Bitter Queen is a new physical theatre work that walks the borders between contemporary dance, inter-mediated performance and installation. The viewer is immersed into a debauched cocktail party circa 1969 that quickly dissolves into byzantine labyrinth of performance that challenges the relationship between viewer and performer and the line between queer and “What the the hell is going on?”
Part of The Garage AIRspace residency program for queer performance.
Directed by Joe Landini, Donna Moore Assistant Director. Featuring Becky Robinson-Leviton, Elizabeth Cooper, Rachael Elliott, Kaitlin Parks, Marie Walburg Plouviez.
