QUEENS


Mary Stuart and Elizabeth I return as undead, washed-up drag queens when a powerful force opens the gates to the present. Together with Penthesilea and Valkyrie, they have lived in limbo for centuries, ruling over various sub- and parallel worlds. As they grapple with their shared history and enduring patriarchal power structures, the idea of a joint rule emerges. Moving between opera, drag and drama, Anne Welenc's directorial debut QUEENS plays with historical and pop cultural legacies in a bold and provocative exploration of gender, power and identity. For fans of dramatic queens, drag and absurd-comic musical theatre.
