Island of Servants
In a comedic romp set in 1725 and beyond, four characters from the Paris(ienne) bourgeoisie find themselves shipwrecked on an island populated by society’s former servants. A world turned upside down, the islanders revel in their freedom of expression through the means of drag and club kid-inspired attire from major queer scenes throughout history. All grapple with the reversal of their social roles, in this celebration of the outrageous and creative.
