An absurd comedy sketch show from China Blue Fish and Deborah Antoinette.
‘Feminism encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians…’ Come and see us do all of this – and more!
Venus is about to collide with Earth! A multi-character melange of opinion paints the stage rainbow coloured, sequined, hairy and fleshy pink. Blending music, comedy, drag, movement, dance, buffon and the grotesque, Queen **** sees all power to the feminine, the wrathful, the sensual! In an age of Harvey Weinsteins, where passing trends compel some to surgical operation, where mainstream porn has hijacked sensuality, we delve into the wild waters of our womanhood, reclaiming the body in a joyful, dark and often anarchic exploration.
Why is it that the oldest term for the female genitalia in the English language is such a shocking and criminal expression? – Expect darkly comic, expect personal perspective, expect not turning a blind eye to gender based violence and expect a joyful reclaiming of the feminine, whilst unashamedly shedding light on the patriarchal systems that keep us all bound. With absurd sketches from characters ranging from Virgin Mary, to Theresa May, from Burt the drag king, to Frida Kahlo, this is a quest of two comedic female performers to tell it how it has never been told before! What is left that really is sacred and feminine, and what exactly is profane? F*** capitalism, f*** abusing mother nature, lets all get together and make sweet love!
