Book Now: Shaun Parker & Company Present King
Acclaimed Australian director and choreographer Shaun Parker and Bulgarian singer-songwriter and performance artist Ivo Dimchev will premiere their music-dance collaboration King as part of 2019's Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras festival.
Shaun Parker & Company conjure a fantastical world, part cocktail bar and part jungle, in which young men vie for attention with feats of physical prowess until one is singled out as leader. As the dynamics of the group emerge, elements of control and male power are interrogated, exposing the socio-sexual-political structures that inform toxic macho rituals. Shaun Parker & Company uses its striking, highly physical choreography and theatrical inventiveness to take a hard-hitting look at masculinity.
The performance is set to a soulful original score performed live on stage by Dimchev in his Australian debut.
