Solo theatre-piece ‘FutureQueer’ hits Bethnal Green’s Town Hall Hotel for a take-over of the beautiful Council Chamber for two special performances. It's the first event to be presented as part of Town Hall Hotel’s Event and Cultural Partnerships programme. ‘FutureQueer’ sold out its recent Kings Head Theatre ‘work-in-progress’ performance.
‘Ooh, it's so good, it's so good
It's so good, it's so good, it's so good
Ooh, I feel love, I feel love
I feel love, I feel love, I feel love’
It’s 2069….and the whole world is queer.
Voguing and lip syncing are categories in the Olympics.
There is a statue of George Michael on Hampstead Heath.
And Starbucks own Pride (boo!).
Forty-six years ago, in 1977, setting out to create the sound of the future, Donna Summer recorded queer anthem ‘I Feel Love’. But what will life REALLY be like for queer people in 2069, forty-six years from now?
Armed with a vintage Donna Summer vinyl, playwright and performer Alexis Gregory decides to find out. ‘FutureQueer’ is part theatre, stand-up comedy, DIY queer lecture, pop-culture commentary, and meditation on disco music as a metaphor for queer survival. Basically….this show is camp AF. It’s also funny, moving, hard hitting, irreverent, provocative, and a very queer romp through an imagined LGBTQ+ future.
Doors and bar open from 6.30pm.
The performance will be followed by a post-show Q&A.
Limited tickets now available.
Show runs 70 mins + Q&A.
