I am Scarlett Nymph – producer, promoter, DJ, MC and Head Mistress/ Branch Director of the Dublin and Galway branches of the infamous Dr. Sketchy’s Anti Art School.
The Dublin branch of internationally renown Dr Sketchy’s Anti Art School was established in May 2010. The monthly cabaret life drawing events outgrew a number of venues before finding a permanent home in 4 Dame Lane. In April 2012, a session was filmed for inclusion in Sky Atlantic’s documentary travel series ‘Urban Secrets’ and I was interviewed by actor Alan Cumming.
Dr Sketchy’s Galway was established in March 2014.
Dr Sketchy’s has been a feature of Culture Night in Dublin city since 2010. In 2013, I also creative directed and curated Goodall’s Edible Art Gallery as part of Culture Night celebrations on South Frederick Street.
In 2011 and 2012, I collaborated with aerial performance group PaperDolls on a number of special events, and in 2012 I programmed Dr Sketchy events for boutique festival ‘Castlepalooza’ and for Dublin Pride.
Along with hosting, promoting and DJing at Dr. Sketchy’s Dublin and Galway sessions, I have DJed at Dyke Night for Dublin Pride 2013, for Dublin clubs Nimhneach, Club Hysteria, at the launch of Dublin Lesbian Arts Festival 2009 (D’LAF), at R.I.P – Rock.Indie.Pop and filled the dance-floors of some of London’s biggest venues at Bizarre Magazine’s Bizarre Balls in 2009, 2010 & 2011. From 2009 to 2010, I was a member of alternative cabaret troupe The Pony Girls, co-producing, performing and DJing at the shows.
Starting out as Resident DJ at ‘Strand Street Cabaret’ at Foam Cafe from September to January 2012, I also co-produced the re-branded ‘Strand Street Supperclub’ in June and September 2012.
Some of my production credits include monthly events for Dr. Sketchy’s Anti Art School as well as custom Dr. Sketchy’s Sessions for Castlepalooza Festival, Shake Fest, Dublin Pride 2012 and OFFSET 2013, Sedition Industries club night and alternative cabaret events since 2010, Cabaret Caligari for the Wexford Spiegeltent Festival 2013, ‘Strand Street Supperclub’ in the Odessa Club during 2012 (with Sade O’Sapphic & Phil T Gorgeous), “The Black Rabbit Cabaret in 2011” (with Nicky Rapley), “South Fred Fest” Street Party for Culture Night 2013, 2012 and 2011 including creative direction and curating of Goodall’s Edible Art Gallery 2013.
As a promoter, I seek to bring interesting and exciting shows to new audiences such as Pretty Things Peepshow in 2013 (2014 dates coming soon) and Joe Black’s new show “Ginfully Yours” in April 2014.
Sedition Industries was established in 2010 and fuses live music, alternative performance and a club atmosphere, featuring diverse acts such as pioneer of electronic music Gary Numan, cyber-punk band Angelspit, rising star Viktoria Modesta and cult comic book creator, singer/ performer Voltaire.
