Drag ‘n’ Drop!

Ri Baroche

In a world where gender has been outlawed, only drag can save us…

Dragona Budjet (it’s pronounced bou-jzay, m’kay?!) is one half of high-energy drag removals company Drag ‘n’ Drop! She really puts the all in removals, bringing entertainment and education in unequal measure. Rifling through the universe’s rhinestoned curtains, join her on a journey through music, comedy, and spoken word, deep into the near dystopian future of gender neutrality and across the nebulous territories of queerness, identity, mental health, climate change, and quantum physics.

In a show that puts the feathered eyebrow in high-brow and the dick joke in Phillip K. Dick, Dragona gets to the top and bottom of the biggest questions: if a drag queen falls in a forest, will her makeup survive? Where does self-worth come from? What’s a lesbian doing on the island of Lesbos? And where the hell is Drop?

Written and performed by non-binary/trans writer, performer and musician Ri Baroche, Drag ‘n’ Drop! has been developed through workshops and exploratory sessions with LGBTQIA+ youth projects Breakout Youth and Freedom, to positively express and celebrate representations of LGBTQIA+ people and their stories. Themes of quantum physics and LGBTQIA+ representation in STEM subjects have been developed with support from charity Pride In Stem. Special thanks go to writing development agency ArtfulScribe, writer/performer/director CJ Turner-McMullan and Apricity theatre company, G(end)er Swap, makeup artist Vince Ugly, the Exeter Phoenix, The Alma Tavern & Theatre, Bristol and The Lighthouse, Poole for their support throughout the development process.

Developed with support from Arts Council England.
