With Lara Buffard and Natalie Wong, 2017.
All hail the new queen in town: Pipi-PhuckMeDontitme, Runner-up for Miss trans Asia 2016.
Equipped in her sash, crown, Mai-Tai and Long Parliament light, Pipi enters our kingdom to insert some glitz and glamour made in Asia and dispatched with love to the English islands. Jew-venile and Vita Dolorosa have already integrated themselves in English culture, now it’s time to help others.
And tonight is about Pipi.
Through a series of tasks and real-time exercises with audience members Pipi will acquire a made-in-England survival kit, with new tools that will help her succeed in this new territory. This culminates with her attaining the ultimate certification of a real queen, instead of the fried banana between her legs, Pipi will be bestowed with a tasty delightful pudding filled with custard.
Trans-forming Pipi attempts to investigate the term-QUEEN, against the backdrop of a first world cosmopolitan city.
This piece is transgressive in its theme and mannerism; it aspires to merge between artistic conventions of performance art and cabaret, and break social taboos playfully.
Performed at Bethanel Green Working Men's Club for Cuntemporary's Deep Trash- Royal Trash and at Toynbee Studios as part of Steakhouse Live, London.
