Motherland - punching fascists in the face through the medium of drag.
Know that feeling like you can’t say anything? Like you don’t know what you could say? Like you don’t want anyone to start shouting, or tweeting 25 tweet threads at you? It’s not right, violence. But then maybe sometimes, just sometimes, you feel like it is.
So what do you think of the state of your country today?
Some people say it’s about needing British values. Some people say it’s not about intolerance, it’s about not tolerating intolerance. Some people say they don’t mind change but its happening too fast. Some people say we need to decolonise, get back to the true India.
Warning: this is a visceral full bodied dragged up queertastic howl of a show, and it makes no apology for it.
