Night of the Queer TAPAC

Celebrating sexual diversity in all of its gender-bending glory – Night of the Queer returns to TAPAC for Auckland Pride with a brand new show set in an exotic garden of earthly delights. Featuring dazzling dance, extraordinary aerial artistry, sassy song, bold burlesque and diva-licious drag....

Bee (Monty Montgomery) is a virgin and is sexually confused. He turns to his friend Bird (Bryony Skillington) for advice. However, it seems they need to go higher up for help and decide to make the journey to pay Mother Nature (Aeyla Duncan) a visit. On their journey Bee and Bird run into a rainbow of floral characters, each with something to show the Bird and Bee.

There’s charming, gay Red Rose (James Luck); free-loving Orange Tiger Lily (Ellyce Bisson), bi-sexual Purple Venus Fly Trap (Rebekkah Schoonbeek); fetishist Green Poison Ivy (Electra Shock); self-loving Yellow Daffodil; and the suave Bluebell (Colette Wilson) with equal parts yin and yang. Together they make up the rainbow, which symbolises the queer community.

Since launching at TAPAC in 2015, Night of the Queer has become a cult classic and a highlight of Auckland Pride Festival. Celebratory and inclusive, the show offers a platform for some of Auckland’s most talented queer performers and emerging queer artists.

The 2020 season is presented by the dynamic dance theatre company Luck & Schooney, who co-produced the 2018 & 2019 seasons with TAPAC.  Luck & Schooney are world class entertainers who are renowned for their heartfelt and sexy shows that explore serious topics in a playful, comedic way.
