TOMBOI Entertainment: The Drag Kings in “RES-ERECTION”

TOMBOI Entertainment presents: The Drag Kings in “RES-ERECTION”

Comedy, music & dance for anyone who is a man or a woman or thinking of becoming one

Risqué’, Riotous, Revealing.....RES-ERECTION will elevate and up-lift with this funny, unique, provocative show. It’s loaded with send-ups, piss-takes, interpretations and observations that draw on our straight and queer world.

After a five year hiatus seven core members of The Drag Kings storm the stage once more. Wellington’s beloved gender-benders of the noughties *ahem* return with audience favourites and new stage numbers that will delight in true Drag Kings style. There’s closeted protection about the contents of the show but as a tempter if bearded hard rockers, brill-creamed boy bands and voluptuous burlesque send-ups are your thing then this variety packed show will topsy, turvy & titillate and that’s just for starters!

The show amalgamates lip-synching, live singing, dance, comedy sketch and music and wraps it in a proud rainbow for your enjoyment. The Drag Kings formed in 2001 and have dazzled with previous performances at Wellington’s Downstage Theatre, San Francisco Bathhouse, Blue-note Bar, Big Kumara and Melbourne’s Midsummer Festival (to name a few).

The Drag Kings celebrate the silly and sublime and choose to perform certain stage numbers just for the sheer joy of it. In saying that, they’re also adept at conveying their queer point of view; often in hilarious ways. RES-ERECTION is good natured, clever, twisted fun; truly delivering something for anyone who is a man or a woman or thinking of becoming one.

Review: Howard Davis On Olivier Assayas' 'Personal Shopper'

Olivier Assayas’ Personal Shopper is stylish, mysterious, and very strange indeed. It manages to be both ghost story and suspense thriller, yet also a portrait of numbed loneliness and ennui , held together by an peculiarly inexpressive performance from ... More>>

Howard Davis: Never Too Old To Rock & Roll - Jethro Tull

As Greil Marcus recently observed in an NYRB review of Robbie Robertson's autobiographical Testimony, in rock and roll there is always an origin story. In the case of Jethro Tull founder Ian Anderson, he claims to have been influenced by his father's big band and jazz record collections and the emergence of rock music in the 1950s, but became disenchanted with the "show biz" style of early US stars like Elvis Presley...

Howard Davis Review: The Contemporary Relevance Of Denial

Denial has all the hallmarks of a riveting courtroom drama. Based on a 1996 British libel case that author David Irving brought against Lipstadt, the movie has been criticized as flat and stagey, but it nonetheless conveys a visceral clarity of vision and sense of overwhelming urgency. More>>
