Created and performed by Milk Presents

Do not adjust your television set proscenium arch. This is not cabaret. This is not performance art. There is no overarching narrative. Do not put this in one of those bourgeois boxes. This is a series of episodes that will explore the notion of que..oh..erm..quee..no it’s a kind of queh…oh wait a minute…Queer. 

 

Milk Presents take a wild stab at defining the indefinable in Self Service, a show that spans decades of popular culture, political upheaval and quaint normalness. This show episodically and sporadically leads the audience on a punk style journey through queer in an attempt to see what ‘normal’ really is when it comes to gender, sexuality and beyond. Can we use queer to explore different ways of living, loving, being and experiencing the world?

 

With original live music, animation and wild costumes, Milk Presents brings you more of their uniquely low-fi, raucous performance. From Ann Widdecombe’s crusade to protect marriage to influences from the Beatnik generation this show wears high heels a size too small and sun-glasses a size too big.

 

Developed as part of the east.by.south.east network, Europe-Art-Touch residency at Theatre Pôtoň, Slovakia, The Showroom, Chichester and The Point, Eastleigh.

 

This is a work in progress showing, your feedback would be much appreciated.
