Queering the Crip, Cripping the Queer: Unsightly drag and friends, Sophiensæle

16. September 2022 20:00


Welcome to Unsightly Drag and Friends: Quiplash invites the audience to a dazzling and somewhat different evening of cabaret! The Drag Kings, Queens and Things perform their way into the hearts of the audience with song, dance and lip sync – all while wearing large amounts of glitter! There performs an ensemble of Queer Crips aka Quips – a group of disabled and neurodivergent performers who are at home across the LGBTQQIA+ spectrum. As host, Tito Bone leads through the evening under the slogan “joy as an act of resistance” and invites you to smell the world through their nose. Between musical and stand-up comedy, abstract worlds and smooth moves, performers Venetia Blind, Ebony Rose Dark, Tobi Adebajo and Mr. Wesley Dykes show us how sexy the mix of entertainment and access can be.

A production of Quiplash. The guest performance is made possible with funds from the Senate Department for Culture and Europe as part of the festival Queering the Crip, Cripping the QueerMedia partner: taz, die tageszeitung.
