicated to anyone who dares to live life “over the top!”
Sasha Velour says: “It’s really happening! ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ is returning to Europe with a vengeance, and I can’t wait to share magic, tears, and most importantly DRAG with you. Get your looks ready and prepare for a night of spectacular proportions.”
Sasha has pushed the boundaries of what drag can be, by incorporating her signature innovative use of projection mapping into “Smoke & Mirrors.” The projection visuals aren’t just background to the show, Sasha uses them to grow into a tree, conjure a rainstorm, saw herself in half and more–it’s all part of an immersive theatrical experience that surprises and delights fans at every show.
Sasha Velour’s “Smoke & Mirrors”, the biggest ever one-queen drag show of its kind, will tour 36 dates across the UK and Europe, promising a uniquely spectacular night of drag and a spectacle that must be seen to be believed.
