After their first sell-out solo show SWARM at CPT last year, Liv Ello is back with this work-in-progress of their new solo show interrogating the relationship between class and gender in Britain through anti-drag persona, Jack The Mack.
He’s a lover and a fighter
He’s a cheeky little blighter
He’s a mod and he’s a punk
He’s a commy and a drunk
Some say he’s posh and he’s a queer
Or are those just the things he fears?
So grab a pint and ponce a smoke
And see if Jack’s really a bloke
Through the nostalgic lens of Britpop, classic sitcoms and potato smileys, Liv Ello combines a raucous blend of music, comedy and monologues to subvert and disrupt class-based portrayals of masculinity.
This performance addresses themes of transphobia, homophobia and classism.
This performance contains strobe lighting, haze and smoking.
