Part of the new epic rock cabaret trilogy, The Legend of Queen Kong recounts the narrative of Queen Kong — part rock, part ape, part immortal mythological being — on her trip through time and space on a on a mission to learn what it means to be human.
Imprisoned by humans for being too large, our legendary hero calls on a passing meteorite and breaks free, embarking on a journey of transmutations that finds her meeting a bi-curious multiplicitous singularity. Narrated by neo-punk cabaret diva Yana Alana and featuring The HOMOsapiens, this is an epic space fiction, and supernova spectacular.
Ferociously talented, endlessly provocative and unquestionably hilarious cabaret performer!Theatre Press
Queen Kong In Outer Space is Episode II sees Cabaret star Yana Alana star in this epic Rock Opera. The play is backed by queer rock band The HOMOsapiens. This compelling new performance brings together Cabaret, Rock and mind blowing visual projections by style icons The Huxleys.
Queen Kong explores the questions: Are we evolving or simply revolving? What do we have to overcome in order to change?
This new contemporary theatrical production shines a spotlight on social issues such as gender equality, religion, global warming, and mental health. It is more than theatre.
