The Queens are back! After exploding onto the Fringe scene in 2017, global phenomenon bring their sell-out 2018 Fringe show into Soho Theatre for their one-stop global reunion tour from the 14th November to 1st December.
After a sell-out global pop tour that came to an earth-shattering finale one year ago– DENIM broke up. Humanity has been in mourning, the time/space continuum has officially ended and Miss Sixty has stopped production of their Jeanette Jeans in tribute to DENIM’s greatness.
But weep no more because the five Queens are reuniting, returning to where it all fell apart all those years ago! The imperial talents of Glamrou La Denim, Aphrodite Greene neé Jones, Crystal OBE, Elektra Cute & Shirley DuNaughty are to grace Soho Theatre once more.
DENIM are an all-singing, all-dancing, all laugh-inducing queer pop girl band for the ages. The Queens are back in fighting force to give the people what they want: a one-night-one-stop whirl-wind stadium comeback tour directed by Soho Theatre’s Artistic Director Steve Marmion. Join DENIM as they bring their brand of explosive pop to the capital, tackling adversity with their own unique blend of glamour, intelligence and humour. It’s drag as you’ve never experienced it before.
DENIM were founded whilst the group were at university and are made up of Amrou Al-Kadhi, Guy Woolf, Charlie Parham, Hugh Wyld & Tom Rasmussen. Each Queen has a different story and identity. Glamrou is about showing you can be queer and Muslim, no matter what people think in a time of global Islamophobia, Crystal shows the world that working class people can rise to the top (just like cream!) and become show-stopping popstars. Shirley is a perfect pink princess but underneath her sweet exterior, there is steel within. Aphrodite may have some presidential skeletons in her closet but is dedicated to being the best mum she can to her strapping sons. And Elektra wants to bring down this capitalist society – from the comfort of her dad’s Kensington mansion. Denim are all about showing the power of being true to your identity in a time of global division. And having the best goddamn party at the same time!
Sponsored by MAC Cosmetics and Bumble and Bumble, DENIM are a rainbow-coloured Trojan horse determined to take on The Institution. They have been performing to audiences around the world for the last six years and had their debut at the Edinburgh Fringe to rave reviews and sell-out shows in 2017-2018.
14th November – 1st December 2018 (not 18th or 25th)
