WAR Belly

December 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:00pm, repeating until December 9, 2018


In this multimedia extravaganza, the drag-huntress Victory Medusa will lead audiences in a fabulous faux-ritual to stalk “the Man” and bring him to heal. I am thrilled to have Nico Swenson directing this project. WAR Belly is an interactive drag performance exploring male socialization and all its messy ramifications from a trans-feminine perspective. During the show audiences will be led through a series of warped childhood games designed to uncovered the violence at the core of male identity and explore how we can heal from the damage it reaps. Throughout these activities Victory Medusa will perform a drag numbers intended to frame the games and broaden the possible meanings the audience can make. These will include both lip-synced songs and monologues, as well as remixed videos of childhood cartoons like Avatar the Last Air Bender and He-Man. Directed by Nico Swenson.

This project was partially funded by the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture and generous donors.
