Drag Movement Study: ‘These Shoes Are Called Pleasers’
By: Monique Jenkinson/Fauxnique
Video: Michelle Blioux
Music: Roxy Music

San Francisco-based artist Monique Jenkinson aka Fauxnique‘s performance practice is informed by a tradition of radical queer performance and theory. Since 2003 she has been deeply engaged in an ongoing project: Fauxnique, her drag queen persona. Through this lens, she magnifies the definitions of ‘woman,’ ‘feminine’ and ‘drag queen,’ cultivating an intimacy with oppressive and empowering effects of feminine tropes – creating a zone of play and witty critique. In 2009 she created two solo shows: Faux Real, which played at NYC’s New Museum and garnered an SF Bay Guardian GOLDIE award, and the acclaimed Luxury Items, commissioned by ODC Theater’s AIR program.
