INTRO TO DRAG KINGING WORKSHOP

No experience necessary - come learn the basics of drag kinging from acclaimed theatre director Emily Aboud, the face behind TriniDad & TooGayThough.

In this five-hour workshop, we will be working on basic physicality, confidence onstage, developing a drag persona, and an introduction to dragging up. This is a safe and inclusive space, everyone is welcome.

Emily performs regularly as TriniDad & TooGayThough, most recently a finalist at Man Up, the UK's largest drag king competition. She is an experienced theatre director and workshop facilitator, so can offer both personal experience as well as storytelling & performance support.

Producer: Grace Dickson

We are fundraising for our inaugural production, SPLINTERED, which is playing London previews in July before heading to the Edinburgh Fringe, performing at Bedlam Theatre every day 31 July - 25 August at 9.30pm. Tickets available here: http://bit.ly/splinteredfringe

SPLINTERED is a theatre-cabaret of rebellion and empowerment, celebrating being queer and being Caribbean. Based upon interviews with women in Trinidad & Tobago, and devised with a company of actors, this is a show unlike any other. Pussy power is here, despite racism, colonialism and patriarchy, it’s here and it’s an open rebellion of joy. Expect lip sync, drag, carnival and truth – “come free up yuhself”!

Will there be any breaks?

Yes, between 2-2.45pm, as well as a couple of short ten minute breaks. You can bring your own lunch, or there are amenities nearby.

 

What should I bring with me?

Loose, comfortable clothing. Notebook & pen. Water.

Optional, but recommended: Bring the baggiest clothes you own to change into, to aid with physicality exercises.

 

Do I need to come for the whole five hours?

Ideally, yes. The price is for the whole five hours, but if you need to leave early/arrive late, then we will try to accommodate you. After booking, please email [email protected] with any timing issues.
