MILK PRESENTS: SELF SERVICE
Do not adjust your
television set proscenium arch. This is not “theatre”. 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 unleash their definition of 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 queer journey to see what ‘normal’ really is when it comes to gender, sexuality and beyond. Self Service pokes fun at the way we live our lives and things we take for granted; like getting married, having children and drinking Starbucks. Let's explore the possibilities of queer, of different ways of living, loving, being and experiencing the world?
Original live music, hand-crafted animation and risqué costumes, Milk Presents return with more of their inventively low-fi, uniquely raucous performance. Prepare to be part of a world where Ann Widdecombe and Madonna are blended with the Beatniks and beyond to create a show that wears high heels a size too small and sun-glasses a size too big.
Milk Presents will be heading to The Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014 with Self Service. Keep your eye on twitter and facebook for more information.
