DragQueensLand, a dazzling con-
temporary performance premiering
at the 2011 Queensland Music
Festival, shines a blazing spotlight
on Brisbane’s vibrant drag scene.
Poignant and darkly glamorous
this psychological burlesque goes
behind the makeup and illuminates
what it’s like to be a drag queen in
the queen’s only state. Director &
Dramaturg David Fenton, former
Festival Director of the Sydney
Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, said
the show is based on interviews
and research across three gen-
erations of Queensland drag artists.
“Built around a series of vignettes,
some touching and some naughty,
DragQueensLand is a fusion of
spoken word, cabaret, music and
dance” commented Fenton.
DragQueensLand stars professional
Brisbane actors Sandro Colarelli,
Brian Lucas and Lucas Stibbard,
whose combined credits include
roles with Queensland Theatre
Company, Bell Shakespeare Com-
pany, the Sydney Theatre Company
and Expressions Dance Company.
On show from July 15-31 at
the Judith Wright Centre, Bris-
bane. Tix from $30/25. Bookings

emotion to produce extraordinary works. This exhibition

Another great exhibition – this one is on show at
I Cant’ Think Straight in Daylesford. The exhibition
by Anne Atkinson titled, The Nude and explores the
beauty of the human form. Comments Anne: “I find
every model exerts a kind of intoxicating influence
over me – an influence that pushes me to explore
further, beyond the edge where flesh meets atmos-
phere, across the contours, volumes and landscape
of our form... to where I can reveal the most inti-
mate rhythm of life.”
On show ‘til July 31, Daylesford , Victoria.
