Drachma LGBTI will be bringing to Malta the drag-king performance of ‘JOAN’. A truly unique international show comes to Spazju Kreattiv this May.
Joan is an award-winning play that tells Joan of Arc’s earthy story of courage, conviction and hope. Performed by British drag king champion Lucy Jane Parkinson, history’s greatest gender-warrior takes to the stage, dragging up as the men she defies in this smash-hit show. Packed with guts, heart (and some well-placed couscous), JOAN is a fusion of lyrical new writing and cabaret.
Drag Queens have long been at the forefront experimental performance and popular entertainment, but Kings are quickly catching up. This is a timely and refreshing look at one of history’s most famous heroines, exploring the salient themes of identity, courage and belief.
JOAN is a Drag King theatre show that aims to introduce Maltese audiences to this ever-growing art form – for one weekend only!
This project is supported by Arts Council Malta – Creative Communities.
Dates and Times: Friday 25 – Sunday 27 May 2018, 8:00PM
