We are pleased to introduce a model of January, Léon Charmé!!

1月のモデル、レオン・シャーメー様をご紹介致します(日本語は英語の下です)。

Shapeshifting Léon Charmé, Art Fag, Delicate Delinquent, & Fallen Angel of the Tokyo queer cabaret scene, will bring his chameleon wiles and unique brand of ‘burlesque meets butoh’ to Dr Sketchy’s on January 23th.

Originally from the East of the UK, he has made Kamakura his home (via Dar Es Salam, London, and Edinburgh).

Taking inspiration from the Grotesque and the Sublime, he makes regular appearances at Tokyo Closet Ball and Kings of Tokyo, as well as other insalubrious dives in and around Tokyo, Yokohama and Shonan.

To paraphrase Oscar Wilde, we are all in the gutter, but some of us are gazing at the stars…

東京クィア・キャバレー界のアート・ファグ、繊細な非行少年でいて堕天使、変幻自在のレオン・シャーメーが、カメレオンのように多彩な企てと唯一無二の「バーレスク・ミーツ・舞踏」をひっさげて、来たる1月23日Dr. Sketchyに登場!

イギリス東部出身、ロンドンからエディンバラ、ダルエスサラームを経て、現在は鎌倉に居を構える。

怪奇主義と荘厳美に着想を得たパフォーマンスて、Tokyo Closet BallやKings of Tokyoなどのイベントに出演しているほか、横浜や湘南のあやしげな界隈にも出没。

オスカー・ワイルドの言葉を借りれば「俺たちはみんなドブの中にいる。でもそこから星を眺めている奴らだっているんだ」といった存在でしょう。
