Lipstuck

Lipstuck
 Presented by PICA as part of FRINGE WORLD 2020.
 
Experience an intimate queer kaleidoscope, fusing live alchemy, participatory performance, and verbatim storytelling. Eclectic experimental artist Daley King lays bare the stories behind the lip shade, sharing the engrossing anecdotes and fascinating insights of a diverse community of humans. Vividly dissecting the zeitgeist of lipstick, Lipstuck examines its history as both a tool of body politics and a weapon of oppression. A bright rainbow light in a black and white world, Lipstuck fights back against the binary and the systems that determine how you live your body and your life.
Praise for Daley King’s Hold Your Breath (Count To Ten):
★★★★½ “Daley delivers the audience into an almost euphoric state as we achieve a baptism into the world of self-acceptance.” The Fourth Wall, 2018.
Initial concept developed at KISS club 2019 with PICA and pvi collective.
 


 
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Exploring the outer limits of experimental performance, Daley King generates unpredictable and uncomfortable art in a celebration of chaos. Squarely aimed at destroying the status quo, Daley creates socially-engaged, politically-charged works exposing the zeitgeist – the fringes of society, and the furthest corners of humanity.
