“What are you if you’re not a man or a woman, when the world forces you to be one or the other?
And what does drag even mean if you’re not a king or a queen?
Also…how can I make this into a musical?”
Non-Binary Electro Hour brings together noise about queer life, and desire for queer/trans bodies, with a brief punk history of transness outside the boxes – from queer stars of stage and screen to the gender-bending icons of today.
Expect drag theatre, sci fi, strip-tease, and spoken word. This modern-day revue is a messed up take on what it’s like to be in-between categories.
Non-Binary Electro Hour sold out its first two runs at Camden Peoples’ Theatre. Now it goes to festivals for more celebrations of gender fuckery and fantasy.
