Time Flies when you are having fun…
This picture was taken as a promo pic. We were asked to take Club Wotever and our Wotever Cabaret on tour. We had gigs in Warsaw and Stockholm coming up and we also had a show at Hackney Empire planned…
The set up was easy, I just called the venue where we had started Club Wotever, a venue called Bar-B-Lo, and asked if we could come in and shoot against their brick wall.
Photographer Sam Nightingale, who also was part of the original crew took the picture. We were all in our performance character, showing who we were via costume and attitude. Jacq, the Fabulous Drag King Trevor 4 Ever, one of the absolute funniest people I ever met. Seriously, Jacq have such a big heart and always made it easy with plenty of humour and easy going attitude. She brought tons of skills from touring and performing in Melbourne. Me, Ingo in the middle. I am my alter ego Red Viking, a Drag King with political pathos and somewhat boxer instincts (Red Vikings story later became part of the show & film The Lovers & Fighters convention), To the right, Lazlo, Lazlo Pearlman, the showman and performer extraordinary, he did his Gender Magician and travelled around with a big box. .
Sitting you see Josephine, the lovely Josephine Krieg (was Wilson) Matrix Calm, Dancer and Accademic – she brought style and diplomacy to the group and her talent as a performer have only grown over the years. Maria, DykeMarilyn, the brain child of Jimi Hendrix and Marilyn Monroe, she performed with such a style and such class.
Picture is from 2004.
The Picture was also picked up and used in Metro, Warsaw when we went there an ddid a show. This is us, Front Page.
