'Ooh, it's so good, it's so good
It's so good, it's so good, it's so good
Ooh, I feel love, I feel love I feel love,
I feel love, I feel love'.
It’s 2069....and the whole world is queer.
Voguing and lip syncing are categories in the Olympics.
There is a statue of George Michael on Hampstead Heath.
And Starbucks own Pride (boo!).
Forty-six years ago, in 1977, setting out to create the sound of the future, Donna Summer recorded queer anthem I Feel Love. But what will life REALLY be like for queer people in 2069, forty-six years from now?
Armed with a vintage Donna Summer vinyl, playwright and performer Alexis Gregory decides to find out.
FutureQueer is part speculative queer excavation, pop-culture commentary, and meditation on disco music as a metaphor for queer survival. Basically this show is camp as f*ck. It’s also funny, moving, hard hitting, irreverent, and provocative.
Alexis’s previous work includes Riot Act (King's Head Theatre, West End, Tour, Digital Adaptation) and Sex/Crime (Soho Theatre, The Glory).
