The Legend of Queen Kong II: Queen Kong in Outer Space

A space-fiction rock concert of meteoritic proportions

Sarah Ward, the artist behind Yana Alana, brings you her latest stage creation, QUEEN KONG, after five years of writing, rewriting and live gigs to this latest incarnation.

With complete disregard for conventional chronology our narrative starts in the middle. Prodigal protagonist Queen Kong — part rock, part ape, immortal being — has been imprisoned by humans for being too large. She calls on a passing meteorite and breaks free, embarking on a journey of transmutations and bi-curious encounters through time and space.

This mythological rock-god is backed by all-queer, all-gender-diverse rock band The HOMOsapiens and features deaf performer Asphyxia and Auslan Interpreter Kirri Dangerfield. Sarah Ward has been working tirelessly on this powerhouse performance project with director Susie Dee, dramaturg Anni Davey, visual projections style icon Will Huxley and animator Finn Scholes.

The Legend of Queen Kong will be performed in English and Auslan with subtitles, and a rocking live soundtrack.
