When Sasha Velour bled a cascade of rose petals from her head during the final performance on season nine of RuPaul’s Drag Race, you knew she was going to sahay away with the crown.
Since her win, she’s been touring and putting all her energy into her one queen show “Smoke and Mirrors” where she blends drag, visual art, projection, impossible costumes and magic into an unstoppable tour de force.
Today we take a look at Sasha Velour’s new show, “Smoke and Mirrors” and a look at “Victory Over the Sun,” the oddball Russian Futurist opera with outrageous costumes that caused a violent riot when it first hit theaters in St. Petersburg 100 years ago.
