CALL TO DRAG PERFORMERS: THE DRAG LAB
The Young Everyman and Playhouse Producers Company Presents: The Drag Lab
About the Piece:
“Enter our experimental, transitional space and be reborn as we ask what does drag mean to you? Working with some of the cities most subversive queer performers we invite you to take the gender rule book and rip it up as we take you on a journey of self-discovery.
A unique offering from the YEP Producers at the Everyman this LightNight, The Drag Lab is an exploratory promenade piece taking you through the conception and evolution of the artistry of DRAG.
Like drag, this event is totally inclusive and open to audiences of all genders.”
What we are looking for:
We are looking to work with performers who have experience of performing drag in all of its beautiful forms (incl Drag Kings, Queens, Gender fluid, Queer and Non-Conforming). Performers will be expected to perform for around 20 minutes every hour on the hour from 8 pm to 11 pm with a 30-minute break in between performances.
We are looking for dancers, actors, performance artists, cabaret artists and comedy performers to share their stories of Drag
