Drama Queens features six famous sculptures as its protagonists. As ‘personalities’ the sculptures assume characteristics from the cultural zeitgeist in which they were produced. Remotely controlled, the sculptures ‘perform’ to a seated audience, thereby reversing the typical roles of how an audience engages with art in galleries, as well as traditional concepts of theatre. The specially cast group of actors, will voice the sculptures, which will be performed live for the first time.
All proceeds from this event will go to The Old Vic Theatre Trust Creative Development Programme, including a special new initiative to bring visual artists and theatre practioners together.
