First look images are released for FutureQueer, a subversive look at an imagined queer future, all set around the iconic Donna Summer queer anthem I Feel Love. Alexis Gregory’s work appeals to cross-generational audiences, opening up new conversations for audiences. Gregory, a critically acclaimed writer and performer, presents a show that can only be described as funny, hard-hitting, and provocative. As ever with Gregory’s work, it will also be camp as f*ck.
FutureQueer, set in 2071, follows up on the success of Riot Act, which focused on LGBTQ+ pasts and is now looking to an imagined LGBT future. The moving, irreverent, and outrageously funny FutureQueer is part speculative queer excavation, part pop culture commentary, and part meditation on disco music as a metaphor for queer survival.
The show touches on subjects as wide-ranging as unborn queer babies, drag avatars, and LGBTQ+ future migration. The show runs at King’s Head Theatre Sunday 4th February – Saturday 2nd March.
