I visited the Greenwich + Docklands International Festival in June and had the amazing luck to catch Fantabulosa performing as part of Greenwich Fair.
Fantabulosa! is a suite of public space performance, participation and games created by an ensemble of drag queens, kings and other drag artists to showcase the imagination and inclusivity of drag and queer culture to children.
The show aims to challenge gender assumptions, occupy heteronormative city spaces, showcasing a wide spectrum of drag culture, welcome audiences new to drag and create for the next generation the kind of work that the artists themselves wished they had seen as children.
The show was absolutely fabulous, funny and entertaining. Its a queer-positive participatory family drag show for public spaces encompassing interactive storytelling, lipsync, performance, dress-up, games and original songs. Perfect way of educating anyone, young and old 🙂 (Aimed age 3-8) (X)
