Drag Name Origin[]

Biography[]

Robert Fux was born in Kalmar, Småland, Sverige to Swedish mother and Austrian father. He has five siblings, with little sister Molly as the one closest to him. He moved to Wien, Austria at 10 and attended to school there. After the parents broke up, Robert, Molly and their mother moved back to Kalmar, where he attended high school. High school times were hard for him, as he felt alone and was bullied as he began questioning his sexuality. He found himself and his tribe within "the nerds, wimps and fantastic people" of the high school theatre group. Once he came out, he called local newspaper Barometern, which made a two-page reportage of him as representation for queer youth in Kalmar. Day after graduation, Robert Fux drove to Stockholm, where his career began to blossom. [4]

Career[]

Robert Fux began his drag career as a 17-year-old. Three years later, on the very first Stockholm Pride he was crowned Miss Pride[5]. He was a member of drag performance group Cunigunda, which branched from drag collective After Dark. Cunigunda's shows were known for extreme stagecostumes, hard club music and close connect with the audience. The group (under the name Cunigundas Mammor) also brought "drugbingos" to Sweden, with the cause of raising money to HIV/AIDS charities through drag bingos. Fux was one of the driving forces behind the drag- and burlesque club Hootchy Kootchy Club. He was working at NK Cosmetics, when Stina Oscarsson, the artistic director of Orionteatern and an old friend from Kalmar presented him with an offer he could not turn down. He was to play Dag Hammarsköld in a monology of last hours of his life. He had previously done small statist roles in drag, but this was something big. Fux quit his job at NK Cosmetics and begun Theatre School at Teaterhögskolan i Stockholm. Within time, Robert Fux grew his skills and his network of theatre people and since 2011 he has been a staple ensemble member of Stockholm City Theatre. Despite being part of the ensemble, Fux wanted to be known as a Drag Artist rather than actor. As he puts it himself: "All my roles come from some kind of thought of drag, regardless if I play a man or a woman."[6] He started a performing arts collective called Tre Björnar och En Utter with choreograph Carl Olof Bergh, actor Per Öhangen and mediapersonality Farao Groth. He found the "Burleskgalan" for Stockholm Pride, together with producer David Sallmander [7]. Fux has had his own show "Salong Fux", featuring many artist from Sweden and abroad performed in 2019. His own production Dragshow – en näradödeupplevelse was performed in 2021 [8].
