Ever seen a drunk puppet?
Sex. Booze. Facebook. Carbs, Fess Up: what’s your guilty pleasure? Stunning stop motion animation, whimsical puppets, and sharp live performance meld in this fast-paced one-man show. X is a magical, imaginative and honest look at addiction, particularly struggles with alcohol, as well as sex and pop star obsession. The work is grounded in but not limited to queer and trans experiences and is partially informed by over forty interviews with community members. Sold out shows in San Francisco. Rave reviews in Australia. Festival award winner, including the RBC Arts Professional Award at SummerWorks 2013.
Don’t miss out your last chance to see this unique and transgressive performance by artist Sunny Drake!
“Beautiful, articulate, well considered and very sophisticated…Complex and difficult subjects are delivered in the most accessible and authentic way. It’s light hearted, fresh and wank free…. Sunny Drake is a progressive queer visionary.” (Samesame.com, Australia)
“Charming and disarmingly clever… Drake is one of those rare provocative performers who are uber smart but ultra cosy at heart… one of the most interesting and touching performances I’ve seen in a while. I learned something too, and I loathe learning when I’m out, unless it’s done with subtle talented panache….Mr Drake. I’m a fan.” (Eric Page, Gscene, Brighton)
“Sunny Drake’s show was a pleasure to behold, a sparkly moment in a life.” (Wotever World, London Oct 2013)
