The Patchworks Ensemble & Gaysi Family Present “Tape – The King of Drag”

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Shammi Kapoor!

Welcome to Tape — an evening of metamorphosis where men become women and women become men and kings and queens walk among us.

Set in the leg shakin’, hip swingin’ 60s era, Tape’s protagonist will resurrect the King of Bollywood: Shammi Kapoor. This performance will not only be an ode to the man’s man, but also a sneak peak into the drag subculture which we know so very little about; a subculture that celebrates, parodies, and enjoys the gender the performer takes on.

Take a look at how the alternative of the alternatives are doing. Be a part of an event dedicated to the wonder oddities in our lives that we just can’t seem to get enough of. Enjoy an evening that turns masculinity into theatre.

Lady Jughead lives and writes in the city she loves and hates, Bombay. Without meaning to and harbouring mixed feelings about it (You’ll see the irony in just a bit), she’s forever wandering in the murkiness that exists between straight and gay, clear and clueless, butch and femme, cute and hot, and genius and insane. All of which leave her with a question that often occupies a significant portion of her cognitive capacity – is she Just Perfect or is she falling fast into the deep chasm of obscurity called Just Average?
