Preview: Does Anyone Know Who DKR Is?

Of course you do, or at least you will once you go see them! They are only the most amazing Gender Performance group ever to hit Ann Arbor! DKR, or Drag King Rebellion, uses the power of music and dance expression to entertain and educate. Each dancer brings their own unique character to the performance and provides us with many different gender identities, experiences, and all around awareness.

The troupe isn’t all serious though. They use a diverse range of music to deliver joy, sorrow, comedy, and energy to the audience. If you’ve never seen them, you really should go to their show this Friday night.

They are performing twice, first at 7:00 pm and then at 10:00 or 11:00 pm. I keep getting mixed messages about the times, since DKR had to switch venues recently due to the Blind Pig’s discriminating guests. I will be attending the later performance with a few friends, and we are so exited! We’re getting to Sh/AUT around 10:00 just to be safe. You should definitely come and enjoy yourself!
Venue: Sh/AUT
315 Braun Court
Ann Arbor, MI 48103
Cover Price: $5.00/person

I'm a Junior in LSA majoring in Italian and minoring in Art History. I love writing for art[seen] because it gives me the opportunity to show all of these amazing shows that the University brings to Ann Arbor. We get some world class performers and I would be really bummed if I missed out on anything that I'll never have to opportunity to see again. What you need to know about me? I'm not a writer, an art expert, and I didn't grow up around this much culture. I am a busy student at UofM, so if you are judging me for something, it's okay because I won't have time to respond. I'll just keep seeing shows and you can be jealous!
