Young Vic Taking Part has released the first production images for its upcoming production of queer show Sundown Kiki.

Queer production

The new production is billed as “a bold celebration of Queer South London in all its glory’, created with and performed by Queer young artists from the Global Majority. 

Filling the Maria with sequins, celebratory togetherness, and a healthy dose of shade, Sundown Kiki brings the world of theatre and ballroom together in an explosive evening of music, dance, walking and partying, the Young Vic said.

Moreover, the production, which started on 5 November and will run until 12 November, is set to be live-streamed around the world.

The famous London Southbank theatre confirmed the stream will take place this Thursday (11 November) at 19.30 hours GMT.

Taking Part is a Creative Engagement Department that works with young people, adults, schools, and the local community.

It engages with over 15,000 people a year, providing free tickets to all the Young Vic’s shows and free creative and artistic opportunities to its participants.
