Dr. Sketchy's Amsterdam

Dr. Sketchy's is an Alternative Life Drawing event - it's a Burlesque Show followed by a series of short poses so you can sketch away these beautiful femme fatales from another era. You don't have to be an artist to come to Dr. Sketchy's, just bring your drawing materials and your good cheer and join in the fun!

Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School was founded in New York in 2005 by art school drop-out Molly Crabapple. She created an event celebrating the female form through a fun mix of cabaret-style performance and drawing class, at which everyone is welcome, established artists and enthusiastic amateurs alike.

By now there are over a hundred Dr. Sketchy's all over the globe, and since Sept. 2011 there is one in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This branch is run from the already established burlesque scene and sponsored by the comics scene through Lambiek, the oldest comics store in the world, and its representative Margreet de Heer plus famous singer Charlotte Wessels

The Models (Pin-up, Burlesque, Gothic, Fetish, DaDa-istic) are ready, the bar is open. Music, entertainment, pencils and creativity, what more do you want....(?)

WHAT IS THIS

Today, burlesque is nothing short of an art form. Performers both male and female combine the most explosive aspects of costumery, dance, comedy and theater in a type of live entertainment that, of course, places nudity on a pedestal. Dita Von Teese and World Famous BOB have turned the tassel-friendly genre of performance into an evolving practice that challenges everything conventional -- from gender politics to sexuality and the public's perception of the naked body.

Burlesque has historic roots in America's minstrel culture, dating as far back as the 1840s. However, the version we know today -- a marriage of vaudevillian humor and striptease -- became popular in the early 1900s, when (mostly women) performers took to clubs and Broadway venues with their own brand of music, dance and provocative nudity. The era of Prohibition took a toll on the burlesque industry, as teetotaling politicians and authority figures took issue with both the performers and club owners that made burlesque possible. Thankfully, the genre bit back in the 1950s, as women like Sally Rand, Gypsy Rose Lee, Tempest Storm, Lili St. Cyr, and Blaze Starr emerged as boundary-pushing icons.
