Drag King pioneer and legendary performance artist Diane Torr is our special guest this evening. She will talk about the documentary and her work. An unique opportunity to get a peek behind the scenes.
In the documentary Man for a Day we follow performer, activist and drag king pioneer Diane Torr during one of her extensive workshops: ‘Man for a Day’. During this workshop a group of women examines the impact of gender appearance on who they are. In the course of a week they search for the man they always wanted to be. Funny and confrontational at the same time, both documentary and key figure Diane Torr show the impact of the drag king movement.
The film premiered at the Berlinale in February this year. This will be it’s Dutch premiere.
