KING

KING is a provocative one-woman image theatre show about the tragic demise of a cross-dressing Freddie Mercury impersonator. It plays with themes of drag, identity and the alter-ego, and uses a deconstructed soundscape of Queen songs, layered over live singing.

Sound design by Matt Collings and lighting by Alberto Santos.

KING was made by Claire during a 3 week international artistic residency with Conflux. Receiving funding and mentoring from Al Seed (Conflux), director Hilary Westlake and Elinor Randle (Tmesis Theatre), the piece was performed as part of Physical Fest, Liverpool and for Surge Festival and the Commonwealth Cultural Programme 2014 at The Arches, Glasgow.
