Duckie Family Presents: Legacy

PICTURED: Crowd at Duckie Family by Almass Badat

DUCKIE FAMILY return exploring the roots of queer people of colour and the legacy they have left and continue to leave, behind. Redressing the misconception that people of colour have no LGBTQ+ history of their own, Duckie Family Legacy calls upon inspirational ancestors and artists to create and produce an unforgettable night of music, dancing and performance.

Duckie is an arts enterprise, homo-social performance club for extraordinary populations. Known for their legendary 22-year weekly residency at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern to winning Olivier awards at the Barbican, they are purveyors of progressive working class entertainment who mix live art and light entertainment.

Their latest event - Duckie Family Legacy -takes place on Saturday 17 February, 2018. As with previous Duckie Family events, the evening is curated by Kayza Rose & Campbell X. Kayza also works with key organisations such as UK Black Pride where she is head of media. Campbell X is a film maker and is creating something especially for Legacy, to be shown on the night.

Co-hosts are cabaret queens Mzz Kimberley and Sadie Sinner, alongside hype-man: Mr Black Branson. Performances come courtesy of fiery post-burlesque artist Demi Noire, renowned for her work with the Cocoa Butter Club, uncompromising performer Lasana Shabazz, Jacob V Joyce with a signature blend of punk-infused verse, voguer supreme Kyle-London, Hip Hop dance from Rain Crew drag delights from FKA, live artist Vijay Patel & as if this was not enough, the ultimate in hula hoop mayhem from Symoné.

Offstage, away from the dance floor there’s a chance to experiment with tribal face painting and head wrapping, creating opportunities to be documented via photographs and writing by AZ Magazine, for future generations to enjoy.
