Wendy Delorme

Paris (FR)
performance

Wendy Delorme is a French writer & performance artist. She is the author of a queer novel and feminist manifesto Quatrième Génération (Grasset, France, 2007), and a collection of short stories about sex politics & queer lives (to be published in March 2009). She is currently writing her third book, an erotic novel.

As a performer, she tours European queer art & feminist festivals. As a sex educator, she writes and translates sex education books into French, and hosts sex education workshops for women & trans people. In 2005 she took part in the first French queer porn feature One Night Stand by Emilie Jouvet and she keeps playing to create visibility for queer sex & politics. As a burlesque performer, she impersonates both female and male characters and tours with the drag-burlesque trio Drag King Fem Show across Europe, as well as the Parisian burlesque troupe Kisses Cause Trouble.

Her work is based on language and body performance, twisting meanings of female anatomy and words. "Femme in the streets, butch in the sheets".
