trixxie carr: The Right to RULE plus Party
Featuring: trixxie carr, Honey Mahogany (San Francisco), Jeremy Bailey (Toronto), Ultra Violet Violence, The Volkov Commanders, Tranarchy and Eggs Collective (Manchester).
Plus Pumping Iron DJs.
Only suitable for ages 18 and over.
No one should have to fight for the right to be awesome, yet ruling classes exist (royalty, government, capitalist and corporate), sometimes because they are revered and respected by their subjects (possibly power bottoms, ‘topping from the bottom’ as would be said in a BDSM community), and sometimes through violent and oppressive regimes.
Faux queen trixxie carr, a born-female drag queen orphan from San Francisco, examines the right of those outside of the status quo ruling classes to succeed within them, regardless of birthright through lineage, and instead by right of being. As in being. Here. Alive!
Revolutionary in her radical inclusion through art, trixxie often seeks out people who aren’t necessarily experienced in drag, dance, acting or singing to participate in her numbers as well as her theatrical works, creating a shared learning experience as well as a shared stage experience. For Manchester, trixxie will be fusing alt-drag with fashion, live music, riot-theatre and interactive new media.
Believing that everyone has the right to rule, whether in the context of being awesome onstage, or leading revolutions in art and culture via artistic means to improve our time on earth, is to her a personal choice, the success of which lies in action itself, the doing of the thing, and she invites all of Manchester to RULE with her for AND Festival this year!
