The Legend of Queen Kong Episode II: Queen Kong in Outer Space

Concert or Performance

16 Jan 2019 to 20 Jan 2019

Sarah Ward, the artist behind Yana Alana, brings you her latest stage creation, Queen Kong, in a space-fiction rock-concert of meteoric proportions.

With complete disregard for conventional chronology, the narrative starts in the middle. Prodigal protagonist Queen Kong – part rock, part ape, immortal being – has been imprisoned by humans for being too large. Embarking on a journey of transmutations and bi-curious encounters through time and space, Queen Kong discovers what it means to be human.

This inclusive new work features a powerhouse performance by the subversive Sarah Ward, backed by all-queer, all-gender-diverse rock band The HOMOsapiens, led by Bec Matthews. Joining them on screen is deaf performer Asphyxia with live Auslan interpreting by Kirri Dangerfield. Queen Kong is directed by Susie Dee with lighting by Paul Lim, while mind blowing visual projections come courtesy of style icon Will Huxley and animator Finn Scholes.

All performances are Auslan interpreted – no Auslan bookings are required due to the nature of the performance.
