Lockdown, gloomy lockdown! In light of the recent restrictions being imposed on Melbourne due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to cancel our planned in-person event for the upcoming Issue #12 Launch Party.
We believe this is the right thing to do for both the safety of the community as well as for support of Hares & Hyenas - our favourite live venue who have graciously hosted Demasque events over the past three years - which we so desperately want to stay unaffected.
With the above being said, we have in fact decided to replace the would-be in-person event with a virtual livestream party, to be hosted on Zoom. This virtual event will have all of the bits and pieces to be expected from our in-person events (live performances and DJs), and will potentially include some extra goodies, like Q&A’s with some of the contributors featured in this newly-releasing issue of Demasque Magazine.
We are excited to try out this new virtual format for a huge variety of reasons, but perhaps, most importantly, because we will still be able to come together and celebrate the launch of Demasque Magazine Issue #12 from the safety and comfort of our homes.
(Attendees who purchased a ticket prior to June 2nd have been contacted via email with their options).
Please join us for a night of entertainment, socialising, networking and kink pride! All info for this virtual event is to be found below.
WHEN: Friday 11th June from 8.00PM AEST.
WHERE: ZOOM - Link to event will be sent to ticketholders within the hour prior to the event starting. Ticket holders will need a Zoom account to access the event (Zoom is a free video conferencing service that anyone in the world with an internet connection can access on a digital device.

A retro-fetish inspired burlesque act by Celia Bow!
"Raised on a diet of Russ Meyer, Playboy and records, Celia Bow is your ultimate hip-shaking, heartbreaking 1960s dream girl. Combining glamour and sleaze with her natural sex kitten charm, Miss Bow’s acts will leave you absolutely infatuated. When she’s not collecting kinky smut or hanging in smoky beatnik bars, Celia can be seen around town as Melbourne’s go-to Go-Go gal."

MARIJA THE ROMANTIC
What better to celebrate with than... cake?
"Marija The Romantic is a Melbourne-based performance artist. She is acclaimed for her evocative live explorations of food and erotica, moving through the spectrum of human emotion, teasing and challenging audiences across Australia and the world in unorthodox ways.
Marija’s work seeks to liberate what is trapped, whether it is herself from an outfit, a story from a person, or a well of emotion from a captured audience. She regularly hosts themed life-modelling classes with herself as the subject, and often collaborates with organisations and festivals such as Scratch Arts and Burning Seed."
