Fauxnique is the alter-ego of artist/choreographer/writer Monique Jenkinson whose work dwells at the intersection of contemporary dance and cabaret and considers the performance of femininity as a powerful, vulnerable and subversive act. Since making herstory as the first cis-woman crowned as a pageant-winning drag queen, she has performed her works in varied contexts, nationally and internationally. Her memoir Faux Queen: A Life in Drag (Amble Press) is out now & available where books are sold.
