Drag King Poetry Night with Artist Diane Torr

Swindon Arts Centre

Sun 5 October

Drag King Poetry Night with Artitis Diane Torr
SHOW INFORMATION

A surprising night of poetry and music.

Women have cross-dressed throughout history and five women poets and one musician will experience the transformation from female to male to discover new performance responses and test out their new identities, for one night only! With poets Hilda Sheehan, Clare Shaw, Kim Moore, Myfanwy Fox, Anna Saunders, and singer songwriter Fay Rogers. The audience are invited to be drag king and queens too!

Diane Torr’s work focuses on intercepting the narratives of sex and gender. She is considered a pioneer of drag king culture and has toured her performances and taught Man-for-a-Day workshops around the globe. Her book, co-authored by Stephen Bottoms, Sex, Drag and Male Roles: Investigating Gender as Performance(2010) is published by University of Michigan Press.
